OK, well they are 900 a pair overseas, which seems like a lot.  I would talk to gprime.  Tell them you saw the special they were offering last year for buy one get one half off, and see if they will still honor that.  I know they still had it a couple months ago!

prices are most likely apiece, unless noted as a stereo pair.  

what model # are you interested in, and i'll look to double check.  that site can be kinda confusing...  ;)

yep, sorry, but these prices are definately apiece:

M300 DARK BRONCE    456.44 USD
M200 SATIN NICKEL    607.65 USD
M200 BLACK MATT       607.65 USD

sounds like the US retailers may be the best choice right now.  prices fluctuate with the Dollar, so this appears to not be a good time to buy from Germany.

peace

Check out the Hosa webpage for dealers in your area, you want model MIT-176:

I really liked the pig-tail setup on this one, made it easier to pack, deal with cables once hooked up, etc.

The Audio Technica SP8201s also seem popular:

http://www.audiotechnica.com/guide/other/access/inline.html

Not sure where to get 'em, but I think there's a number you can call in the About AT section of the website to either order direct or find a local dealer.

I've heard of still others using Radio Shack transformers, don't know the model.

Good luck!

Thanks for posting up those prices.  For the 200s, that's a really good price; GPrime charges more than that.  For the 300s, that is not a good price; several retailers have them for cheaper (including GPrime).  Interesting about the discrepancy between model number pricing.

If you order from overseas, don't forget that you will have to tack on some additional funds for customs and shipping.  I really want to order a pair of M20 caps (the cards), but I am still looking for a good price on those or waiting until someone offers up a used pair.

thanks for the info. Now i would need a 1/4 to 1/8 stereo adaptort to go from that to my d100 right? And also what settings should it be on? Or does it depend on the situation

Right!  Yeah, I forgot about the 2 x 1/4" > mini(1/8") stereo plug, you'll need one of those, too.  They're inexpensive.  I think I have a Hosa adapter I picked up at a local music shop, always worked fine for me.

By what settings, do you mean on the D100?  If so, with the transformers in the chain you'll want to run Line-In to your D100, setting levels manually (no AVLS/autolimit or whatever the other options are).  One of the reasons to run line transformers is to bypass the not-so-hot mic pre in the D100.

Whether you record at 48 khz or 44.1 kHz is a personal choice and depends in part on your ultimate destination medium for the recording and your resampling capability.

Gotcha, Geoff - I understand your confusion now.

The unit you see with multiple settings on the AT page is an attenuator (CP8202) - it *cuts* gain if you have too much.  You won't need this one.

If you go the AT route, the one you want is just below the CP8202 on the AT webpage I listed before, the CP8201, the middle unit in the page.

Hope this helps!

guys i came up with a little problem...Well DMB's tour dates just went up and it looks like I can only go to 4 dates at most... I was planning on at least 8 for the year. And since i dont know any other schedules it may be im only going to be hitting under 15 shows this year. Is it worth it to buy gear knowing that i might not be using it alot?
