Does anyone know if the Rode NT-2000 large diaphragm microphone produces a quieter output level than that of the Rode NT-1A? I was comparing the two side by side using vocals, and after ensuring that the NT-2000's Pattern, pad and HPF switches where set for maximum output, I found that I had to push up the gain on my external preamp (Aphex 207D) a few more notches, and sing a little bit closer to get its output level similar to the NT1-A.
Once I did this however it sounded very clear and obviously better than the NT1-A. I was wondering also if the NT1-A seemed louder as it produced a more pronounced higher end which seemed quite harsh in comparison to the NT-2000.
Look forward to your comments.
