OK I'm changing my opinions lol.

- I'm now used to the Beta 87a's and I can work with them.- I'm still happy with SM58's and SM86's, but prefer 86's if given the choice of the three.- I'm now disliking the e835, very boxy sounding/muddy imo, could be just me.
So is the e935 that much different? Is it like the Beta58a to the SM58?Anyone got opinions with e865 also?

SM86's are a great option.

The 935 is much different (better) than the 835.  Newer technology.  Overall my favorite general purpose dynamic mic.

865 needs some low-mid EQ cuts, and the HF isn't as crystal clear as newer/higher cost mics.  With EQ it's still a good mic, but I'd rather use SM86.

Also didn't recognize logo, looks like a dual 6.5" or so plus horn.  The grill shape reminds me of the Community CPL line.

Even on it's best day that stand in the video was never going to fully support a mic at the end of the fully extended boom at or close to a 90 degree angle.
That stand was a Radio Shack special.
Whatever you end up with I would suggest making the deep investment into a 12 inch flexible extension to give you the option of coming in over the shoulder like many drummers do

No, they do not.
(in a rather simplistic way)
In a perfect world, the magnets on all the drivers would line up with each other, and no time correction would be needed.
In the real world, you have positional differences, path length differences (especially with bass horns) and these are where the corrections are needed.
"speed" of any frequency is exactly the same.

ONLY IF the "real world" does not have any crossovers involved, and the phase angle of the drivers is the same.

Since neither of these exists, there will be different amount of delay times, based on more physical and electrical issues

It is a "nice idea" to physically line them up, but in REALITY, that never happens.

The HF will always be behind the lower freq bands in time-physically, because the lower band have more "delay" built into the drivers and the electonics

To be effective, a "full featured" gate also requires frequency filters on the threshold.

The differences between "downward expansion" and "noise gate" can become semantic, like the difference between "compression" and "limiting".
first I have also provided adjustable depth on downward expanders but agree too many controls can be counter productive (KISS).  FWIW premium full feature gates can also add some look-ahead delay/anticipation, to open more cleanly.


I suspect these days with more such dynamics being performed inside the digital domain there is no significant cost difference between smooth downward expansion and hard noise gating, perhaps some slight processor overhead but that is surely inexpensive. So differences are perhaps in what they call them... ::)

That said, my little rant is about ear buds.  Using the $2-$10 ear buds that come with these systems isn't a good way to evaluate IEMs in general.  Using ear buds that come with your phone is also bad.  Good IEM experiences start with a good seal between the ear canal and bud.  I have small ear canals and use the memory foam "comply" tips if I can leave them in, and modify the smallest triple flange silicone rubber tip if I have to remove them often.  Users with really big ear canals may need special measures or custom molds.

Molds are expensive at first but if a player decides on IEMs, it's the way to go.

I'm using Westone 3 armature buds...
I concur.. been down the IEM route for the lasts 7+ yrs.. from all kinds of wired to various wireless systems (including Carvin, shure and Senn) and a variety of cheap to not-so-cheap buds.
After much ado, and a WHOLE LOT of expense to get there - I'm VERY happy with my [custom] 1964 A8's and a Senn G3 IEM rig.

I have small canals too, and before an audiologist informed me of my "condition" had tried pretty much EVERY tip I could get my hands on to see if the seal would remain when I turned my head or opened my mouth.  Nothing worked.  I ended up going the custom route.
Well worth the $$ IMHO, when you're doing 80+ gigs a year.  Easy set up.. Easy to use.  We run our own IEM rig, so it's basically plug-n-play.

That said... IF universal fit work for you, then go that [cheaper] route, but I would still recommend triple drivers (or better). They will provide better audio separation, clarity and reduce the ear fatigue that is inherent in the single-driver buds included with the typical IEM system.
If one stays with IEM's, then an investment in custom would be warranted.

I don't recognize the logo, I echo Craig in needing more specs. General enclosure size or driver size would go a long way.

It seems that Lab Gruppen will only sell parts to 'authorized service centers'.  Anyone on the forum have access to the LG parts stream that could supply a set of output binding posts for a Lab IPD 1200?

With active speakers all bets are off. Especially with FIR filering , 48k against 96k etc. Not only that, but tuning freq, port length also play a big part in this. So it might be better to invert the polarity of the bass or the top instead of/combined with delaying one or the other.
