    Lectrosonics vs Audio Limited

    Good lord that's incredible.

    What is your spare recorder

    "Yup, I've owned 2x DR680 before I moved on to F4 then F8n Even the F4 is better than the DR680 in every way for 98% of users. But yup, I could imagine there is a few 2% of people who could find the DR680 to be more handy instead. " – Yet, it is a bit disappointing to have so many digital recorders out there with no AES I/O and/or a link/cascade feature - not least as a link/cascade feature would make owning multiples of the same the machine have a greater value (and function) than just the sum of parts. "Many many times so over this thread." – Copy that!

    AES/cascade aside, I'd imagine a F8n is better than DR680 in almost every way - it's got 8 crappy faders instead of 1 crappy encoder/fader for starters :-). tc, dual sd slots, balanced o/p, fader board, better layout, colour display, app etc.

    Deity Connect.

    You must be VAT registered (and sales TAX in US is not the same :-). A10 RX = 2195usd = 1660gbp = less than Wisycom MPR52 (1887gbp inc VAT in UK). I get the feeling dealers here rinse the small guys to give discounts to the big guys - I'm probably totally wrong though. Still, if the only thing about any of this to significantly change is new products from PRC are good enough to do the job, then they wont just get my money they will get a lot of others money too.

    "Thats why things like the analog systems that operate in 2.4Ghz are bad and are restricted to much lower legal power outputs is because they essentially knock down WiFi signals all together because the WiFi signal doesn't see any holes in the analog signal that it can send out its pulses at all. " So will Deity Connect still work well in an environment with analogue 2.4ghz devices in operation? OT and perhaps contentious but... Products made in PRC seem to have more consistent pricing across our markets than products made in our own markets. Eg. Audio Ltd A10 RX: c.£2600 in UK; c.$2100 US. I get the taxation thing and the weak pound, but x 1.6! Zoom recorder prices are x 1.3! I guess the Audio Ltd acquisition by SD mitigates and exploits the brexit related fall in value of the pound - great for manufacturers selling to an international market, 1 more punch in the face for having to buy in (UK) domestic market.

    Check the SD FB page for feedback on current MP firmware. My current BU to 633 is a DR-680. Yes, it is limited and old, BUT it has the advantage (over MP series and Zoom) of also having an AES O/P so an extra 4 channels can be accommodated into the workflow (of 633) with 1 less journey through AD convertors for 6 of those channels.

    Boom Pole Quick Connect

    Out of curiosity: Has anyone reading, had a mic rig (or a red herring : ) fall off a quick release boom device? According to the Rycote page the Boom Connect has various options for the mic rig side of the connector which look like they would reduce weight and profile depending on what you choose.

    Perhaps Rycote had an opportunity to improve on the design (of the QRT) with the help of TimoK (formerly of Ambient) - i suggest this in a purely speculative, 2 + 2 = 5, type of way.

    Wisycom MPR52 with G3/G4 experiences?

    Hi Mattias, do share their response (if appropriate). I would guess the same about the upgrade path. WISY RX + G3 TX > G3 RX + WISY TX. If only because the Wisy RX can be used with various TX and there is the dual channel analogue RX (that senny never did).

    Wisycom MPR52 with G3/G4 experiences?

    Considering this RX (MCR52), maybe the bundle. I'm running G2000s at present. Aside from form factor (very different) - curious to know how much of a performance difference there is between MCR 52 vs MCR42? Anybody got hands on experience with both or heard dealer/manufacturer output on this? tar.

    Tentacle Sync Workflow

    My bad. With you on slates too. Scripted, multiple takes of same shot, pick ups etc, everyone focused & in record, finding things on the day and later on. No brainer really.

    Given the spectrum of manufacturer promotion on this forum it seems ridiculous to hold you to some higher standard.

    I'm sure there are editors who leave an obvious mistake or 2 in the first or second edit just so the client can feel important and clever when they notice it. I know, it's a cynical perspective :-)
