Wyatt Tuzo Posted January 23, 2022 Report Share Posted January 23, 2022 So... I started my transition into the Axient Digital line earlier last year. For months I had been sitting on a number of transmitters, in the hopes of a receiver solution that would suit the layout of my cart. I live and work in New York, and thus I've always valued having as mobile, and lightweight a cart as I can get away with, and the full-sized Shure rack receivers just weren't going to work with my setup. Further considerations of mine were: The hope for DANTE integration, and a relatively high channel density (higher than Shure's AD4Q, at least). When the ADX5D was announced, I figured all of my problems would be solved by pairing these with the Audio Ltd (now Sound Devices) A10 Rack. Unfortunately, the Shure receivers were just a bit too physically broad for the A10's SMA antenna spacing. Inspired by a recent Facebook discussion on the Axient Users Group, I decided to look into modding an A10 Rack to accommodate the ADX5D. I thought I'd share my process in the event anyone is curious... I'm going to spread this out over a couple of separate posts below. Please know that this modification is not for the faint of heart. I feel pretty confident working with electronics, and I was still triple and quadruple checking everything as I went. While this may present as a how-to, I am not looking to encourage anyone to try this for themselves. I accept no responsibility for your choice (should you attempt this), and you will most certainly void your warranty. Here goes... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
