  1. Try 25-30 on a 6061. 15-20 for a 6060.
  2. I like SMVs the best. Or SMa either one is fine. SMQV is too big for me but if you’re going for long battery life it can’t be beat.
  3. They’re not my favorites. They work fine and have some advantages like the menu navigation and wideband tuning. I think they’re overly large and chunky and I dislike the battery door which sounds trivial but when you use it every day… Personally, I think you should buy a couple of used SMs (SM, SMa, or SMv) and either 411as or an SRb or SRc. Then you’ll really know what Lectro is all about.

    Larry, any plans to offer these for the 941 band?
  5. Yup, just the automatic report that a 633 generates is all they get from me. If I remember to do that much. I’ve written emails explaining complicated setups involving music recording but there’s no time to do it during the work day. I label the tracks and name each scene something sensible if there’s time for that.
  6. Would love to be able to vote yes but in Chicago our local has some side agreement so we won’t be part of the vote.
  7. How do you like the new Deva? Any crashes or other weirdness?
  8. The 633 is still great for simple bag rig stuff. You’d need to be ok with just 3 XLR inputs with phantom power and use one of the line inputs for inputs 4-6. Which is just fine for wireless receivers. More simple than an 8 series and more battery efficient.
  9. Good question. I’ve ruined a few by using the wrong size hex. Never figured it out.
  10. Yeah the battery door sucks on these. The way they put the label sticker on NiMH AAs means that with this unit you don’t get a reliable electrical connection. They really need spring contacts. stick to alkaline or lithium for Betso boxes.
  11. The indie pro is 6A max if that’s enough to handle the total of what you’re posting then go for it.
  12. Do a search on mouser and digikey. I like Meanwell brand power supplies but there are many quality brands. If you can chop the factory ends off and solder on a 4-pin xlr you’ll save a lot of money here. The remote audio one in your link is 13.8V so that it would top off a lead acid battery when wired in parallel. You could use any 12V supply if that feature isn’t important to you. How much gear you’re powering will determine what Amp rating you need. 14A is a lot. For reference an NP1 can provide a bit over 4A.
  13. I would think a lot would depend on how the diversity arrangement of your particular wireless works.
  14. Still waiting for someone to beat the original Lectro SM… they nailed it with that one. All core functionality completely solid… range, size, durability, ease of use, battery life. Total professional piece of gear. Even Lectro can’t beat it. Seems like everyone is designing new products to impress with bonus features but fail when it comes to meeting the core functionality of the previous generation. you’re describing Zaxcom’s power roll feature to a T.
  15. That’s true. I don’t think that would add back a lot of runtime but we’ll see what they say.
