    RVD: " Doesn't answer your question specifically, but it's a start... I only offered my opinion. " actually, that was a guess... but my point is reenforced as you are speculating by (only) what it looks like, and not even guessing based on the sound... no one saying anything resembling: 'it has the bite of a 416', or 'it sounds like it is rejecting as well as a CS-3e' or it has the warm sound of a Neumann, or it sounds as clear as a Schoeps or even there was virtually no handling noise, I'll bet they used the Cinela... As for "newbies", well sorry folks but they really need to be guided to do their own troubleshooting, their own looking up, their own searching, IOW do their own homework.
  2. I was hoping to upgrade, or trade up my DEVA II

    CN: " What mikes did you use on the show? " what mic does it sound like ?
  4. RW: " I feel storing anything there is gonna be a pain trying to sitt down and lean your back against something. " then don't use it.
  5. will there be a trade-up offer ..?
  6. jt : " Turning on both Bolts shows an additive increase in signal which is now problematic. " yes. " In the mean time, has anybody run across this before ...? " yes, it is RF interference, and we talk about it here quite a lot. " And should a product that works in the 5ghz range be spewing out noise in the 500mhz range. " maybe, maybe not, but they frequently do... the FCC (USA) does have some regulations regarding such "spurious emissions", but even with good RF design (quite a complicated topic itself) there are frequently RF emissions present at harmonic, sub-harmonic, and intermediate frequencies. there are numerous other factors, including... TV: " Also make sure they are using good shielded SDI cables, have had RF issues before from shitty cables. " there are typically significant differences amongst cables, connectors, and adapters; and price can be a clue... AVU: " Quality cable is a must. " RPS: " I wonder what would happen if Zaxcom and Lectro and others built radio mics that affected the remote focus and HD monitoring? " these devices are not only sources, but also must contend with all the other stuff out there, including our's.
  7. will it be possible to upgrade the older models ?
  8. GS: " as you move farther away from the center of the tuned frequency the RF level quickly falls away. " exactly!
  9. 78: " I've never really understood why people don't contact customer service " maybe real sound people don't call CS...?
  10. CK: " Are Wisycom doing one in London UK? " you could ask them...
  11. 78: " I don't know if that would void any warrantee " while in contact with Zaxcom, you ask them...
  12. Angelo quoted CL : " The sketch will be featured on the front page of Funny or Die." how do they know this? I think they may be dreaming... " we promise you will have fun working with us." unreasonable expectations, or ..? " This will be a very fun shoot " not if I'm working " and a great credit. " also in your dreams...
  13. JF: " effectively killing all RF outside of the set 35MHz window, " err.... I'm skeptical...
  14. to enter one does not need to "join Facebook", but only to find out if you have won... or maybe someone on FB will pass on the word to any non-FB winners..? please..?
