I've been hearing a lot of good stuff about Telinga-EM23 omni microphones for field recording, as it has low self noise specs.
I have plans to buy this mic & I use a SD MixPre-D hooked up with a Zoom H4n.
My questions are,
Since Telinga-EM23 comes with a 3.5mm output jack, i have to use a 3.5mm to a XLR adapter to hook it up to my mixpre-d right? so would using a 3.5mm to XLR adapter cause noise/hiss issues?
I have read & heard people use this mic for nature recordings or recording low level sources. So for example - does recording loud traffic sounds cause clipping with this mics?
Do you recommend using Telinga-EM23 only for recording low level sound sources & another set of mics for loud sources? or could Telinga-EM23 handle both?
My plan is basically to create a stealth binaural recording package, Kindly help me out here, any help is much appreciated.
