  1. I think I remember reading about a person who repairs damaged COS11 mic heads. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
  2. Im considering upgrading to a Mini Cmit from an 8060. Now that it has been on the market for a few year, I would love to hear more about user's eperiences using the mini cmit as primary mic for documentary stile work? How often do you find humidity to really be a problem? Do you have another mini cmit as backup to swap out or are you swapping out for sennheisers?
  3. I've been trying to find a used MK8 for a while and came across the MK6. Anyone have any experience with the MK6 capsule? Seems like this would be a very versatile tool. Why did Schoeps discontinue these? https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/515467-REG/Schoeps_MK_6_MK6_Multi_Pattern_Capsule_for.html PS if anyone is selling an MK6 or MK8, get at me! Thanks.
  4. Im considering modding an HM to 5pin in order to use a stereo Pianissimo setup while only taking the pins of the mid mic for wireless. Does anyone have any pics to share of an HM or HMA before I go in for exploratory surgery?
  5. I assume you dont mean AES50, but if you want AES50 to USB this works Klark Teknik DN9630
  6. FWIW Betso confirms the Bowties do block DC but they recommend turning off the DC supplies if possible...
  7. Hi All, I have searched this website and have read both manuals and it is still unclear. While I wait for a response from Betso tech support, can anyone confirm if the Betso Bowties have DC voltage blocking circuitry built in? I want to know if I can use the Bowties with a Shure UA845 which supplies 12VDC on the BNC antenna inputs. I also have the older SNA600 which I know can be damaged when connected to a BNC jack that has a DC voltage across it's pins. Wondering if the same risk exists with the Betso Bowtie?
  8. Could this be made to work on only a single SM transmitter on set if there were 4-5 Lectros on set, etc? I suppose you would have to connect to each BT device individually? If New Endian made this seamless in RM and the device was properly miniaturized it is a clever solution.
  9. What is going on on those Sennheiser receivers? Modded with two output connectors?
  10. I wonder if the headphone output will be adequate for feeding a transmitter such as an SMQV.
  11. Hi all, if like me you have a Tentacle Sync version 1 with a weak battery, then like me, you probably are having a terrible time finding any information on how to change it. Most retailers I contacted did not have stock on this part, let alone know that the part was available from Tentacle. Its an easy fix. The battery replacement kit which comes with a battery, new plastic housing, velcro hook tape, super glue and rubber color bands. I was able to open mine without causing damage to the original housing, so I just glued it back together on the side of the case opposite the screw. Here are some pictures:
  12. I already own 3x Sennheiser sets and want to maximize their use after upgrading my talent wireless to Lectro. Yes, I could just buy new IEMs, but this is a DIY discussion in a DIY forum. I am looking for specific information about a mod that someone had already done, and I enjoy tinkering.
  13. Thank you both for the feedback. Seekai, depending on the complexity of the amplifier stage, it could be as simple as swapping out a few resistors or an op-amp to raise the gain of the amplifier at the output. Rick, you are correct, I was referring to the EK100 and I edited the OP. As for the output stage only outputting to left channel, I have considered that, and there could be a few solutions to this if a mod was to be attempted. Hard to say without having the PCB schematics of the EK100 and EK300 to compare. That's why I'm so keen on finding info on how this mod was attempted. If anyone has access to those schematics that would be awesome too!
  14. Regarding adding a pot to a Sennheiser G3 EK100. I stumbled on an article about someone who added a volume pot on a G3 EK100 receiver for use as IFB receiver. Apparently the SK100 boards are very similar to the EK300 IEM boards. Now I can't find this post or article anywhere. Does anyone have a link or info on this mod? Thanks!
  15. Does anyone have experience with using Gordon's whip build method on SMA modded Sennheiser G3s?
  16. I've been working with my used KMR81i in cold temperatures, -18, -20 Celsius with the wind chill. It's been performing wonderfully.
  17. Just picked up a KMR 81i from Trew Audio consignment. Can't wait to hear this thing.
  18. +1. Some real craftsmanship in this thread. Been thinking of doing this myself for my 552.
