Nice review of the 4Minx...photos of all sides, battery slot and EXTENSIVE menus. Excellent description of setup when using the Soundfield SPS200 microphone.

LINK

This was a good in-depth review, but based on a very early machine.

There have been quite a few firmware updates since this review.

Oh - the point about shielding - there are metal sheets under the polymer top and bottom to give excellent shielding, while keeping the weight light.

There is also another review, done in December 2013, by Alistair McGhee - the PDF of this review is HERE.

Thanks for the additional link and for weighing in John!

4Minx owners....what bag are you using?

Strange size  260 x 75 x 195 mm (10.2” x 3.0” x 7.7”) either you get a bag that would hold two (Satchler P602)...and I'm not running Lectro's or a one that is not tall enough and a inch or so would be above the lip (Satchler SN617 & Orca 30).

It will fit a Sonicase if you remove a shelf!!  That probably doesn't help since they are hard to find.

Petrol Pegz2 - Perfect for the 4MinX - too bad they quit making them.  I do carry an assortment of "stuff" in the same bag, mics, batteries, interconnects, windscreens, etc...  Perfect bag for my needs.

You might hit a local camera shop and see if anything there strikes your fancy...

Try the Sachtler SN601 - it appears that it will give you what you need on the height of the bag with less size than the SN602.

For me...the Petrol ps602 is A bit large. I decided to try the ps617...seems that it may be more elegant....just able to get all my stuff into it comfortably  (4MinX - large K2 Maxoak battery & 2 sets of actives with delrin bar & mounts).

FYI...the Anton Bauer L batteries NP-F976 fit perfectly.

Have you tested the longevity of the Anton Bauer L batteries NP-F976 yet?  Nice to hear that they actually plug into the 4MinX without difficulty!

The NP-F976 were saying "UNCLE" after two sets (almost 3hrs) at DelFest. That said I'm not sure they were topped off, I thought the 4MinX would charge them with 12v on the Hirose input, so I just bought a wall charger and will test again. The Maxoak K2 185wh external ran for two days no problems. 7hrs recording and 9-10hrs on each day I'd guess (8w draw for 20 hrs = 160wh sounds about right).

Ran NOS on Milab and Gefell cardioids on the same stand for DelFest Thursday. I'm loving it.

The 4MinX will charge the Sony style batteries, but rather slowly in my experience, if you have the external power supply (AC) plugged in and feeding the 4MinX via the Hirose input.  Or if you're feeding the 4MinX via Hirose with an external battery.  For that reason I charge my Sony style batteries using an external charger.

Happy to hear that you're out and about with the 4MinX.  Health issues have severely cramped my recording activities for the moment.  I'm working on a comeback!

Health issues are the suck...yeah...I was in the Hospital the weekend before DelFest...had plans to go but missed Particle on Saturday...Monday they gave me the all clear and said I could go to work Tuesday...so that meant no reason not to go to DelFest Thursday in my book...  :yahoo:

AETA Audio Systems stops the production of 4MINX

 

Dear partners and users,

 for several months, we have been looking for a partnership to maintain the production of 4Minx, with an acceptable price level.

 Unfortunately, our research did not succeed, we had the choice between strongly increase the price of the 4Minx, or stop the production, it is this second solution which was retained.

 AETA thus stops definitively the manufacture of the 4Minx and the diffusion of new update.

 We would like to thank all the users of 4Minx, whose passion made our decision all the more difficult to take.

 We will continue to support you and ensure the maintenance and repairs of the 4Minx, so you can enjoy your device for as long as possible.

 We wish you, partner, distributors and users of 4MINX, all the success possible in your projects.

 The AETA team

Lame. Fuck companies that do this shit.

I'm  sorry to hear this but not surprised.  I'm sure that the new Sound Devices Mixpre series had something to do with this.
