I bought the Sound Professionals SP-TFB-2. 
But I have a question.  When using the edirol R09, don't you have to use preamp or bass roll off filter?  Some say yes, some say no.
I used the Sound Professionals SP-TFB-2 with a microtrack and the recording came out overrecorded and distorted with bass even on the lowest recording settings. So i guess I should have used a bass roll off filter.  Now I'm thinking of switching to an edirol.  From your experience, when using the edirol an extra bass roll off filter would be needed?

I have it on when I am doing nature/ambient work, so I would definitely have it on when recording in a club/concert.

This recording had the bass roll-off on...doesn't seem to hurt :)

Why do I use the bass roll-off? It cuts out the background rumble that seems ever-present in most ambient locations now a days :(

I have the high sensitivity models.

Digifish, what bass roll off do you use/recommend?  One from from sound professionals?  Would this be a good choice : http://www.soundprofessionals.com/cgi-bin/gold/item/SP-SPSB-11

Just so we don't have crossed wires. The R-09 has a built in bass roll-off. When I use the SP binaurals I plug it straight into the R-09 using the plugin-mic power and (if desired) the high-pass filter in the r-09. I usually do filter the SP binaurals as there is a a fair amount of rumble in most locations I am recording.

I was saying that if you are in a club you probably want the normal-sensitivity SP models (I have high sensitivity) and to also use the high-pass filter on the R-09.

I have not used the SP battery module and filter as the R-09 doesn't need it. R-09 + SP binaurals = bliss.
