  1. I’m using a right angle 1/8 to 1/4” so I can keep the headphones at 1/8, which makes plugging into my erx/urx much quicker. Also protects.
  2. I was given one half a year ago, I’ll post some A/B comparison with the COS11
  3. I switched from 3 SRb's to 3SRC's as soon as they were available. I've run them extensively in ratio and switch mode with 2 to 6 channels (a few times with an added 4 411a's for additional tracks). I've run them with LT's against SMQVs, SMV, SSM and the HMa. I've run them with walkies and in super extremely RF crowded events in NYC. I've recently inserted the Zaxcom Micplexer 2 in front of the SRC's using both whips and the RF Venue Diversity Fin Antenna. That all said, the SRC is a big improvement over the SRB. The SRC handles RF mayhem about as well as the 411a. Often times the SRC outperformed the 411a in switch mode, using whips. The power consumption on the SRC is up a bit from the SRb, still much less than the 411 per channel. The SRC's produce noticeably more heat than the SRb. The wideband transmitters have been performing about the exact same as the SMQV. I run the LT's and the SSM as my primary. I almost always run the boom through the HMa. The SSM with it's peak output of 50mW gets enough range and is my favorite piece of audio gear; it's just stellar. Tuning all the wideband transmitters through infrared is extremely efficient and has seriously sped my setup processes.
  4. Jose uses the Kangaroo PC
  5. Owned a Rode lav and had the connector completely fail after a small amount of work. Cheap, weak wiring.
  6. 2 years! My looooooord that's a lotta days! In that case, I'll be needing an SRb BK21 in the next half year.
  7. Can we revisit these idea regarding playback flexibility?
  8. Jan, you inspire me to be a better mixer. Keep it up! Regards, Joe
  9. Next time I'm bringing my makeup kit, gonna add about 20 years to the face and dye the hair grey. Everyone trusts the grey bearded sound guy.... :-)
  10. Hey guys, it was great to meet you all! Lets do it again. Regards, Joe
  11. If I'm not working I will join and have some sound beers!
  12. I've read on a few of these forums involving the Epic that the 1/8" out from the G3's would not pass any audio to the Epic as they are currently wired. One posted wrote that you have to bridge the ring and sleeve on the Epic end. Does that make sense? I thought it was a balanced input.
  13. I use these: http://www.amazon.com/ColdGear-Liner-Gloves-Under-Armour/dp/B000VJ0NDE They're great, the grip is perfectly calibrated to my needs.
  14. Amazing experiment Pete, that was really interesting. Thanks for diving deep into something we wouldn't dare destroy unless it's already destroyed. I would like to see dissections of other quality lavs and miniature mics to see what interesting engineering accomplishments they've come up with. The never ending creativity and craftsmanship from brilliant minds keeps me happily engaged with sound engineering.
  15. I have had 3 Tekkeon MP3450's and they have ALL FAILED MISERABLY! The customer service guy treated me like an idiot while I explained that it kept shutting itself off from overload protection (even with no load on it). Do NOT buy Tekkeon batteries, if you search around you will see that a lot of people have had bad experiences with them.
