  1. I never had to change a microdot connector on my dpas but I changed some cos11s to microdot. It is a bit tricky and it took me a while to find a good connector (it sadly is not from the original brand)... It won't look as nice as the dpa ones but works...
  2. And get a chestbelt for the lav. The heavy sweating might become a problem with any kind of tape...
  3. I added some ZMT3 X to my kit and i have to say, i love them. I also converted some of my cos11 to microdot wich was no problem at all. The transmitter get less warm than the trxla ( i had some actors complaining but i think it never was a real issue) and size, form and weight are super nice and easy to handle. I also used dpa 6061 with it and they sounded great. No issues. The only thing i wish, and i talked to Howard from Zaxcom already about it, is to have separate gain control for the two inputs. But the preamp is super clean and it is no problem to use digital gain on my nomad... Also the charger bay from Motorola is quite big, but you don´t really need that portable since there is no need to change battery... 😄
  4. You should talk with your tax/business consultant about that question. It makes total sense to lease things but if it does for relatively cheap items like sound gear, I think I can't give a general answer.
  5. I do like to add one to my kit. All my mics are lemo (sanken and VTs) is there an adapter cable out yet? I do wire all my things by myself, but don't know if it pays off to add the microdot tools to my arsenal... Any thoughts of you colleges who did similar?
  6. For testing purposes run the tc through a mixer and play with the level. If you can reproduce/eliminate the problem you know it is that...
  7. I carry a backup 4ch zoom in my support backpack. On cart I split as early as possible and be redundant. Test your gear and media. Record on two cards parallel. If your system crashes completely you anyhow have to stop and fix it... So, no, on my bag I have no backup recording. I have it on all transmitters though... (zaxcom) For playback purpose I also often send a mix to camera or village...
  8. It is always :1 ground 2 in 5 out Cheers
  9. Hi folks, I am going to add the mkh 8060 plus the Emesser ATE208 to my kit. Have any of you experience with this combo on an zaxcom 743 (or 742) s? Or general MS recording with this transmitter. Thanks for a good discussion!

    TC cable

    Thanks for the great input! I have a crimp tool. Will check out rg174

    TC cable

    What cable do you use for making proper tc cable? I have best results when using mic cable from a multicore I don't need any more. They work best on the lemo side but i struggle sometimes to get it nice on the bnc side. To solder the shield on the bnc shell works but doesn't look nice. Using a 50 Ohm bnc works well on that connector but sucks soldering on to the lemo 5pin... Best regards!
  12. With the right tools and a steady hand it is not that hard. Without a big loupe with led lights I wouldn't even start. The picture is just an example.
  13. What crimp tool do you use for the ferrule? I know there is one from lemo itself but is there a cheap, good alternative? I use the small hole on an rg 59 by now but it seems it is not as stable as it could be...
