  1. Hey guys, looking at this 4 channel receiver for use in cart and bag. The price point is the same as buying 2 SRC’s but it has way more functionality than SRC’s. Anyone tested it? I would be using it with existing smv’s and smqv’s I would also loop thru antennas with existing venue on the cart. thoughts?
  2. Hi all, for people wanting to avoid long coaxial cable the radio over fiber technology can be considered. The AFR-250S is small as a AS-122, got a 1.3" OLED display to monitor RF power, optical power. More informations on our website! https://www.bs-rf.com/en/products/fiber-optic-rf-offset/reception/ You can drop a mail to get more informations. Christian.

  4. Greetings everyone, I hope you’re all staying safe and healthy during these difficult times, now on to my topic. I’m hoping to be working on a 10-day feature in May or June, which will help alleviate a few bills and possibly, upgrade my wireless. Though Chicago, as well as the rest of the country is mostly using Lectrosonics, I’m considering doing something different. I’m looking into possibly getting the MCR 42 S/S2 and MTP40S units from Wisycom. Though I don’t have neither a Sound Devices 6, 7, nor 8 series, I wanted to know if anyone is using these with a Zoom F8. Is the fact th
  5. Hi, I recently got a new Lectrosonics M2R/M2T combo to use as in-ear monitors. I noticed a great deal of noise artifacts while using the system...It was being fed a stereo mix from a digital mixer... After scanning for optimal RF signal strength, following the signal chain, troubleshooting any phase/power issues, I decided to swap the digital mixer out for an analog one, and the noise appeared to go away. Once the mixer was put back into the system, the noise came back... Has anyone else ever experienced this? I've attached a sample of the sound,
  6. Hi all, this is Christian from BSRF. It seems the AS-122 has a small dude called AS-62! And he's ready to rock despite his small form factor. Now it comes with a dual step RF peak on each input. More informations on our website: www.bs-rf.com Or contact us at contact@bs-rf.com. Sincerely,
  7. Greetings Legends of Sound, Does anyone have any real world experience of the Sony digital radio mic system? I'm interested in the portable dual rx and belt pack tx's - I hate the old Sony systems but have been told the new stuff is impressive. Any one used it in anger? ? Range? Battery life? Remote control ? Sound quality?? Rf stability...?
  8. Sony has done a small re-vamp of their UWP wireless system at NAB. The main emphasis seems to be on about a 20% size reduction. There is a new (smaller) smart hotshoe adaptor for the receiver, and one option seems to be the ability to flip a switch on it and decide whether it outputs analogue audio or digital audio through the hotsoe. They will be doing an update to their Z280 camera (which has two such "smart" hotshoes), and I would assume that will enable the digital throughput aspect. The update will also allow camerapeople to see signal strength and receiver info in their viewfinder.
  9. Hey! Who is using this product? https://ktekpro.com/product/ksqd1-k-tek-squid-universal-mount/ Has everyone tested it with their favourite transmitters? I see a Zaxcom in the photos, but what about Lectro HMA, Sennheiser SKP, etc? Insert photos if you have them. I haven't gone wireless on the boom yet but this seems like a great solution to keep the weight (and the controls) at the operator's end of the pole rather than the microphone end. Is it better and/or more versatile more than the sidekick transmitter module by K-tek? cheers Ada
  10. Hey everyone! Wanted to get some opinions on servo vs standard lectrosonics wiring, which has always been a little grey for me. I realize that if I get servo, I wont be able to use the lav on an older style lectro transmitter. On a cos 11, the servo used three wires, opposed to the standard wiring which uses 2? I could have this backwards... Anyway, a word from the field is what I am looking for, is there a noticeable noise floor and overload buffer difference between the two? Thanks! Jbob
  11. Hey Everyone, just wanted to let you know that I successfully combined a Zaxcom and WisyCom Sytem together in one Antennatree. I used the Antenna output of the PSC SixPack to feed the MicPlexer2 and from there on went to 2 digital Dual Channel Zaxcom Recievers and one WisyCom analog Dual Channel Reciever. I wasn´t shure if that System would work or if I would get in trouble especially with the WisyCom Reciever beeing fed by the MicPlexer2. But so far everything seems to work fine without any RF loss. cheerz Urs
  12. I am running two Lectro SMV's at 100mW and they are draining batteries. I'm getting an hour or less out of a single AA lithium battery. This is getting expensive and getting worse. The units are probably 5/6 years old and that paste on the threads has long gone. Any ideas as to what is happening? I worked with someone else's gear recently and they were having the same issue. I'm also getting audio (not frequency) dropouts on the SRb receiver. Is it related? Thoughts? Solutions?
