  1. Yeah Im assuming this is based off an already discounted price for the Zaxcom. The list price of the A20 is pretty close to a UK listing of the Zaxcom(not sure if this is listed at list price or discounted on this side). That's all I can say for now.
  2. Can't 100% verify yet but looking at UK prices online for the Zaxcom ZMT4 I believe the A20 might be on par if not a little cheaper. One thing to note is that you won't need any other transmitters or receivers on different frequencies as the A20 covers all across the the A10 receiver.
  3. Yes, going forward I believe there will be a rebranding so all is under the same flag.
  4. It does but the US version has the feature disabled. It has 64gb built in recording memory. There is an 8 way charger for these new mini transmitters as well as USB C timecode cables available.

    The Smyles Comm-Biner is a fantastic option.
  6. Hi Larry, Quite possibly as chrismedr mentions a UK only item but after a quick search it appears that there are far fewer choices in general for the NP-50 batteries on the US Amazon. We find many couriers can get a little twitchy when you mention shipping batteries. Where possible we will ask our battery suppliers about drop shipping directly to our international customers as they are already set up to do so.
  7. For what it is worth, due to issues with shipping internationally we supply and recommend to our customers the Ex-Pro High Power Plus+ NP-50 lithium-ion batteries. They are readily available on Amazon for around £10 to £15 and so far have had no issues.
  8. Hi Jazzbo, Please see this link: https://www.apwpt.org/downloads/handoutfrequencies2019.pdf Block 25 is 640.000MHz - 665.500MHz Block 26 is 665.600MHz - 691.100MHz Hope it helps.
  9. The microdot itself can't be repaired but it can be replaced in most cases, we do this often. Most of our customers tend to end up getting the mics hardwired instead as it is cheaper to repair and in some cases more reliable than the microdot connector. I think the reason they have said no in this case is because of the design of the mic itself which is unfortunate. The price of the replacement microdot connector is around £20+VAT here in the UK.
  10. Here in the UK at least, it is a two year warranty on the DPA lavalier microphones. It's always worth contacting your local DPA dealer/distributor with the serial number of the microphone before throwing it away, they will be able to tell you if it is still covered or not. We get a few capsule issues here and there and usually it will be replaced so long as it is not obvious physical damage. Same with the microdot connectors. We will repair microdot connectors (that are not covered under warranty) in house for £20+VAT plus shipping but in most cases due to how fragile the microdot can be we find most of our customers are now getting the microphones hard-wired instead with a different choice of connector.
  11. URSA make a product called Mini Foamies which are designed for this in mind. They are available in black and white.
  12. Hi Mano, From what we know here at Wendy's it could be one of two things or both: It might depend on the age of your Sankens as the Sanken COS11D mics have better RF shielding than the older Sanken COS11 mics. You will need to check to see if you have the 'D' variant to verify. The shield which goes to pin one in the 3 pin Lemo has possibly not been grounded to the shell. It is not required but it does help a lot. We typically wire a Sanken COS11 by splitting the center shield in half and putting half with white to pin 1 and black to pin 3. The other half we make sure is in contact with the shell of the Lemo. Hope this helps. -Nathan
  13. Will the Scorpio or 833 work with the Sound Devices CL-12 Linear Fader Controller? Although the CL-12 was originally designed for 6-Series field mixers and features an old protocol that is incompatible with the Scorpio’s or 833's open MCU, we are pleased to announce that we have achieved cross-compatibility. The Scorpio will support the CL-12, in addition to third party MCU controllers, in a future firmware update. Follow us on our social accounts or register your product to be updated when this firmware is available. My setup requires more AES inputs than the 4 channels the Scorpio or 833 allows, how can I use more AES sources? An accessory that will allow for up to 8 additional channels of AES (4 AES pairs) is in development. Stay tuned for future updates. Will you make a dedicated control surface designed specifically for the new 833 and Scorpio? Yes. We are currently developing a bespoke control surface to interface with the 833 and Scorpio. Follow us on our social accounts or register your product to be updated when this control surface is available. You can visit the full FAQ pages at the following links: Scorpio https://www.sounddevices.com/scorpio-faq/ 833 https://www.sounddevices.com/833-faq/
  14. Those are the specs for a Sanken COS-11D with the P48 XLR barrel. Regards, Nathan.
