Avenson STO-2 mics with FMR RNP and Profire 610

Hey guys! I'm planning to buy the Avenson STO-2 mics that come in pair! I've heard great stuff about those mics! My current setup is an FMR RNP and M-Audio Profire 610! I will be using these mics mainly for acoustic and classical guitar!
My question is will these work okay with my setup or will they be noisy with the FMR RNP preamp? I can see that they have a very high self noise!
Any advice would be highly appreciated.

Hmmm. I cannot speak to the RNP. However, we have used a pair of STO-2 mics for years. They have been used into Studio Projects, Pre73, Yamaha, Presonus, and a whole lot of other pre-amps, and there has never once - ever - been an issue with self noise. We often use them with acoustic guitars in very quiet situations. All is well.

Good luck with your decision.

I think you'll be fine with the 610 and those mics.
