    Zoom F8n.

    Everything F8 is discontinued in B&H, by the way. Only F8n.

    Zoom F8n.

    I thought the white screen of death was affecting only early serials! What do you have that needs the +4 output? I am trying to find a reason that I will need that in the future. The F8n is obviously a more complete and well rounded machine, but currently there is a 700 to 1200euros price difference in Europe, one has to consider the plus and the minuses. Even when the F8n stabilizes just around 1000euros (on a year? 6months?), the asking price of 700euros for a perfectly capable 8-XLR in recorder is quite tempting. Especially if you consider that the most important parts of such a machine, the pre amps and limiters, seem to be exactly the same.

    So..you could use an F8 for that as well, couldn't you?

    start up gear for field recording

    @The Immoral Mr Teas sorry but I am not familiar with those older mics, as I see it, they are the predecessors of this newer series! The other similar AT microphone is the cheaper 8022, but in my opinion the 4025 worths its money difference as it is something different than the usual small diaphragm capsules that we most use for stereo techniques. Very interesting propositions about the Micro Boom Pole, I have the Micro for a small and easy to carry design, and the Pro, which is a disappointment really, they took the good ol' Rycote design and they screwed it big time!

    Sanken Cs-M1 new mike

    I do, a little, but if it works, then it works. I would like to hear a bit more real experiences, especially for interferences (if I am using the right word), humid environments and the such. @IronFilm 416 stays! It is a staple in my sound engineering life for far too long! @Phil D kinda off topic, but do you know how this Bubblebee spacer compares to BBG? Really interesting and convinient design, but I have never seen one, or know anyone that have one. The XS could fit my Audixes too..

    Zoom F8n.

    So, in the F8 you can't have a line input at all? And in the output, the F8 is missing the +4db option.

    Sanken Cs-M1 new mike

    Yeah, @Eric Toline just disturbed our sleep until we all get one and try it! MKH 50 costs 1600euros here, and that caused me to pause, until I consider all my options. To be honest I am using mostly Sennheiser for 2 decades now, but I am open to new ideas! So, an CS-M1 and an CS-3e covers most bases, do you believe? Or an CS-M1 and 2?

    Here in Europe the price difference is 699euros vs 1199, is that "big" improvement worth the price of a new - additional F4, I am wondering?

    Sanken Cs-M1 new mike

    @Eric Toline do you care to expand a little on those reviews?!! Where do you people put this in the Sanken line up? With what other Sanken microphone you could "pair it" (as in, own) to have a very effective one - two punch for various circumstances? My current mics are Audix for int. and 416 for ext. but I would like to upgrade a bit, and maybe check some more modern solutions, and Sanken is very high on my list.

    I am not sure if the OP cares about a solution such this, but I use an AT4025 stereo mic with a Rycote BBG and windjammer. I went for this solution for portability and quality, and I believe it to perform greater than its price suggest. I use it with a DR100mkII and it is just a very small and light combo.

    Is a new Sound Devices MixPre-10T coming soon?

    Excellent review and to the point. I do not understand why creating a lower series is creating issues to the more expensive pro series's. Mixpre is between amateur/prosumer/semi pro/pro territory, going from amateur to pro incrementally by each one number (from 3 to 10T), as I don't believe many amateurs will buy the 10T, or many pro will buy the 3 version. The whole series is a huge success, and that will lead to better equipment overal, from entry level to the high end. 10T seems like an excellent option for low cost/many channels, plus timecode capabilities, but I am sure we most expect a more modern approach for the 6xx series.

    MKH50, Sennheiser vs Rycote mount?

    EThe elastic bands system of Sennheiser really works. They are based in a very basic principle that does the job well and is competitive with the top systems. As you said the cost is minimal, so go for the Rycote freely, but having a few backup elastic bands ain't a big deal either. My main basket is a Sennheiser and I do change the bands once per year, and no issues on the field whatsoever.

    Wireless in Europe

    Thank you Ilari!

    Wireless in Europe

    I would like to know if anyone has any info about the situation with the frequencies in Europe. I read most of the EU parliament decisions and data I could find, and what I get was that the frequencies we mostly use (470 - 700) are not secure, not even in the next few years. There is a lot of pressure from mobile companies and satellite's communication and transmissions, so we will have changes in the near future. What is your option about different channels? 470-541MHz / 566-638 / or 638-700 seem more safe? What about 2.4/.2.5 GHz digital Tx/Tr?

    Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    @Janik Hampe I was considering something like this http://www.orcabags.com/product/or-27-small-sound-bag-for/ 215*130*90 or the slightly larger http://www.orcabags.com/product/or-28-mini-sound-bag-for/, I have no 3D models though, just a plain sweet girl on their website! Their Harness would be nice with those smaller bags too. Featherweight in total.
