Help in choosing preamp/microphones
« on: August 31, 2006, 11:03:22 PM »
Hi there. First off I hope I am requesting help in the proper forum. I just recently purchased a Sony MZ-M100 Hi-MD recorder. My next purchase s for a preamp and binaural microphones. Are there any suggestions as to which ones would be the best fit without having to break the bank. 

thanks in advance.

"Not break the bank" means different things to different people.  If you specify a budget, you may get more targeted responses.

I'd head over to the sound professionals website.  They have a great selection of preamps and gear for very reasonable prices.  I started with MD and that's where I got my mics and preamp from.

Question, does this MD do non-lossy recording?
I didn't know MD finally went non-lossy...

I would sell the MD and get a flash recorder such the Eridol R-09 personally as I just never trust MD since the original ones had lossy compression.... :)

How fast is the transfer to the computer from HIMD?

What's the advantage of an MD over the new SD Flash devices?

There is none.  If it says MD on it, buy something else.  That's all there is to it.

There is none.  If it says MD on it, buy something else.  That's all there is to it.

...except for the fact that MD media cheaper then SD media.  $5 for a 1GB disc vs ~$35 for a 1GB card; smaller then anything else out there; optical in which the R9 doest have, stable firmware which the MT sorta has (after how many months?).  The only draw back I see to the MD is that you can only get 1GB discs (95 min per disc) which usually isnt a problem for most shows and the transfer is a little slower. Takes me about 20 min to transfer a 90 min show off my RH1.  You're obviously a hater and its doubtful that you have ever used a HIMD recorder.

Thanks for all of the suggestions. The Hi-MD is lossless. I thought about the Edirol R09 and even a microtrak but settled on the MD recorder since I am a beginner and the cost wasn't so high.
