  1. Well done Ken I think this is a brilliant idea and as a cart mixer and not bag mixer I see so many uses incorporating it into a cart so it can be released and used as a breakaway rig. You could have your backup recorder in it and use on a smaller cart or on an insert vehicle. Its not just a bag rig IMO. It looks beautifully made and I think the price is fair as having built and purchased a few carts and rigs etc the best engineered ones always cost more. I look forward to purchasing one when they are released. What size would you recommend for a Nomad/RX12 system? Thanks T
  2. The agent here in NZ has talked to Phonak about increasing the gain so this is more ammo to get it done. Will definitely try the amp. One thing I noticed with the in ear piece was ear wax can decrease the fidelity and level and its difficult to see unless you take off the green plastic cap. Easy to change but it took me a while to find. Thats definitely a job for the utility eeeeek
  3. The Repeater does help in certain situations but I found the best way was to remote the base station close to set. I am using them on large sets and the range really suffers. On a capture stage with no physical barriers it is very good with a solid signal on just the whip. I still think there is a lack of gain as I run my aux outs of my sonosax mixer at max and the base station on max too and its just loud enough. I also use the older style hearing aid type earpiece that has a volume control and they are better. I use a 26800mah power bank and I have not needed to charge it after several
  4. HI Lids - By process of elimination try the following. Contact the recordists and ask what wireless systems they are using. The distortion maybe in the transmitter or even microphone or simply too hot If it is zaxcom wireless then check the SD card recording against the iso track on the recorder to see if there are differences. Most Recordists would have their contact details on their sound report. They would be able to answer many questions and probably remember the scenes in question. Without confirming all of the equipment used on the scene's
  5. Great review Rado and I especially like this quote. I too am keen to see a small mix surface and one that will also work with the Deva 24 when a breakaway option is needed. Great to hear about the MRX 214 as well it just gets better. Thanks Tony
  6. I find the freq presets a great function and you shouldn't need to change them often unless you always re freq your wireless. The URX100 has been an amazing addition to my kit and the ability for my crew to listen to individual TRX's is a genuine improvement to our daily workflow. They sound amazing and the walkie interface is a permanent set up on the sound cart. I used to use Lectro R1 a's with a seperate lectro xmitter and referee switch for my crew as a monitor and talk back to me. That was a lot of hardware, it worked but nowhere near as well as the URX which is purpose built
  7. Hi Gene, i have searched the sound guys solutions website and cannot find this. Tony
  8. Hi, Do you have the model number of these please/ io cannot find the adapter part on the neutrek website thanks tony
  9. classy, i must look at those
  10. They look great what does the other end look like?
  11. its a 743 and there doesn't seem to be an elegant solution that i have seen
  12. Hi, has anyone found a good solution for securing a zmt743 to the boom. I have a home made velcro option but it is hard to get on and off to change batteries. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks Tony
  13. I am using two of these on a movie for my crew. I can confirm the range is incredible and so is the audio quality. The presets are a fantastic feature and as mentioned in the video my utility uses this function to check radio mics at trailer park before the actors come to set. A little trick i do is because i dont like the sound of a walkie with the PTT thumps you sometimes get on transmit i eq'd the input on my deva 24 to a very narrow freq band and removed these and it also made it easier to understand in noisy environments. Great piece of kit. TJ
  14. That looks great Rado. Do they have them for the DPA 6060 yet? Tony
  15. Sorry Vale i meant an external GUI like a windows or mac iPad. I have one for my nomad and am hoping that it it is just a plug and play works well. Tony
