    Sennheiser G2 Receiver-No output

    I'm sure you have checked it already, but the 'AF Out' setting could be set low, particularly if feeding line level which also do not affect the meters' modulation. Otherwise, If the meters do indicate RF and normal audio activity, I would then suspect the output cable assembly. If that checks out, the output jack and/or it's internal connection. If I recall correctly, the G2/3/4 EK-100 portable receiver's output is unbalanced, so the 3.5 plugs ring terminal is floated, The XLR pins 1 and 3 are tied together to the shield wire

    New toys from Klark Teknik

    I used the legendary Klark-Teknik graphic EQs in the music biz for years prior to working sound for picture, I would not hesitate using any of their products if applicable.

    Red question

    Yes the Epic & Scarlet had two mono L-R inputs. I've feed them unbalanced mic level from a G2/3 (common and shield/ground tied together). There is also a menu setting for unbalanced as I recall. The Epic was squirrely, one minute OK, the next, no audio at all or distorted. The Scarlet was more stable, but still prone to a "RED moment". The audio is only good for a scratch/sync track if that. Even with TC a clap slate is a necessity.

    SD 302 cleaning

    I had a client that had some Shures and AKGs. The Shure TA4 mic plugs fit into the AKG's TA3 connector without issue. But the wiring config was different. So I would assume a female TA4 could be used in place of a TA3 since pins 1,2,3 would line up

    Recording a three man band with a 664

    For six inputs: Kick, Snare, OH, Guitar amp, Bass amp (or DI) and Vocal. Option: you could eliminate the snare mic and use that for the room. Obviously you'll probably need a two or three external pre-amps since the 633 only has three mic preamps. Most lavs cannot handle high SPLs, so get some dynamics for close mic'd sources. 57s and/or 58s are relatively low cost and good for just about anything that's loud.

    Recommendations for versatile PA speakers

    I had some Anchor speakers that are rugged, sounded good. The Liberty Air had an internal battery. The AC powered AN130 was small but put out about 100dB SPL I sometimes borrow a couple of 15" full range JBL EON speakers from a band I work with. I prefer their 515XT to the 600 series, the 600s's digital control module in one of them locked up, so I could change the mode from 'monitor' to 'main'. The 515XTs sound better anyway IMO.

    Remote Audio Phantom Lav Adaptor Thoughts?

    My OST Phantom Power supply XLR adapters, result in very low output with my B6s (almost unusable). All my other lavs,,,, Sanken, Sennheiser, Sony and Trams are fine though.

    USB power a Sound Devices 302?

    There are more than a few reports of rechargeable AAs getting stuck in the tube. I use regular alkalines, (which last quite a while) when external pwr. is not an option. I have not tried making a USB to Hirose adapter cable, which may work, but that's at the bottom of the 302's 5-18 volt range.

    Wich smartphone audio recorder APP?

    "I've been using Tentacle recorder (without using the TC feature) and am very happy with the results." -- Same here.. Of coarse a 3.5mm TRRS plug input cable or ext. interface was needed for my iPhone 6s... bizarre wiring config., the plug's sleeve is the + input, ring-2 is shield/ground.

    What is your spare recorder

    The F8n allegedly has an 'improved' HP circuitry. The 1st gen F8 was reportedly noisy, but that's something I could live with, (like the 1/4" line inputs) if I wanted to save a few hundred $$$.

    Large Boom pole case

    I got a White River fly rod case from Bass Pro Shops for my KEG-100CCR, the case is about 28" inside. A nice case and perfect fit for my KEG-100 . They have longer cases as well .. don't know if anyone makes an off-the-shelf fly rod case any where near 63" though They

    Setting Levels with Lavs>Mixer>Recorder?

    The transmitter sensitivity depends on the source audio's SPL, There is no 'one-size-fits-all' The G3 SK100 transmitters have meters on them, so anyone with grade school edu should be able to set the Tx input level. I recomend using the mixer for the boom mic and feed that to the recorder via line level. The radios (ISOs) can be plugged directly into the recorder.. line level as well, just set the G3 receivers' AF output to maximum. (+12 as I recall).. assuming you will have the EK100 series portable Rx. If the mixer has a return, that may be better for HP monitoring, the 680 has an anemic 50mW HP amp as I recall. The 680 also has an internal mixer for a stereo or mono mix track

    Zoom F8n.

    If you can live w/o some of the new features, you can probably save a lot of $$. Depends on what new features are important to you. For instance, I frequently need +4dB outputs for ENG work and the work-around would require some kind of line driver. "I believe that: headphone amp is the same" - Allegedly, the HP circuitry has been improved.

    Deity Connect.

    Most systems of this type can only have one TX, one Rx. So IFB use is pretty much out of the question for now too.
