  1. OK, my opinion, we got what we paid for buying the 8 series with the specs it included. Because it is powerful enough to add apps that cost extra, this doesn't mean that they should be freebees, and in fact I think the profit margin was likely less than one might imagine on the units but higher on add on software and hardware (SL-2 or CL-16). That being said if anyone is taking it in the shorts it is the retailers that sold the units, they don't get a cut of these apps extras even though they sold the original units. I think Gotham Sound has more of a gripe than I do. All that
  2. Any thoughts on SDNX vs Noise Assist and why the former is better? I tried both on my 8 series and it seemed that the SDNX did not change the volume of the vocal signal but reduced the background A/C whereas the Noise Assist works well but in comparison creates a lower level and when this is cranked up to match that of the SDNX then one starts to hit the limiter and the noise, although still reduced, is louder and harsher than SDNX. At three times the price, it is hopefully better, any "experts" here have some input on the comparison?
  3. I will say that I just looked at the SD remote that is now included for iPhone in this version, and it is quite brilliant.
  4. you are right it was 4K but I traded in my 633 so around that much. I just think it is a little pricey for a feature upgrade, but many might disagree. At that schedule I would never buy more than two instances for L/R.
  5. Good news, SD released 8 series 7.20 today. Bad news, noise assist, which now can cover 8 channels costs $2000 for that version, almost as much as my 833 was to purchase.
  6. I did some research looking at UV lights for my surgery center, here is what I learned. While UV C probably would kill Covid-19 effectively, it has to be directly exposed on the item and not in any shadows. That obviously poses some limitations. More importantly, while UV-C lights that are in "fluorescent" type tubes are the real deal (200-280nm), many of the supposed LED UV lights are fakes from China, and do not have germicidal effect, not saying that was what is in the box mentioned, but they are LED type bulbs. The fluorescent type tubes are very hard on skin and eyes, and degrade some
  7. I got it running on an iPad Pro - very low latency and nice menu integration.
  8. The CL 12 is not a currently offered product, so unless you happen to have one, it does not really help an 833 owner. Yes, one might be had used, but not a good solution for a new product line of the 8 series. While it is true that this is overkill for an 833 in terms of capacity, it should still work should someone be so inclined, the architecture between the three machines is pretty similar and so far they all run the same software.
  9. I agree, purchased the 833 just before the 888 was announced, and although it is fine for my needs now, had assumed all the "8" series goodies would be compatible. Had I known of the new CL16 not being compatible (which was pre-announced at the time of my purchase) I would have waited and purchased the 888 instead. Like I said, probably not going to impact me much, but for others I can understand some heartburn.
  10. I received the AES device today, and installed on my 833. I had to slightly rearrange my bag to compensate for the "bump". It auto-recognized the XL-AES and I set up channels 5/6 for AES wireless (instead of 1/2). Now I have 4 channels of analog and last 2 for wireless with controls. Interestingly (at least to me) I set up channel 8 as USB connecting through the USB C port. With this I can connect to my laptop and both import and export, for instance with Logic Pro X talent can hear a project playing through the headphones and simultaneously record on a track. Likewise, I can route track
  11. New firmware was released to allow connection to the AES input device, but I don't see the documentation regarding implementation or routing of this capability on any of the 8 series. Just found it
  12. Now showing on SD website, now showing for pre-sale on Gotham Sound ... XL-AES $195.00.

    OK $3795 for the MCR 52 but $4745 for the MCR 42. I have one set with the MCR 42 and really like it so if I was to get a second set it would be with that. I believe when I purchased this set originally it was even a better offer, but that was when they were first introducing Wisycom to the US market.

    Where is that package deal if I might ask? I did one of those a few years ago, love the Wisycom, might want to get a second set.
