  1. Hi Kuba, I haven't tried Line Audio for dialogue purposes, but for music. It sounds very good, excellent microphone. I wish if Line Audio had a supercardioid version of it.
  2. I like the sound of 4071 from DPA.

    New SD 833

    RF64 and the "hidden connector" is the most interesting for me, otherwise has a "logic" features as production sound recorder.
  4. Don't make the mistake to buy Sennheiser EW 100 G4. 100 series plug on transmitter does not provide phantom power. You need 500 series - EW 500 G4 plug on transmitter.
  5. We are using over 5 months now, Timecode Systems Ultrasync ONE. No problems so far, we have damage one cable (at BNC termination, not DIN). I am charging them every two days; 20 hours of operation / 10hr continuously and still has battery lifetime for 3-4 hours. Size is small. I like the silicone case with velcro. Is there a 90 degrees of DIN connector?

    Best Lavs?

    Capturing a motorbike from distance during dialogue will sound the same with XX.XXX equipment and X.XXX equipment. In terms of good quality gear: Currently I am first assistant sound* for a big budget tv drama in Greece. We are using Wisycom, Sonosax, Sanken, Sennheiser, Rycote etc; all the well knowning manufacturers. I like the combo between Wisycom - Sanken - Sonosax. Sometimes we win the battle of good audio, sometimes we lose the battle. TV Drama take place in 1900 - 1920 year, so the challenge is big of not capturing modern background noise. Generally I am a big fan of Sennheiser MKH 70, Sennheiser MKH 50, DPA 4071, Sanken COS11D in terms of microphone. I have been impressed with the headroom and sound quality of Sonosax SX-R4+. What I am missing from Wisycom, is the ability of change settings from distance (let's say bluetooth ability), because if we need to change battery or gain or frequency to the transmitter, clothes is not an easy to deal with it (bonus: make friends at wardrobe dept.). *Good film sound starts from a good first assistant sound; make sure you get one. BTW I have no clue if I am good or medium or bad first assistant sound lol
  7. Something like this will help? https://ursastraps.com/product/backstraps/
  8. Does your microphone has been wired for Lectrosonics and need to be re-wired for Wisycom? I am not sure if Lectrosonics and Wisycom shares the same wiring scheme. Check it out.
  9. Hi Ari and welcome!
  10. Agree, Wisycom manuals isn't helpful at all.
  11. Happy Birthday, Sir!
  12. Story takes place around 1905-1909. Live-physical location at Museum of the City of Athens. We can't touch anything from museum, only some paintings (modern era); so that doors with glass behind gave my nightmares. It's the most interesting project I started as assistant sound - boom op after many years. PS. This is going to be a television drama series, 30 episodes. We are shooting 5 pages per day so far. Thanks to Allen Lee Williams III for the black jacket recommendation.
  13. That's a good test for Deity products under Sonosax mic preamps I really like the sound from R4+
