Hey guys! I tried searching the many questions about these handhelds, but I have a specific question:
Has anyone done tests or has anyone tried out various handhelds to know which one sounds the best when using the XLR input w/ phantom power on a condenser mic? Essentially, a pre-amp shootout.
The one I'm eying right now is a Tascam DR-40 or the Zoom H4n. I've got a Zoom H2n right now and I want to upgrade to one which allows me to use a better mic for on-the-fly interviews and such.
Anyone have any suggestions as to the best sounding XLR input on these types of devices or do they sound similar enough that quality doesn't really matter?
p.s. I have a contact at GC Pro and other such retail stores that could possibly get me some test units of the top contenders out there and I can do a battery of tests with them and I can post them up for ya'll to hear if anyone's interested.
p.p.s. Come on, Rene, surely you've done this sort of thing already, right? :)
