Let’s assume a brand new Lectro SMQV + COS11D start working in ideal conditions (indoors, temp / humidity humane levels, walking around rather than running and jumping) - what is the expected lifespan? When is a “reasonable” time before it should have to get serviced? I realize the warrantee is only what, a year? But to me that is not at all an indicator of how long these units should function in ideal conditions. So, what’s the average life of a transmitter, a COS11, or a Comtek PR216? Sound dept. L & Ds are pretty much *never* caused by sound dept.; it’s who actually uses the gear. Actors, village idiots, PAs, ACs, it’s everyone but us. So it really chafes when a production wants to deny an L&D on the basis of “normal wear and tear.” In my opinion, the moment these pieces are handed off, normal wear and tear goes out the window. The sound dept rarely drops things, and never yanks a mic cable. Sigh. You see the position I’m in.
