    Hi Matt, Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. We have just slapped our IT guy over the head and the error has been fixed. The price is still only £495+VAT. You can either call the office or order through our site.

    New Hawkwoods/Wendys Broadcast Power Distribution Rack

    Hi Matt, Sorry for the delay in response to your questions. We will be upgrading all current units and future units will come as standard with individually self resetting fused outputs. We will recall all units that we have sold and apply this upgrade free of charge.

    New Hawkwoods/Wendys Broadcast Power Distribution Rack

    Hi Tim, Your make good points but as I mentioned the 4 pin XLR port on the front can be relocated to the rear of the unit upon placing an order. Remote Audio do a unit called the Meon Life that has a few features that you suggest but at a cost of around $1500 in the States. Our unit is currently £495+VAT and we would like to keep the cost to the end user as low as possible. We will certainly look in to these suggestions though!

    New Hawkwoods/Wendys Broadcast Power Distribution Rack

    Hi JonG, It is designed as a 19" 1u rack unit and measures only 6" in depth. We could possibly incorporate a mains PSU into the unit but we wouldn't be able to make it smaller than what it is. Also the remote option would not be cost effective unfortunately.

    New Hawkwoods/Wendys Broadcast Power Distribution Rack

    Hi James, This is mainly to allow a quicker swap of batteries, it can also be relocated to the back of the unit upon ordering (may require some build time). Hi Shug, It is in stock and available to order now at £495+VAT per unit.

    Pimp my H2n

    Hi Tom, I have only just started reading this post today and I must say I am very eager to see how this turns out! I'm impressed. With out a doubt an awesome product name!
  9. Thanks for the heads up, We have a few duds laying around so I shall have to try it out with those first. If anything I may just stick to what I know and play it safe!
  10. When wireing a Sanken Cos 11 mic for example to a TA5F I often use a very small diameter of heat shrink on each of the wired pins to make sure the individual wires are more secure. Plus it makes the job look very neat anthough not necessary. I also find that when seperating the copper wire from the fibers that if I gently brush the tips of the wire to one side the fibers tend to spring back making them easier to seperate. Not tried burning the fibers off though so may have to try this out.

    New DPA lavs?

    We had our rep here demo the new DPA mics and they are actually fairly rugged indeed. The strain relief at the capsule end is reinforced from what I was told. You could pretty much stand on them and they would survive although I would not recommend you all try it..................

    Lectrosonics SRb power cable

    I have only ever used the Hawkwoods Dtap (PC3) connectors. Strain relief is just a simple small zip tie, does the job and it's quite a nice sturdy built connector.

    NP1 battery : alternative to IDX ?

    A lot of our customers here in the UK use Swit NP1 batteries (S-8056N). Voltage: 14.4V Capacity: 73Wh Max output power: 50W Max output current: 3.5A Over current protection: 10A Mount type: NP-1 Operation Temperature: 0 - 40 °C Net weight: Approx 0.45kg Dimensions: 185 × 72 × 25mm Not heard of any issues with them, they seem like real good NP1s but everyone has their own preference. We sell them for £98+VAT each.
