    45 -50 degrees is the flex limit. Glenn

    Zaxcom ZMT3-Flex.

    The battery is not designed to be changed during the production day. It does come out without harming the rubber case. It requires soldering 2 wires to the battery to change it. The idea is that the end user can do it (if handy with a soldering iron) or at any service shop. It would take about 10 minutes. Charge time with the drop in charger is about 2 hours. Changing the battery does not harm the rubber case. The battery is a 1300mA Li Ion cell that will run the unit for 6 hours with 24 hours maximum standby time. The unit is very water tight but not IP rated and is not submersible. We are working on the exact specification for this. The unit is intended to be used on sweaty sports players. A dunk in the loo might be OK as it is a floater. 😉

    The unit is 4.8 " x 1.7" x .4 inches. It would be great for car visors. Where thin and stereo would be a great combination. Making the decision to go microdot was not easy but it was a good one. While we have had stereo body packs this is the first with 2 separate mic connectors. Glenn

    Zaxcom and DPA6060

    Agreed. The 6060 is the closest I have heard to a large diagram microphone. Glenn

    Zaxcom and DPA6060

    I just ran tests here at the factory with the DPA6060 connected to a ZMT3.5. This powers the microphone at 3.3 volts. As a performance reference I had the pickup taped to a 4063. What I found is the 6060 blew the doors off the 4063. The 6060 has 8 dB better sensitivity and a super low noise floor. So reducing the gain of the transmitter yielded a lower noise floor by 8 dB over the DPA4063. Because I do not have a quiet room here at Zaxcom the actual noise floor I could measure was lower by about 5 dB as i was bumping into the ambient sound in our factory.. In short, this is a great mic to use with Zaxcom transmitters. It operates perfectly at 3.3V and I highly recommend it. Glenn

    Yes it does have neverclip on mic/line inputs 1 to 12. Line inputs 13 to 16 are without neverclip.

    I think the trim may come up as active when you enter the input page. Glenn

    The Deva24 does not have that virtual input trim function like Nomad. You can press the input button to get to the control quickly. I think the pfl key might select the channel on the Deva24 fader when in the input menu. Glenn

    Hi Tony, Any Deva 24 knob can be set to be a fader, input trim (analog or aes) as well as a zaxnet control. Glenn

    DPA 6060 works great with Zaxcom and sound wonderful.

    I was told directly by DPA engineers that the only effect would be a small decrease in dynamic range of about 4 db overall. this makes sense as the difference between 3.3V and 5V bias is 3.6dB. There should be no noticeable change to sensitivity or noise floor. This mic has a max SPL of 134 dB. Changing this to 130dB with a 3.3V bias will not be significant. This is why Martins test went so well. I will check back with DPA today to confirm. Glenn

    Deva 24

    Yes the Deva24 has full control of Zaxcom wireless with the internal IFB transmitter. This of course includes Audition and Re-Record. This is integrated into the MIX16 and Oasis with the Audition and re-record buttons on the mixing surface. The Deva24 is fully integrated into the wireless microphone recording system and the Zaxcom IFB system with time code distribution via Zaxnet. Glenn

    Deva 24

    The Deva24 came out of what I would consider "Beta" almost 1 year ago. We do continue to add features that are non core functions like the internal Zaxnet functionality. Just like the recently added Audition and re-record on Nomad, we continue to upgrade products with features that enhance the value and functionality of the product. The basic functionality with solid reliability has been there for a long time now. Glenn

    Zaxcom ZMT3 Hiss

    The TRX743 has a 6dB better noise floor than ZMT. If lowest noise is the deciding factor TRX743 is the best choice as it also has never clip eliminating limiter distortion. ZMT phantom 2 has many advantages but smallest size and lowest power consumption limit other specifications a bit.

    Zaxcom ZMT3 Hiss

    What you are hearing is the noise floor of the system. Companded FM wireless like Lectro hides the noise floor with the compander and then further reduces it with noise reduction software. The result of Zaxcom is a lower distortion transmission with a more open sound. The transmitter has a downward expander that can be activated if you want to lower the noise floor but very few find it necessary. The TRX743 noise floor would be lower by 6 dB and still provide all the other benefits of the Zaxcom system. I would also recommend the ZMT Phantom II. Using a separate 48V supply does not yield the best results as the ZMT3 can not shut down its LAV power supply and is a unbalanced input by design. The ZMT phantom II is a true balanced input and also works with LAVs Glenn

    Dynamic mic for under water use with Zaxcom ZFR400

    You can use a dynamic mic with the ZFR400. It would be best to wire in a series capacitor with the mic to block the DC bias. About 2.2uF would be fine. Glenn
