Just got this from Audix on the Micros

"the current draw of the M1290 is measured to be between 6.05 mA to 6.45 mA."

48-52v

especially when the AT853Rx's are rated at 2 mA typ. and only last 2 hours, but it doesn't seem that much in the grander scheme, ie. two 2200 mAh batteries.  Fuck, I dunno...

Studio Projects C3  <2.5mA
   "           "     C4   <2.0mA

from their spec on the SP site  http://www.studioprojectsusa.com/c3.html
