Doesn't it charge via the attached usb "stick"?

Hi, i just bought it and am confused.
I use Church audio ca and batterybox.
When i select external Settings there is "mic in" and "audio in" to select. What shall i choose here?
And is the locut just a Base roll off or a hard cut of Bass?
If your mics are omnidirectional, line in. If they're cardioids, mic in, low sensitivity.

Especially if they're cardioids, don't apply any highpass filters (aka bass roll-off). You can always dial it out in post-production but more often than not, I find myself dialing more in during post-production.

This thing has piqued my curiosity. 

Two quick questions (and I think this is helpful for everyone otherwise I might've directed these at a couple of people via PM):

1/ I read somewhere (not on here) that the recording level adjustments are audible -- is this the case or has a new firmware been released for it?

2/ With the Baby nBox, I'm assuming it's still mic in, low gain, correct?  And, from what I've recalled, the mic level inputs are better than the M10 but that the line level is noisier.

Thanks all!

I personally have not heard any noise from adjusting the recording levels. I've used line in as well as mic in with the baby nbox

....
My guess is that it is impossible to fix in the firmware. I base this on two observations:
1) In the sales material for the Sony D10, Sony points to the analog gain control as a feature:”...because these are high-quality analog controls, you can adjust the gain smoothly, without the step noise that can be encountered with digital volume.” Thereby indirectly  saying that they can’t make it noise free electronically/digitally - which is how it is implemented in the A10.
2) Roland R07 - a similar contemporary recorder exhibit a similar gain phenomenon as seen in the A10.



Roland R-07, iPhone8, iRIG PRE HD, FEL Communications Clippy EM172, Shure MV88,, Sennheiser MKH416T, RØDE M1, RØDE Link RX/TX, RØDE Lav, Roland CS-10EM, Sennheiser AMBEO Smart Headset.
