  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...
  14. Thank you for your input! @glenn I trust you blindley! Still: Do you have sources where this is explained? In my mind, having two filter after each other should not be a problem (apart from adding noise...) Going with the micplexer would tie my qrx200s to block 23 if i need to use all my trx. I am upgrading the qrx100 to an 200 eventually. @ramallo What made you change the AS-122 (and to what)?
  15. In a pipe or not, surrounding air pressure changes constantly. Any mic will handle this. Don't worry...
  16. I am considering buying one of them. I see an advantage in the AS-122 for having more inputs, wider band (so i could use one receiver in a totally different block) and a bit cheaper. My kit is all zaxcom (qrx200 and one qrx100 block 23 into a nomad 12) What are your thoughts? Have one of you compared these devices? Is there a potential issue with the qrx200 and the AS-122 regarding the filtering? Thank you and happy new year!
  17. I just learned it when checking on my dealers website... Sorry to be late. What chargers do you use? Sound guys solutions one look nice. Is there a "smart" charger? Or is it not necessary with these?
  18. I just learned that the TRXLA3 (The single AA version of Zaxcoms "normal" transmitters) is discontinued. Am i the only one who for maybe no particular reason feels uncomfortable when thinking of switching or adding np50 batterys to the arsenal? I am thinking of getting an ZMT3 phantom though... #showerthoughts
  19. So that means they run off 3V "plug on power" without batteries? They still need to be charged, right?
  20. I actually meant if they can be powered by some sort of phantom power or supply voltage... Thank you for the information!
  21. Can the mics be powered by something other than the (AAA and built in) batteries?
  22. She told me on the phone today that it is a new one. I don't know the differences apart from having to choose between different positions... I will tell you when it arrives me.
  23. Lemo has a new right-angle connector in the 0b series. I just talked to my lemo sales person and she told me that you can choose from 8 different positions. After assembled it is fixed. FSG.0B.305.CLAD32Z I ordered some and will post pics with it on the mini when i am done with my cables...
