  1. Looking for a splitter solution myself. Now, I have a two double Sony DWX (so also digital) receivers, and i am wondering if it's better to use 2 way ZFSC 2-2+ passive splitter from Mini Circuits with about ~3.5 dB loss, or future proof myself and go for the 4 way ZFSC-4-1-BNC+ already (about 7dB loss) Larry, am I right that the loss in these expensive active and passive splitters is just a fact of life, and all they do later is gain up what is left? Sorry If this is obvious, but it's good to reassure the basics sometimes. Also, the digital systems are not as sensitive to the signal loss as long as there is sufficient distance from noise? So the digital receivers do not have to 'see' as much signal as the analog ones to work alright? Thank you so much for your knowledge and time folks, I learned so much on this forum. Hope the Senator is fine also....
  2. $2700? That is more expensive than AATON Cantarem 2, which has 12 faders.... A lot And i bet it works only with Nomad 12...

    Do you plug them straight into recorder? Which one is that? I read they're 150 Ohms.
  4. Is this compatible with Nomad 10? What is the ~price?
  5. I monitor my output busses with the Nomad. They have output compressors engaged all the time. Sometimes somebody wants to make a 'joke' and scream into my boom. I tell them they have no chance
  6. Do you have the DWA-01D adapter? I'm not sure the Receiver outputs analogue signal without it. The output pin assignments are in the DWA-01D adapter manual.
  7. Thank you guys. The microphone works without problems with the Sony DWX system.
  8. There are biological effects from non ionizing radiation. It is not advised to have any device emitting 2.4 gHz or 5 ghz, and most any other (especially digitally modulated with square and other digitally generated modulation schemes ) microwave frequency near your body. Some people are more prone to it, some are less. Anyhow, the effects have been known for years now. French government banned Wi-Fi devices in nursery schools in 2015, and added a lot of extra requirements and warnings concerning use of such devices near children. There are scientists, among them Olle Johansson from Karolinska Institute, Magda Havas, and many others that have been studying the effects of the microwaves on human wellbeing. I for one suffered from severe headache once from Teradek video village that spew rf thru a bad cable - and my boom op had the same symptoms, we talked about it afterwards. Tingling is also a known skin sensation to me, when the rf signal is stronger, it can be a burning sensation. You can believe me or not, i do not care - i was once able to detect wifi router presence when they first started to appear. Caution and good reason is advised. There are protective (shielding) fabrics, and since we as soundies know the RF propagation and how antennae work, can use the technology responsibly. The less RF, the better. Sometimes i get worried about camera operators having the 5 ghz Teradek router near their head for 12 hours a day. There are solutions that help a lot, thought - shieldheadwear.com for example.
  9. The best you can get for that project would be Sonosax in my opinion. M2D2 being the smallest and cheapest you can get.
  10. Hello! I have a "legacy" DPA 4060, serial number H78221 does anyone have an idea of it's compatibility concerning RF immunity to digital tranceivers like Zaxcom, Sony DWX, can it be used without digital rf noise getting into the capsule? Thanks
  11. i wonder if it would be possible to add a battery pack thru usb charging port if somebody would need a really loooong day of shooting (maybe someplace really remote). Could work.
  12. looks like the KMC9BPD-4P(71) is discontinued Anyone knows if this is the correct replacement? https://www.digikey.pl/products/pl?keywords=KMC9BPD-4P(31) EDIT: I have this now https://www.mouser.com/PCN/Hirose_Electric_430_18008.pdf and in the row #74 the replacement for KMC9BPD-4P(71) is KMC9BPD-4P(31) Hirose_Electric_430_18008.pdf
  13. There are threads here that explain how Neverclip(tm) works, and in a nutshell it uses two a/d converters to extend the possible dynamic range of an analogue input of the recorder. Now, this only works if it is set up properly (no input compressors, compressors on card tracks and/or output busses, activated ISO ATTENUATION) Note that it only extends the ad dynamic range of an analog input so it is not responsible for distortion that comes before that input - eg., from a wireless transmitter (most likely), or wireless receiver. Are the radios recorded to analog ins or digital ins of the Zaxcom recorder? Too many variables to tell. Contact the mixer, let him explain. Do workflow tests together if he's unsure. Yeah a bit too late for that, but at least you'll learn something for the next shoot. And please, do not bother Zaxcom with stuff that is available in the manual and on this very forum (and youtube, Glenn Sanders and others talked about ways of using neverclip for many years now) Be well.

  14. Active antennae need power. They will not work without it. They are a different design. https://www.rfwireless-world.com/Terminology/Active-Antenna-vs-Passive-Antenna.html
  15. This is a great idea. You should get in touch with Sound Devices!
