but a consistent hiss at that.
Are you guys jacking in to the handle jacks or the jack on top of the DC power input?

I'm using the headphone outputs on the rear of the handle. The jack you're talking about is a line output, and marked as such.

Well, that line output sure sounds better than that stupid headphone output! I think I'm gonna jam candle wax into those worthless headphone jacks--Or maybe use them as tooth pick storage receptacles!

Good Idea!

I'm going to whittle down 2 birthday candles and jam them in there. ;)

Agreed the best way around this is a simple headphone preamp which has been designed for the job, take the line out of the camera into device and your away.

My sound recordist has not had a problem taking the line out of the cam for his cam return input to the sound desk.

They def have skimped on the headphone amp but belive the problem lies at the input stage.

We use a sound devices 302 mixer and when setting up the camera (HD 101e) the pots are up very high to achieve good levels for the Avid. When we shoot on the digi beta and use the test tone out of the mixer at the same levels, the pots are hardly working at all.

I guess for a cam under 10k you need to cut costs some where ( the biggest being the standard lense ) Our pics really came alive when we bought the 13x fugi lense

Why do you need a headphone preamp?
Just jack into the line out! Sounds good! Huh?

Volume control maybe, unless there is a feature i'm unaware of. I myself have sensitive ears, where my soundo needs it cranked up (scary i know)

I just finished a studio shoot monitoring with the headphones in the line out.

what a difference that made.

I'm never using the headphone outputs again.
