There are a lot of CRs in Houston who prefer the mp3, but they will still request the audio tape as well just as a back up. There are also CRs who do not use the mp3s, but I am unclear as to why they do not take advantage of the technology. I have never had a problem with CRs plugging into my mixer, but there is not a lot of reporters who have requested it. I would think that it would help them because of the audio boost, and I always offer the service, but most of them do not want to hook up. I have enjoyed the CSRnation, and I believe it will be good for the industry.
