Anyone using a dual channel receiver in a UniSlot?

The new Varicam will - according to the instruction book - take a dual channel in-camera wireless mic receiver (to record two separate mono wireless mic signals) housed in the UniSlot slot. I can only find one, made by Lectrosonics in USA, and it can't be shipped here, for some reason.
Cheers.

Sony make one and I know that sennheiser also make one, they cost a lot though so it may be better just to use the ordinary receivers.

Thanks to John Willets for this:

There is no slot-in in the evolution range.

The slot-in receiver is the EK 3241 in the 3000 series - and you will need a matching 3000 or 5000 series transmitter as the noise reduction is different.

It was only the top-end pro. cameras that have the slot-in facility, so Sennheiser only did not include it on the semi-pro evolution series.

Sony unit is in the latest jigsaw catalogue but not on their web site.

Thanks.

We have an EK3041 already, in the camera. But, while our EK3041, and the EK3241 as far as I can work out, are both mono, the camera is capable of taking a dual channel signal via the Unislot.

I found the Sony version ((DWR-S01D), but haven't tried to find out yet whether it would fit a Panasonic camera - seems unlikely!
