Low level hiss in Sony URX-P2 Receiver

I am picking up a low level hiss from my Sony URX-P2 receiver. I have tried different channels but the problem continues. Please make any suggestions.

Hello Robert and welcome to the Cow Audio Forum.

Hiss is hard to track down. Compared to what?

First does the receiver output mic level? Is your camera set to mic level?

If you're using third-party mics and they aren't terminated properly, there will be hiss or distortion.

Are you used to larger diameter mics? Lave are noisier.

Regards,

Ty Ford

Ty, thanks for the response. I am using a sony transmitter with lav and a mic cube that came with the package. Is the URX-P2 fragile and prone to having a crystal knocked loose if you drop it?
I get the low level his on the lav and a rode shotgun mic. thanks

Robert,

I don't have hands-on experience with that system. Perhaps someone else here may.

Dropping is usually not good.

Again, sure you're not feeding a mic level into a line level input and having to crank it way up?

That'd cause hiss.

Regards,

Ty Ford

Did you ever track down the source of your hiss?

I'm having this problem:

There was a problem in the receiver. I returned the unit which was still under warranty to Sony. They replaced it with a brand new one.
