Lectrosonics SMQV backward compatibility to Lectro 100 receiver

Hello, apologies if this has already been addressed.

I've used Sennheiser G2's and G3's in single transmitter, multiple camera/receiver scenarios quite a bit. I'm looking to upgrade to Lectrosonics but still use the same principle.

We will have a mix of small and big cameras, requiring different types of Lectrosonics receivers. On the big camera, I'll have either two 411a ENG receivers (via a mixer) or a dual channel slot-in receiver. On the small camera, it would probably be the small UCR100 receivers.

The key is redundancy, so I want the same Lectro SMQV transmitter to be able to feed 411, slot-in and 100 receivers. Ensuring the frequency block is the same, it looks like there's a compatibility mode that allows the 100 receiver to pick up the signal.

Has anyone used this mode and are there any drawbacks to it?

Thanks,
Mark

Sorry for the late reply. What you describe should work quite well, actually. The only drawback is that the 100 mode (compandor in the audio path) does not sound quite as good as the 400 mode (no compandor in the audio path).
