    The CK93 and other Blueline capsules have never seemed especially low in terms of output to me (and I've used the CK93 heavily over the years): for ref the specs are -40 dBV re 1 Volt/Pascal (10mV...

    Not here, James: still part of my and many others' lexicons! Just wasn't sure what you were driving at as evidently not a literal usage. Not sure where I would rank the CK93 exactly with other...

    Hi Alex,

    The AKG websites are very confusing, but suggest that most, if not all, of the Blueline series mics have been discontinued. That said, it's easy enough to find vendors of most of the...

    Not sure about it being 'penultimate' (!), but I would also second the AKG CK93. I've used one for years and it is really very good. Plenty of pros use/used to use them. The other capsules are fine...

    Just to add that I have heard back from Rode and the new pad is quite subtle, reducing the TX input sensitivity by 4dB.

    Interesting Ben: thanks for that. Of course a Manfrotto 501PL is a classic example of a long video camera plate with a registration pin which rather rubs it in that stills camera makers never added a...

    I suspect that you are right that there isn't any 32-bit hardware. Anyway aside from such guesses, Rode have got back to me re the latest firmware (v.1.4.8) to say that besides unspecified bug fixes...

    well, good luck: obviously we don't know what's inside the TX units yet. Really odd, though, to offer 32-bit export of a 24-bit file at the mo, as if that would be of use to anyone: we can only hope...
