I'm in Orange County, CA. Where are you shipping from? I was thinking, if you're close by, maybe i could drive over and pick it up.
I'm just starting getting a bit of quality audio gear. Gradually building up my equipment. Do you find that three inputs usually suffice for remote field shoots? I think so, but I don't know what I don't know.
I'd also appreciate any details that might be available as you may be so inclined. A phone call would be great, also.
