  1. Can anyone confirm if there is a maximum frequency spacing on the MPR52 if used in two channel mode ? i.e. Both channels would have to be very close together in the same block/channel. I read this is the case but i can't find the reference to it again. As a side note a few of us in the UK have been put off purchasing the MPR52 as the frequency range stops at 800mhz and doesn't include channel 65 (823-832) which is available to us in the UK (under our standard rf license) and in Europe under the same blanket agreement which gives us channel 70 (863-865). It doesn't detract from the very impressive wideband range and its utility worldwide but its not very practical to have to pay a temp license for frequencies in the UK when there is a 9mhz channel very much under used.
  2. I would also like to see balanced outs, mainly because it would increase the potential market for Sonosax in a big way i.e. computer AD/DA for music. I would mainly be using AES out in the bag or on the cart with SXR4+ and the analogue for iem/possible mic pre for wireless boom or simple straight to camera jobs. It would be nice if the faders could be used as controllers in the SXR4+ but no biggie. Apart from that it looks great size/function and i know the mic amps are very very awesome already.
  3. Wow - the cart looks great and still very compact. This is perfect for the smaller equipment we have nowadays esp mixer/recorders. Where did you get the rear brakes from ?
  4. I was gonna ask about price - but im fine with my stellavox atm.
  5. There was a prototype being shown at the recent Sonosax 40 year anniversary of a two channel ADC DAC aes in and out with the same mic amps as the sxr4+, headphone outs and also usb to use as a computer interface in and out. Richard Thomas has pictures and showed us, you could pm him here. The box is very small so could be used instead to replace two mic amps on the 688. Its called the SX-M2D2 not sure when due for release and may be revised as a few of us have requested such a unit for expansion on the SXR4+ but smaller and less inputs than the 8 channel unit they have for sale now.

  6. Out of interest did you record off tape (playback head while recording) from the nagra into the 788 ? I have found this doesn't sound the best. I still use my Stellavox alot for music recording as it sounds way better than my digital kit (which is Sonosax and sounding very good ). I have found recording straight off the playback head while recording does not sound as good as doing a tape to digital transfer after the recording has been done ( a few music engineers i know agree with me ). Obviously separate tape to digital transfer not ideal on set ,end up recordist/dit. I wondered out of interest as a commercials director i know was wowed by a Stellavox recording i made and we are trying to work out the best route for some simple stella recording spots for commercials. thks Lisala
  7. Hi Alberto, Thanks again. I am a Sonosax man for film sound recording, i used a Cantar X2 a long time ago and it sounded very good but i prefer the Sonosax. Maybe because I am so used to it and how it behaves. All subtle differences but i do want very good mic pre's because i am listening all day and i find the really good mic amps make my day less fatiguing which also means i make better decisions. Thank you again for the reply. Lisala ( soon to be SXR4+ owner )
  8. Hi Alberto Thanks for explaining your setup. I also have an SXS8 and and do intend to have a similar setup with the SXR4+(still using SXR4 atm). Is the limiter you mention being "smoother, and more natural" the output limiter on the SXR4+ ? One more question how do you find the mic pre on the SXR4+ compared to the Cantar X3 ? Thanks for your insight. Regards
  9. I have been thinking along similar lines. I would like a half height unit like the ad8 but with only 4 faders and 4 mic amps, so like an ad4. I would also like 4 line inputs and 4 outputs on the same unit and a talkback mic as with the 8 fader only unit. I am waiting to see if sonosax will implement the ethernet port on the SXR4+ . If they do then i would not want to be in the position to have to choose between either the output expander or a dante etc/ethernet port. I can see the possibility of using the SXR4+ as afront end for a computer great for offloading rushes to the editor on set and also to be able to do multitracking playback. Obviously i would still need the extra outputs for all round general use. I still use analogue radio mics and an analogue sxs8 mixer. My ideal is to use all these with the high headroom sonosax AD converters.
  10. Alistair - I hope you don't mind but I've copied your ingenious solution. I had the boom holder cup and lockable bracket from backstage which i wasn't using so this couldn't be better. One day with enough sleep i might actually come up with my own ideas. Lisala

  12. Hi Apologies i thought i had deleted the quote, long day on set. I was actually going to say i have complete faith in Sonosax. I have been using their products for years and this is just part of the development time. The fact that they immediately alerted the problems and now have a fix is testament to this and to Sonosax as a company. I am quite happy to wait for the fine tuning because my existing sonosax setup sxr4 and sxs8 is working absolutely fine with no problems. I would say to Plush just be patient for the required features. I personnaly never early adopt because the firmware development is inevitable when the real world makes contact with any product in our business. This is and has been true for many companies making professional audio products, I do find it a bit strange that sonosax is being singled out when sound devices has definitely had big problems which they have also resolved. Thanks are due to those braver than me and to Sonosax for having an open dialogue with their sxr4+ experience on this forum. Lisala
  13. Respect to you Wally Heiders studio produced some of my favourite ever recordings. Here in Europe I beleive the Telefunken M10 machines were so expensive that Abbey road could not afford them, they had to settle for Studer C37's 😳 Lisala
