this swiss-army 2-channel recorder/receiver/transmitter/(and more) was discussed in the Tentacle thread but is worthy of its own

$249
release date is currently August 2020 May 2021

PIP specs unclear

Wow this looks nice, would be a great recorder to go with an NBOX. Wish it also had some sort of digital in, but for that price it looks hard to beat.

yeah its basically a poor man's SPDR, $1000 less

while the SPDR had (non-bit accurate) AES in, and slightly higher mic-power, it could barely power 4061s or CMRs (reduced spec on both), so youre really not missing out on much

but we havent heard it yet. hopefully >120 dB EIN and a half-decent gain stage

$249 is a very aggressive price point.
Looking forward to real world testing and reviews shows up.

PIP is 3.3 V so no good for DPA 406x.  It would be nice to see some specs on the audio side; it concerns me that none of the usual things are listed.

On the plus side, it has a 2800 mAh battery, and an analog limiter.
DPA 4061 ~ Line Audio CM3 ~ Naiant X-Q ~ AT 853  |  Naiant PFAs ~ Shure FP24  |  Zoom F6 ~ Sony PCM-M10
MOTU M2 ~ KRK Rokit RP5 ~ Sennheiser HD 650 ~ Etymotic ER4XR

It is much more than a SPDR! As it has all that wireless capabilities as well.

Plus the SPDR can't be used as a TC box either in a pinch, the Deity can.

yes, much more, but not for 95% of people here who would be using it as a recorder only

yeah the SPDR was also rugged metal case

different market

you could say "our" market doesnt exist. any recorders we buy that are plastic are certainly a cost decision not a end-user design consideration

Anyone hear an update on this device? The link in the original post no longer works. And I couldn’t find any mention of it on their website.

"We are fully aware of the (huge) delay on the BP-TRX (caused by a variety of reasons) and personally I would have like to see that differently, obviously. Though, I can not give an exact date yet, we are REALLY (and this time, REALLY) close to launch. The moment I do have exact dates, worldwide, I will post it here.

Apologies for the inconvenience, we learned our lessons on announcing things way ahead of time."

From Deity on JW Soundgroup:

"Going live May 25th. The wait is over. 😀

 It has been a long long year full of numerous delays we realize. We suffered some the silicon shortage just like everyone else who now uses complex IC chips in their products. That's not counting all the other supply chain issues we had along with the global cargo shipping shortage. With tourism airplanes no longer flying as much cargo ships have been sold out in terms of securing a slot on the boat. We also ended up going back to the drawing board and added some more features that were requested from users. We know audio pros demand the highest quality and reliability from their gear.

 

We think on May 25th you won't be disappointed with the BP-TRX."

nice, cant wait to see the new features. definitely gave them some feedback early on about criteria important to our application, such as

full 5-9V on PIP and 3-wire
bit-accurate spdif in
P12 or P48 on minixlr
32-bit float
bluetooth remote

that was kind of "wish list" for future iterations, im sure many (most) are not compatible with the current hardware design, but who knows, we have to squeak, as we are such a small segment. most ADC and dsp chips are based on 32 bit fundamentally and its possible....

And now with a firmware supporting concurrent recording and transmitting at the same time even in the US firmware.
This after an patent agreement with Zaxcom!

got it friday but won't get a chance to run it until the 31st
I finally found how to set it to input STEREO and will run the input on 0dB when feeding an external mic preamp... there is only 1 meter for both channels
it seems as though you can charge or feed power thru the USB-c with a USB-a > USB-c cable it evens comes with adapters
I like the size and build of the unit and imagine I might give it a lot of use  :yack:
