  1. Fabian, I just got curious and opened the KAT 15 P48 unit. It has a very different circuit layout. Can't see how a T-Power unit could be converted to 48v phantom powering. Lloyd
  2. Hi Fabian, While going thru my NAGRA accessories stash I found a KAT 15 P48. My no.1 KAT 15 works with a dynamic mic it does not work in T- Power mode, even though it puts out 9.89v,whereas the other two units work pefectly. I emailed Sennheiser asking for a KAT 15-2 circuit diagram. They emailed a job no. so I wait to see if one turns up. Where did your circuit diagram come from?
  3. Hi Fabian, I have two KAT 15-2 units and they each have different brands of cable on the Tuchel side. The XLR side on both units is: pin 1=braid or braid and white, pin 2=red, pin 3=blue. This cable has a black outer sheath. In T-power mode I read +9.89v on pin 1 and - on pin 3. The Tuchel connector I described to you has a cable with a grey outer sheath like your photos. I also looked for KAT 15-2 circuit diagrams with no luck! Not sure what else I can say except page 19 of the manual discusses the NAGRA line input and why they use current
  4. Fabian, Looking at the open Tuchel plug: pin 2 is yellow, pin 3 is blue, pin 6 is clear, braid is soldered to the metal outer shell which is permanently connected to the threaded back part. On the circuit diagram, pin 3 is connected to the unbalanced banana plug input on the left side of the Nagra 4.2. If you can find someone with a 4.2 or IV Instruction Manual its a great read generally as well as a beautifully laid out Synoptic Diagram which details what is connected to what. Lloyd
  5. Hi Fabian, The NAGRA 4.2 instruction manual says pin 2 on the Tuchel 6 pin plug is common to the chassis, pin 3 is the 3.73 uA input (audio input), pin 6 is -10v stabilized and filtered for powering an accessory unit and 100mA may be drawn from it. Cheers, Lloyd
  6. In 1973 I got to visit the Gunsmoke set. The executive producer was John Mantley, the episode was called "The Widowmaker". One day location, one day studio. The whole main street of Dodge City filled a soundstage complete with dirt floor and forced perspective scenes at each end of the town with the road leading out of town to the right so they could ride horses and wagons (buckboards?) thru the main street and of course stage high noon shootouts. Unfortunately I can't find the studio day photos but here are some of the location day. Gunsmoke 1 Camera & Sound Van reduced.tif
  7. Hi Oleg Ditrich, Mario Sabatini at Broadcast Workshop in Melbourne would be able to help you. They are the official Nagra agents . They also have a massive stock of spare parts. Phone 03 9329 7655. Cheers, Lloyd Carrick

    Mario Sabatini at Broadcast Workshop in Melbourne is the Nagra sales and service agent in Australia, phone (03) 9329 7655. He has a remarkable stash of spare parts. Cheers, Lloyd
  9. Curious. In the past I used it to play quite loud thru a Nagra DSM amp on set and also checked music for playback, listening on headphones, and did not notice any particular added noise or hiss. L
  10. Possibly use a BEHRINGER U-CONTROL UCA202. It plugs in to a USB port and has left and right RCA outputs and an 1/8th" headphone output with its own volume control (could drive a small battery powered speaker). Cheers, Lloyd
  11. The supply reel platter has a break with a felt pad linked to the left tension roller. This felt pad has a special grease impregnated in it. Eventually it wears too far for the rod adjustments to do their job. Perhaps the pad needs replacing. Cheers, Lloyd
  12. Boyhood was screened at the Melbourne International Film Festival last August then had a release, in Melbourne at least, some time afterwards. Various Melb. film critics consider it one of the best films of the year. Cheers, Lloyd
  13. Hi Chris, On the ACMA website the info you want is titled "Wireless microphones - Spectrum for plug and play users: Melbourne and surrounds" Cheers, Lloyd
  14. I discovered the ECM16 had a tiny transformer in the black base and managed to convert a couple to balanced output.
  15. Maybe a Sennheiser MKH 816 Cheers, Lloyd
