    Schoeps MiniCMIT or DPA 4017b

    -asking “which is better?” What does better mean? No choice works for all situations. I love my cmit for some situations - I hate it for others.

    Bill Drucklieb-- Cross posted from local 52 notification.

    Bill helped me out years ago-- he used to work with Ron Topham at the Audio Services NY. Just thought i would forward this to JWsound community.
  4. Brother Bill Drucklieb, a member of the Sound Department since 1994, recently underwent a triple bypass after having a major heart attack. Unfortunately, his heart was not 100% viable and after surgery is only working at 18% up from 12% pre-op. He needs additional surgery in a few weeks. To date, his medical expenses are over 200K and mounting, his meds alone are bankrupting him. He has no insurance and is living in a church-based mission for the disabled and homeless veterans in Omaha Nebraska after being evicted for non-payment. Donations can be made to the following GoFundMe page. www.gofundme.com/billdheartfunds Thank you,The Drucklieb Family
  5. Loved it. And Peter did a good job of selecting clips that were so well mixed and recorded and natural - and listening to them without picture was so compelling. More please. Thank you.

    Mercedes Metris OR Chevrolet Express 3/4?

    The VITO is the euro version- that is probably what constantin has... . It has many features that the Metris does not have in the US. Better seats, mirrors etc... For some reason- the ones that are avail here. I wanted a VW transporter- avail all over the world... not here...:( j

    Mercedes Metris OR Chevrolet Express 3/4?

    Mercedes Metris OR Chevrolet Express 3/4?

    Love my Metris - it it is not for everybody. I went from VW Eurovan to Metris. I would not have purchased Metris unless I found a deal. Just under 30k. Demo passenger version. Same price as my first Eurovan. Long time ago......but i kept my Eurovan 13 years - I plan the same for Metris cons - service - expensive and complicated and mandatory. . Even wiper blades are OEM only. And I find some things a definitely dealer only ....rear wheel drive - a snow vehicle it is not. Rear seats terribly heavy to move in and out. Pros- I love to drive it. Quiet. Space , comparable to my Eurovan and still adjusts well when I switch between equipment and passenger modes. I get my cart in upright - no problem. With follow cart, ez up etc... Brand perception- con. Lots of comments about making too much money because I drive a Mercedes. if if you want one. Car gurus is the site to search.. lots of them all over the US.

In the mean time , still looking for the right waterproof pot....lots of sites out there but finding the right spec is the challenge... and if i poke i a hole in the speaker case i do not like, i can always buy a new pelican--- all the electronics are in the lid. Of course- hoping i can keep it all water tight..... I j
