    Where is your mic receiver?

    Just curious where you mount or keep the receiver for a wireless mic. Is it ok to mount in a case that you put under a table. I'm not sure if that interferes with the signal

    Mine is mounted in the top space of my rolling rack, which sits under my table. Which is often behind a facade. No issues behind or in front. I'm using a dual mic Gemini UHF receiver.

    In my cases, right underneath my DDJ-S1, or MC 6000...snug as a bug in a rug.
    Thanks!

    A general rule for RF receivers (at least their antennas)is ...

    They will work better up in the air than down on the deck. They work better at 4 feet than at 1 foot from the ground, so bottom space in a rack is the worst possible place. The best possible position is usually 6-8 feet up in the air and with the antennas split at least 3 feet apart (which is why you see the pros use remote antennas). Remote antennas, when used properly, probably increase the reliability of your wireless times 3 (OR WAY MORE)

    They should not be near any other transmitters (including wireless DMX or wi-fi from a lap top, etc.). Even though the frequencies may be very far apart, being close is like the difference between normal speech at a distance of 4 feet as compared to 1 inch from your ear where it now becomes screaming.

    Metal cases or tables will greatly block your signal, so that should be avoided at all costs.

    Brian can you post your S1 lineup. I have contacted Odyssey 7 times about a custom case, including phone calls, and I never received a call back.

    Modesty & sincerity maybe the best to measure of a DJ, rather than what price they are charging.
