  1. It's not the picture quality i was talking about, it's the food it's self. Just doesn't look appetizing. Enough on this topic.
  2. With all due respect to the food of your country all the pictures just didn't show me any thing I'd like to try.
  3. A coating of clear nail polish avoiding the mic active element will work wonders in keeping the new caps in place. Black nail polish will seal & prevent further cracking of a black mic cable due to the drying out of the cable plastisizser (use clear nail polish for other cable colors) but when the cable begins to show it's age by chipping & cracking it's time to invest in a new lav.
  4. The on camera reporter is wearing a lav mic on his jacket lapel. You can see it at 23:00 on the time code on screen. Lavs are pretty much standard gear for news reporting as it gets the mic closest to the sound source and no one cares if any one sees it. The Sennheiser MKH 50 sounds too big & rich for news. Someone a long time ago told me that "lavs are for TV broadcast, boom mics are for movies." Switch to your lav & wireless system and you'll sound just like every other news broadcast.

  6. As I recall the PB tape sets all the PB parameters in the PB machine, nothing to do but push play. You set the parameters when you record the tape and it's auto play after that.
  7. Thought I'd jump in with my home setup. Magnaplanar mains powered by Carver M-500t 375 WPC power amp w/10" powered sub fed thru NAD Pre Amp. JBL passive rears with Onkeyo 110w receiver & 10" sub.
  8. Sounds like fun. Thanks for all you do.
  9. "Thank God for the last minute otherwise nothing would get done" .
  10. Between yours, Jans & Whitneys meetings my dance card is full.
  11. I be there now. As empty as Times Square.
  12. While the noise is very low level it's there. My guess would be something in the air that's being picked up by your wireless.
  13. and here I always thought that "How Long" was the name of the man who owns the local Chinese restaurant. Say what you want about Senator but he did not suffer fools gladly.
  14. Thank you Doug. I need something to do to keep my mind occupied now that I'm retired.
  15. Sure, easy to rewire. Open the 5 pin, the wire that connects to pin 3 gets connected to the tip of the 3.5mm TRS, the other two wires on the 5 pin go to the sleeve (ground) of the 3.5mm TRS. Have fun. P.S. the tip input connection is for mic level signals & the ring is for line level. All connections are unbalanced.
  16. Gave up the 7506 HP's 15 years ago for the Ultrasone HFI series. Never looked back or regretted the move.
  17. How tragic and sad to lose a lifelong friend, confidant, soulmate and extension of yourself. Heart felt condolences on your loss my friend.
  18. Years of lav mic repairs has proven that shrink tubing works best with heat guns. Start the shrink with the heat gun furthest from the tubing so that it starts shrinking slower, building up the heat too fast can & will cause issues with both layers of tubing insulation. Trust me on this one. Eric
  19. An Editall block with a single edge razor blade was the best way to edit 1/4". I've still got my blocks from Gotham Recording in NYC back in the early 60's.
  20. Go over to SoundHard.com and see Justin & Lucas, they can hook you up.
  21. I would strongly suggest the Sanken CS-M1 as an all around replacement. You have to hear it to believe it. It has for many users replaced their 416's, CS3e's,, MKH 50's and many other de facto standards. $895
  22. If you can open the connector check to see if there appears to be a short between the pins or a broken solder point. Does squeezing the mic cable anywhere along it's length change or stop the whine?
  23. Thank you for your good wishes. I will try to fulfill them. Eric
