    Sound Devices SL-6 Limters and Wideband

    Thank you for the input Graham. Do you, or do you know anyone, who has real world experience with using the SL6 in wideband mode without the filters on? I just wonder how it performs in a congested RF environment like LA or NY.
  2. Hi Guys, i am looking at adding an SL-6 to my 688. I have an SRC-A1, an SRC-B1 and an SRC-941. I see Sound Devices has updated the 688 firmware to support the SRC-941. I assume the SL-6 would need to be operated in Wideband mode with no filters on. Does anyone have experience with running an SL-6 in Wideband mode? How is the RF performance with all that out of band RF coming in? I know the latest SRCs have pretty good filtering, but would hate to have performance issues like I have had at times with using Wideband Venues with VRTs on multiple blocks without filters. On another note, it seems the analog input limiters will be bypassed on inputs 1-6 when using the SL-6. It is my understanding that the A to D conversion happens in the SL-6 ahead of the 688. I am not quite sure of the signal path. Is there any input overload protection when using the SL-6, or for any other digital inputs, for that matter? My mine product these days is iso tracks. Any postfader compression/limiting is a luxury for me, but input overload protection is what I need. Excellent RF performance, and clean iso tracks, are what is most important to me. As cool as the SL-6 appears to be, I can’t compromise on those things any more than I already have by not using a 788 and 411s. And I don’t want to run the retailer through the return process if my odds of success are low. Any input would be appreciated.
