Hi All,

I am looking at purchasing the new Audio Technica 1800 wireless system, it is a dual reciever in camera mount form with lav transmitter and plug in transmitter.

The plug in can take a HiZ input at a 0dbu level but one of my mates is an audio tech and reckons most desks (well pro ones he said) output +4dbu so i would have problems with the level being too hot simply running a line into the plugin transmitter.

Any suggestions? I think this would be a great way o do it cause i could then have straight away sync sound to my camera and the room sound from my camera mounted RODE NTG2. In the past i took a tap into a MiniDisc recorder which worked pretty well but I didn't like not being able to monitor it and being able to check i was getting something good.

I use the system (AT1800) and for certain work when I DO plugin to the board, if needed, I pad it down-I have a couple of different attenuators that will give me up to about -40 plus the -6 on the transmitter and another -20 on the camera if needed and for those times I do pull a direct feed it works out just fine.
You friend is right. -6 isn't enough so get some pads or a converter LtoM an you should be fine.

This thread has really peaked my interest in trying a Senn e604 to capture reception audio (thanks Don Bloom and Rick Steele). My question is, can you use a Senn SKP100G2 plug-in transmitter with the e604? The SKP100G2 doesn't have phantom power; does the e604 need this?

Thanks for any help.

Kevin

the e604 is a dynamic mic and I used it with an Azden plugin and for a long time an Audio Technic series 1800 plugin so the short answer is no you don't need phantom.

Yes, this is the same butt plug I normally use - nothing else is required - just plug it into the e604 and go. I've also used the bodypack version of this transmitter along with an XLR to 1/4" mini jack cable... this works fine too.
