Well I am probably the only one here who missed all the hype, so this is a really nice surprise.

 

Would I be the first idiot to try dunking one into water ... ?

 

Might be worth thinking to get three then ...

Because it is a Core mic, it is actually rated IP58 waterproof. Go and dunk away happily knowing that it will be just fine afterwards.

needs 5V Minimum for full performance 

That's what their specs say for all of their mics. but they behave just fine with the 3.3v of Zaxcom. very slightly higher noise floor, but nothing that impacts normal use

To add to what Pete is saying, both DPA and Zaxcom have improved their products drastically where this has become a non-issue IMO. DPA's core technology (which is available in this newly released mic) has done great work at reducing the THD and expanding dynamic range overall, and Zaxcom's newest transmitters (ZMT, etc) have improved pre-amp circuitry. I would invite you to try them and hear for yourself.

That being said I even find the 4063 bit noisy when used in a quiet environment 

But that is low DC and low sens. 

Maybe the 6060 is just doing fine on Zaxcom.

 

Try a 4060/1 Core (or this new 6060/1) with the same transmitter. I think you will appreciate the difference.
