  1. 1- the power source can be intermittent depending on what you're drawing and if the cable youre using is finicky. the choice of using a micro plug was abysmal and an ill conceived design in and of itself. any messages telling someone to connect the power boost could likely just be poor contact or a bad cable. 2 - this lack of plug and play has been an issue for years. the order in which you connect and disconnect your dc and usb plug will affect what messages come up. the firmware update message really doesn't do anything but cause migraines when something was done out of order. you can
  2. There's a post on this in the Lectrosonics Facebook page
  3. While I've never met her, Nancy is a CPA who has done the Gotham q&a on taxes the last few years. You can meet her in person at this years event in February. http://akmcpa.com/about-akmcpa/nancy-l-adams/ Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk
  4. Will you be back within 30 days? You could put a hold on mail with usps if you really wanted to. Also, the mail is sent directly from T-Mobile. I can't see the FCC terminating a license based on a third-party not being able to deliver some mail - certified mail which you have no legal obligation to accept - to an otherwise valid mailing address. I'd be more worried about not responding to an actual FCC request, but I'm not an expert so this is really just my opinion.

  6. I was surprised at first too, but a system over a decade old is going to be noisy. That's why im begrudgingly with sennheiser iem's. But after listening to the pristine Lectro duet iems, it's obvious they have the means to upgrade their ifbs. Maybe it's simply a matter of a lack of consumer motivation?
  7. I had a mic sent in at the end of last winter, not expedited. They received it in connecticut on the 8th and sent it back out on the 25th by ups ground.
  8. Learned years ago to always carry a backup set of lyres. When you set your boom down, make sure it never tips over.
  9. While this may seem brute, i've taken a few 302's, flipped the opening to the ground, and literally just banged them with a quick, hard downward smack into a solid object like a table ledge and they would always pop right out with the right force and angle. I mean, the units are frickin solid themselves so the batteries just end up becoming a loose projectile. worst case, if doing so does damage something inside, i bet it'd cost less to have SD or yourself repair some loose solder points than to replace your battery tube.
  10. in terms of passband filters i've read: LR/SRC - 15-20mhz SRB - 25-26mhz 401 - 30mhz 411 - 11 mhz
  11. imo it's simply not made for film work. it sounds fantastic in all other respects - especially music/interviews - and has excellent low self noise, but the low frequency pickup is unbearable and any low pass filters at any hz to accommodate handling make it sound ridiculously duller than it should. not to mention the need for much, much heavier wind protection (heavier than stock windscreen or a rigged schoeps teardrop, further killing your freqs). rycote lyres (hard and soft shore) with 416, cs3e, cs2, mkh50, 60, 641, cmit5u and 3 different boompoles. i've never had to tippy toe as
  12. Avoid the 8050. On a boom, it's an absolute nightmare with handling noise. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  13. Same as Peter, i've also been using some with my cos11s with great success for button situations. Definitely picking up more soon. Thanks Abe!
  14. and what has been the response when it was asked previously? It was probably the same. I agree with everything Norén said, but i think you should absolutely avoid ever hitting someone with the boom. Getting in as close as possible, sure. but that can be learned with caution and practice. I've never hit someone while trying to get within inches of their head. Always remember safety first. And I'd caution against using analog mixers for new production sound mixers or one man bands. Yes, I understand why it was the norm for decades and why it's always suggested, but the modern requireme
