  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, 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, recorded directly from the output of the M2R...It sounds like a sort of audible quantization noise...its most obvious around 2:09 in the attached clip. Any thoughts/insight would be most welcome! B Lectro_Test_Record_Digital.wav
  3. 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,
  4. 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...?
  5. 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. Another really nice feature is that the scan-the-band and sync feature is enabled by a dedicated button, rather than having to dig through the menus. No word so far if they are coming out with a new two channel receiver. Here's a video that shows some alternate views that the currently released press photos don't:
  6. 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 Adam
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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?
  10. 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 well as the present state of things. How many ultrasound related problems actually come up these days? What types of common sources are there, and how could they be dealt with?
  11. Hi Guys, what are the legal wireless frequencies in France please?
  12. 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?
  13. 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 a dedicated 3 person RF team to manage. Great job to everyone who contributed to this work of art! It even got me to like JT's music a little bit (:
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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 anyone comment on the indie c-stand application for radios without removable antennas? Does the physics work? I don't see much use for it on the TX for narrative stuff, but would this also apply to placing RX from the cart on the c-stand? I get how height helps with transmission range, but I'm wondering more about the possible amplifying benefits of any tall metal pole if I place the RX or TX close to the center or bottom of a c-stand. Thanks for the help!
  17. 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!
  18. 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.
  19. 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 that the src is here? I am mostly in the commercial and corporate market, with the occasional narrative work. I rarely need more than 2/3 wireless channels plus boom. I use a g3 as a wireless cam hop. Hope you can help! Thank you in advance.
  20. 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?
  21. 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
  22. 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? Most of the use will be in San Francisco and occasionally in Philadelphia. It appears that both of those areas require Freq Block A-1? Are there any other components that are typically required that I didn't list? I can't afford the top end systems from Zaxcom or Lectrosonics right now, but I also don't want something that the industry would consider an amateur level. So Prosumer I guess. I really hope there's a system from Sweetwater that someone could recommend and vouch for so I could buy it through their financing program. https://www.sweetwater.com/c994--Lavalier_Wireless_Systems/high2low Thanks! David
  23. Hey everyone, A seller has a used Lectrosonics SRB receiver in block 21 - I'm wondering if anyone has experience with this block in Portland, OR? Is it clear? Thanks! jamie
  24. Hello! How do people feel about the range that they get off the zaxcom units? Is 50/75 mw good enough compared to lectros 100/250?. I really need don't like to fight to get range in my wireless. I know its all digital but some zaxcom units I have used in the past didn't impress me with there range. Maybe I was using their older models... Also wondering about the IFB's and using them for camera hops. I'm curious about the range of them and the audio quality, are then better than the lectro ifb's?
  25. So I noticed that the Rodelink wireless system has an option to power the unit through a micro usb cable instead of batteries. I've got a BDS system but unfortunately no one (including Rode) sells a micro usb to barrel DC cable. Anyone have any success making one? I tried but can't seem to get a working one.
