    Sound Devices Wireless (rebranded Audio Ltd)

    I have spoken with Audio Ltd and can confirm that this is false, I think the author of the article may have got his wires crossed. Although owned by Sound Devices Audio Ltd will still operate as a seperate entity under their own brand for the forseable future. Never say never on joint future developments though.

    Viviana or Ursa?

    You would be perfectly fine with the small pouch. The only difference between the pouch sizes is that the large is pouch is deeper to accomodate taller transmitters. As Constantin mentions, if the transmitter feels loose OR if the person wearing the device will be doing someting quite physical such as jumping around then you may need to use the URSA Pouch Protectors which come as a pack of four.

    Viviana or Ursa?

    We have looked at the Viviana straps and compared them to the URSA straps. The material used in both is exactly the same and is also cut to the same thickness and width almost like they came out of the same factory. The only difference between the two is the that Viviana have the extra cable pocket and they are shaped differently at the ends. We only supply URSA straps.

    Sound Devices acquires Audio, wow!

    The Zaxcom pattent is only valid in the US and the A10 transmitters shipped there will have the feature disabled via firmware. Audio Ltd will still opperate as Audio Ltd on UK soil and be kept as a seperate entity. As the products we are shipping to our customers here in the UK have the record feature enabled I would assume that the pattent is still un-enforcable against them and Audio Ltd have not informed us otherwise for anywhere else in Europe either. There is nothing stopping anyone flying abroad to buy them ouside of the US with the record feature though and bringing them back. Shure Distribution used to be the distributor of Sound Devices but that has now been taken over by Audio Ltd, nothing else in regards to resellers has changed since. As far as I am aware all UK Sound Devices repairs have to still be shipped to Germany for the service though but I am curious if they will now be providing services and repairs on Audio Ltd products.

    Light weight audio cable in various jacket colors

    Hi Grant, What lengths are you going with the cable??
  11. NathanWBS


    The Rycote WS4 Windshield (010604) is 440mm in length and is sold as part of a kit along with the Rycote Windjammer WJ4 (021504) which is 500mm in length. Usually Rycote have small labels inside the Windjammers that tell you the model such as WJ3, WJ4 etc. You should be able to use this information to work out which Rycote Windshield it is suitable for.

    Lavalier outer jacket repair

    We typically use heat shrink on most lav mics that have this issue, we only have the black varient but here is the link to the grey version which might blend in a little better: http://cpc.farnell.com/pro-power/13634gry/heatshrink-2-1-grey-2-40mm-100m/dp/CB10994 The general order code is 13634 for the black, it may be avilable in other colours than just black and grey if you look around.

    NEW SMWB and SMDWB Lectrosonic units Announced..

    In regards to a future firmware update that would allow the unit to transmit and record at the same time, I have been told that this would not be physically possible and due to the patent wont happen. Even in other territories such as the EU this is the same case.

    NEW SMWB and SMDWB Lectrosonic units Announced..

    As Patrick Southern has stated, I can also verify that I have been told that these do not infringe on any patent.

    Any experience with the new Audio Ltd 1010 (renamed A10)

    The Audio 1010 system is offically discontinued and replaced by the A10 system. The A10 system although in the same form factor as the 1010 system it has received many improvments so I guess you can say it is a different beast. We are expecting to receive a demo unit some time in the next month or so. Here is a link to Audio Ltd's web page showing a simple 1010 vs A10 comparison: http://audioltd.com/a10/a10-digital-versus-1010-system/
