Okay just got my new R121 and TG2 today!!! I am stoked but I have a few questions.
The TG2 is one of the older units without the 300 Ohms mod. Does anyone think the $150 is worth it for the mod (plus I would have to pay for shipping and be without the unit for another week or more)?? Is the variable Ohms unit much better than the one I have??
Also the R121 Ops manual says that it should be used with a mic pre that has an input impedance of at least 1500 ohms but the TG2 is 1200?? I know people use the TG2 with the R121 all the time, just wondering if I am missing something?? Won't the 1200 ohms load the ribbon too much??
Enquiring minds want to know, or at least I want to know.
If you just got it new today I hope whoever sold it you sold it at a hell of a discount... that "mod" is now a STANDARD FEATURE on the current model. You got old stock that should have been sent back to the factory by the dealer for the upgrade, or sold as old stock.
The "mod" is definitely worth it... I find it to be a very handy feature.
I was aware of the difference and it was sold to me as "old stock" but I hear the current model is also $150 more so I assume we are talking about the same thing really, $150 for the update or $150 more for the new version?? Am I missing something??
Fletcher, you say that it is a handy feature, in what applications do you find it helpful??
Also how about the R-121 and the TG2 input impedance???
