Seeing that I have a horrible preamp (I’m pretty sure its made out of toy parts) I realized that a pair of nice NT5s won’t sound very good until I spend quite a bit more on a preamp. So I canceled the order.
As you may know, I’ve been moving toward the direction of “sound art” for the last several months. So the question really is, what’s more important, recording my piano or sounds of the world? The latter.
However, I did spend an additional hundred dollars on this unit because it has a solid reputation as one of the quieter field recorders with pretty good built-in microphones. We will see just how well it records the Acrosonic.
