  1. Thanks! It is the UM400a version which i believe means i need the dad3056 adapter.
  2. Got lucky and found a nearby forum member with a used 411/400 setup in good condition. Thanks for the replies.
  3. Re daniel: Thanks for the explanation. I think it is a good thought for the future. For now I want to try it out as inexpensively as possible.
  4. I think I'm going to hold out for a 411/400 given the thoughts here. The fact that i can probably resell it without losing much money if it doesn't work out is a strong selling point. This is over my head but i do know that $3500 is out of budget.
  5. Thanks for all of the input. It sounds like the used market prices are a pretty good reflection of the quality you get.
  6. Thanks! I was curious about the 200 series. I've read some comments that they are actually pretty good. Others indicate a considerably worse battery life and more problems with interference. I think i could live with the battery life if the sound was was actually really good.
  7. I want to get a used wireless setup for audio documentary work. We mostly work with a single subject usually more rural than urban. I'm concerned primarily with excellent audio quality next with battery life. Changing batteries is an option, but going out and getting 3-4 hours of audio at a time isn't uncommon. The rest of the gear is a mixpre 3, sanken cs-3e, rode ntg3, and dpa 4060. I was hoping to get a used lectosonics 411/400 kit and have seen a couple deals at around $1100 but $1350 seems to be more of the going rate. However, i would love to spend less to try out something we aren't sure how much we will use or how valuable it would be. Are there some other used lower cost options that will still get us great sound? I'd love some suggestions from people with real world experience. Thanks!
