    29 year TV News Camerman/Editor in NY metro. Station was defunded in 2011, June 30th. Forced into early retirement, time to re invent myself and invested in a pre owned 552 from Jared Simmons and a pre owned 302 from Scott Minor and a pre owned 442 from Devendra Cleary and have been doing freelance sound since 2011. I have recently upgraded to the Sound Devices 633 and 6 Lectro 411/srb units with SMQVs and all the industry standard wired mics. The 552 and 442 have moved on to other owners I now use the 633 and 302 and love going to work every opportunity I get!!

  1. Has anyone jumped in with the newest Lectro offerings? Is the digital architecture noticeably better? I see you can potentially have software upgrades done without sending units in. What are the other plusses in your opinion? Negatives?
  2. Of course!! Thanks for the quick reply and link!
  3. I currently have the DCHT/DCHR combo and use them as a camera hop. I have an upcoming shoot and an additional wire is needed. I thought of the DCHT/DCHR combo but realize it isn't ta5 in. What have you done cable wise to make it a talent lav? Re solder a ta6 onto an existing law, have a ta6 to ta5 wye so 2 lavs can be sent to the DCHT? Any ideas/ insights are welcomed! Thanks
  4. While recording can I send audio via my mixer to/thru my I Phone XR so someone can listen remotely?
  5. no no, 2 friends were in clinical trial, one received placebo and became infected well after trial ,,, the other said he had chills, fever etc after second dose and at some point I assume they were notified1
  6. Martin, Were you in a clinical trial with Pfizer/Moderna? I had a couple of friends get into the trials, ONE got the vaccine the other the placebo, One got covid pretty bad (placebo) .... now has to wait 90 days from when she finally tests negative!
  7. Inspired Energy! 98 W , 2 days powering 633, 48 v to shotgun and SRC and Hop!!
  8. I currently utilize Sanken Cos 11s, Countryman B6 and Tram Tr 50s. If I'm not hiding the mic I like the TR50s, hiding the Cos 11/ B6. I have had more than a few caps get buggered in both Sanken and Countryman, I'm looking for a more robust mic...is the DPA 4061 that mic? Nearly 2x the cost of a Cos11? Your thoughts/opinions?
  9. The striking thing to me is, even after you have had the second shot, production companies are still requiring a Covid test, FREE if you have enough notice 3-5 days, but here in NJ a rapid test is 119$, twenty minute results! I don't see a return to normal any time soon! MHO
  10. I too hold a part 74 license! I have the Block 941 Lectros with SMQV and Butt plug...NYC Metro/ Philly...never failed to find clear freqs!
  11. Stasha....a street cat that was cruising the hood for 4 years...finally we tamed and had her spayed and brought inside!! 891A9977-3302-4986-9CBA-BA460CC4B4D1.heic
  12. All of my work has gone away!
  13. I had been using an SRB 2 SMVs as a camera hop, never had an issue with phantom power frying unit...moved away when I saw DCHT/M2R combo but got burned with Phantom power and no true line level!! I am doing mostly scratch track and recording internally, what units don't get fried buy+48 hitting them? Do i go Zaxcom, Lectro L series wideband, Sony UWP, Sennheiser? Thoughts
