RODE NT2A
See above for spc.

OVERALL OPINION

Essay one full day. I AIM multi-directivity finish and weight. That's reassuring.
The omni capsule is not convincing trs.
I have tried other couples bttn small diaphragms: Oktava MK12, Rode NT5 Studio Project C4, Neuman KM 84 and the AKG 414 and the Neumann TLM 103.
The quality-price ratio is adequate, if the microphone you!
I've tried a couple that I was taken prt for cello on a Fostex FR2 for the acquisition of a couple ddi. The association is not very happy.
I do not know if the Fostex pramplis adequately feed the mic but the fact remains that the sound is dcevant mdium in the treble and the treble. The effect of proximity and the large investment made dlicat, especially since the dynamics of the Fostex is not the best, far from it ...
Bass and bass mdium-cons are pretty full and warm.
So if the mixed opinions trs. Should be seen on another note prampli to ensure reliable but know that for a portable recorder type FR2 this microphone is not recommended.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought this micro there it 6 months, for its price performance is quite acceptable.
Level of the spectrum: this microphone has a fairly strong response in acute departing nice thing is slowly becoming boring (I mean the EQ is still in the mix utilent c is clear) because without editing the sounds of mouth and saliva end by tickling the ears.
The input level is interesting to work the only problem is the use of attenuators on the microphone that is downright noticeable.
Selectable high pass filters are also interesting (I used to catch the voice as well say that everything that is below the 80Hz I do not use much.
The microphone sensitivity is likely to pose problems for those who register in an acoustic space not dedicated to the sound: phase problems in perspective, do not hesitate to invest in a sling again due to the sensitivity of the micro .
In terms of the directivity I will not dwell too much because I only used the cardioid (it's switchable bi-directional and omni).
For value, this microphone is suitable for a simple test with other microphones in the same price range we will certainly all agree. Home-studio owners beginner please save some money and put you directly in a range of intermediate product with this micro: micro-best market does not offer all the setting options that will offer micro, if you have the means skip to the higher ranges, but I'm already that if c is n if you are already reading these lines.
My rating for this product would account classification produced mid-range!
(That would be a shame to overstate a product)