  13. https://www.wired.com/story/ultrasonic-signals-wild-west-of-wireless-tech/ I've been thinking about ultrasound a lot lately. Thanks to information on the forum, I've found out that some companders on analog wireless devices may choke out the signal you actually want when dealing with ultrasound due to HF boosts in the system. The noise from an induction stove or an ultrasound motion detector are known examples. Apparently ultrasound is becoming more commonly used in IoT-devices for wake-up signals and inter-device communication in household stuff, so I'm quite curious about the future as we
  14. Hi Guys, what are the legal wireless frequencies in France please?
  15. I'm about to jump onto the DPA bandwagon. This going into my first wireless kit (only two at first), been renting before and used the 4061s. I'm debating with between buying the Slims and 60s. Which ones see more action or are better all arounders for mostly narrative work for you guys? And also if it's the 60s, the 60 or 61?
  16. Shout out to the astounding (and huge) production sound team who achieved an amazing feat on Justin Timberlake's new music video for "Say Something"! This marvel was filmed in one take, and on the first try, featuring a live performance with a 60 person choir and about 20 other various musicians (among a 200 person crew), facilitated by top-notch production sound. I'm curious if anyone on the 6+ person sound team is on this forum and would be interested in talking about all the coordination required to pull this off, especially the wrangling of all the wireless gear, which apparently required
  17. Hey Guys, what do I need to utilise Shark Fin Antennas from my bag/cart? I run 3 Micron Explorers and want to increase the range. I've seen passive and active antennas and also distribution units. I need a simple straightforward solution please. P.
  18. Hey Guys, I'm considering an upgrade of my wireless kit. I started with Sennheiser G3s and now run 3 Micron Explorers which have limiters. I use the G3s for headphone sends and wireless hops. I like the look of the Lectrosonics systems but they are soooooo expensive. What would I gain by upgrading? I work on a variety of shoots including Film, TV and corporate. Would love all your thoughts.
  19. Mark Edward Lewis has a location sound class where he talks about using a mic stand or c-stand to act like a large antenna for a TX to extend it's range. He started off by mentioning how placing a key fob to your head extends the range of the clicker to your car. Through some googling this appears to be a real thing that does work. Some articles say any jug of water would do the same thing because of dielectric properties of water, although i'm not sure I want to keep water too close to my equipment. I know there are plenty of shark fin style antennas that can connect to your radios, but can a
  20. Hi guys, Returned home from a shoot the other night and realized that the rubber/vinyl 'tip' of one of my Sony UWP-D transmitters (UTX-b03) was missing. (see pics) The internal wire of the antenna is exposed, however repeated tests have shown there doesn't seem to be any detrimental effect at all (yet) - on range or audio quality. Can I just add any tip/cover to the antenna or do I have to replace the entire antenna? Hope you can help - thanks in advance!
  21. What's the average percentage for your lavs that you don't get clothes rustle/noise, drop outs or hits, etc on your lavs? I'd say about 40-50% of the time I lav someone it's clean without any really bad rustle. Sometimes I have no issues at all when I get the placement just right with cotton shirts, other times I'd assume it's completely useless. I do narrative work where I have to hid the mics almost 90% if I can't hide it in plain sight.
  22. Hi all, So I’m finally looking to upgrade my multiple Sony UWP systems to lectrosonics, and am particularly looking at the ar dual receiver systems, mostly to save space in my small orca bag and keep my rig pretty mobile. I’d like to know the main differences/advantages of the src over the srb or even the sra. I’m aware it has trackinh front end filters similar to the 411s, as well as smart sync infrared syncing, but what about audio quality and range? I can pick up used srb systems for substatially cheaper than src. Will these still be a good purchase now
  23. I have a Sennheiser G3 mounted and attached to a Sony A7s on a Movi. The hop is mounted to one of the movi arms. Levels sound good when movi is off but as soon as the movi is powered up there is a major hum/buzz and digital noise. I'm hearing that the A7s just has bad sheilding but any suggestions for keeping the feed clean? i've also noticed when you hover your hand over the G3 face, you will hear interference. What's that about?
  24. I've been looking to buy an Audio LtD RK2 rack for two 2020 receivers. Preferably in the 512 - 524 MHz range. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks, Tom Nelson CAS
  25. I've done a lot of homework, but the complexities of the wireless lavalier world aren't making complete sense to me yet. Any advice and/or education would be appreciated... I have a recorder/mixer, a shotgun mic with all the accessories, and a bag. This will mainly be used for indoor talking head film commercials, and the occasional indie film. Am I correct for everyone you want to wire up will require a Receiver, Bodypack Transmitter, and a Lavalier Microphone? The R & T are just tonally neutral communication devices, and the lav mic dictates the quality and character of the sound?
