SanJacobs Posted March 8, 2022 Report Share Posted March 8, 2022 I'm looking to make the switch from Sanken's COS11d to DPA's 606X lavaliers. However, it's not cost effective for me to buy a full set of 6060s and 6061s. And I've seen a good few location sound mixers such as Tom Williams' lavalier collection being made up of 90% 6061 mics, which are the high SPL, low sensitivity variant of the 6060. My instinct would be to think that this isn't good, because it requires more gain out of the tiny transmitter preamps, leading to more noise, but if the top dogs are doing it, it can't be that bad, right? However, with DPA's CORE tech, is the advantage of higher SPL tolerance worth the risk of noise? What are your thoughts on this? My current transmitters are MTP40s Wisycoms, though I do use Audio Ltd. A10s sometimes, if that is relevant. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
