  1. I think you’ll just have to buy a few feet of a few different kinds and try it out yourself. I like the matte durable jacket of 1804a but the shielding is not the best. But it is quad so kind of a trade off. Reel system? Now that’s interesting. Will it be spring loaded/self winding or more like a fishing rod?
  2. That cable you linked to is worth a try. It’sa more elaborate solution than what I proposed. If you have a buddy with a soldering iron just try modifying one of your existing XLR cables.
  3. Try getting a cable that has pin 1 and the shell tab grounded together at the mic end or both ends. I found that with my brand new (2019) MKH50s they needed to use cables wired this way to avoid some fluorescent light related interference on set. It didn't sound like your sample but certainly worth a try. Another idea.. make sure the 10 dB pad isn’t on. If it is maybe that’s just what the Sony adapter noise floor sounds like.
  4. Totally depends on what kind of work this person is doing. If you want just a few solid wires in a small doc bag 822 or SRc might be the best choice even if you need a couple of them. You don’t need to worry about things like antenna distribution for that kind of setup.
  5. Look at the UCR822 as well for a more advanced two channel receiver. Which transmitter really depends on a lot of things. Do you prioritize size or battery life mainly. Want to stay on the legacy analog digital hybrid system or try out their new all digital stuff?
  6. Polyfuse ratings could be a whole discussion all on it’s own. If you read the spec sheet they have a lot of grey area in regard to when they’re actually going to “trip”. For example you might choose one with a 12 amp rating and assume it’s going to trip right at 12 amps but they’re thermal devices so if the box you put it in generates heat then you need to look at the derating curve and see how that effects the current hold and trip specs.
  7. Pretty much all new digital transmitters on the market are 50mW max. Not saying it’s not a bummer but 50mW is looking like the standard going forward.
  8. Thanks for the report, John. I’m curious, did you notice any improvement in sound from lavs with a full 5V?
  9. What is the current status of the DME band in the UK? This blog post is from 2019. Still only able to license in the UK?
  10. A lot of these on Amazon are powered by USB so easy to work with 12V or AC. THEY ARE CHEAP. In all ways.
  11. Yeah this shouldn’t be hard to find something you like. I got something like this recently. https://www.amazon.com/BZBRLZ-Brightness-Adjustable-Eye-Caring-One-Button/dp/B07PKKM4B1/ref=mp_s_a_1_12?dchild=1&keywords=led+articulating+work+light&qid=1618610607&sprefix=led+artic&sr=8-12
  12. I don’t see why a new SR is needed. If Lectro could have made the 822 smaller or made it 4 channels they would have. Not a fair comparison to look at what Wisycom did with a completely analog system and expect Lectro to shoehorn their newest digital system into the same. I only have one slot mount receiver, never used it plugged into any kind of slot, and I don’t see the point anymore. I know there are a lot of convenient accessories out now for slot mount but to expect it to go on forever is very much the tail wagging the dog.
