  1. Yeah for shit and giggles I read this threat again a while ago at Gearslutz about that...😁 Spoiler alert; most people preferred the cheap as shit Behringer over the Aurora... https://www.gearslutz.com/board/gear-shoot-outs-sound-file-comparisons-audio-tests/335267-lynx-aurora-16-vs-behringer-ada8000.html
  2. Interesting. Just found this writeup: https://redesigned-1.stagetec.com/en/stagetec/stage-tec/know-how/truematch/1036-better-than-the-microphone-pauler-acoustics.html
  3. Sure, but in your line of thought, a whole computer is analog then, since they have transformers/resistors/caps etc... 😁 And that depends; if indeed the claim being made by Patrick/Sam is true, and there is no amplification in there (yes, maybe some circuitry to get it all proper, but NOT gain), it is getting interesting. Hence my previous mentioned "Pseudo MESS" microphone (these MESS mics, usually in phones and tablets, also take the direct electricity from the mic into the digital domain, kinda).
  4. Although it is contradicting (Sam/zoom statement), it is not unknown in the audio/music bizz, to bypass a preamp. Lots of people use "hotter" microphones straight into compressors without preampfification, they do it for an effect, usually to really PUMP the sound, but it is not unheard of. SO, since we are speculating here ANYWAYS, it is an interesting theory, if the AtoD (32 bit?) converter indeed can handle lower signals, thus do not need the amplification a preamp gives (all in all, a preamp is there just to add gain), It is all up to the microphone what the actual noise/spl specs are.
  5. Thanks Richard. Looks interesting. Definitely for documentary work.
  6. That is not the claim, the claim is that there is no preamp involved (making up mic level to line level). You confuse me now. AES3/42, hence 67, are digital distribution protocols. Indeed it needs to be stabilised/controlled/whatever (and because of the high freq nature of a digital signal, a high impedance cable is preferred, the 110 ohms for example, to resist interference/reflections/return loss) to get properly into the "receiver", but besides the initial A to D conversion at the "transmitting" end, there is no D/A/A/D conversion involved anymore with the aforementioned protocols.
  7. AES doesn't need any amplification on the receiving end if that is what you mean? Also, it can be carried over optical fiber (Toslink); https://tech.ebu.ch/docs/tech/tech3250.pdf
  8. No, AES3 is already PCM. I think this "Zoom design" actually comes close to a kinda "pseudo AES42" design, or even "pseudo MEMS".
  9. So yeah i remember that quote. Indeed 180 degree from what he told @Patrick Farrell @ZoomOfficial care to chime in on the subject?
  10. Oh wow. Why did i miss this critical piece of info. That's quite a major detail. Where you got this intel from?
  11. Really wonder this microphone. Not much out there on the interwebs. Care to share your day to day experience with it? You use it as a main mic, also for mono (just mid i reckon) applications? Reach of the mid, etc.
  12. I recently stumbled upon this one by Linear/Analog Devices. They claim a "true" 32 bit at 145 db. I thought that "true" 32 bit was about ~190db by the way. https://www.analog.com/en/products/ltc2508-32.html
  13. I recently had to service my 20+ year old bass guitar, foil was there sitting glued like it was brand new.
  14. I wonder if something like RF tape or paint, used in electric guitar building, under the pick guard, can do anything about that. A bit of tape/paint on the inside of the plastic part of the connector.
