I think I agree with you and that's what I'll do if I need this particular mic.

Add the nice little Sonosax !

Hi Doug,

I have the exact same setup with the 373a and 788T. Late last year I was able to pick up the excellent AD8+ 8 channel pre from Sonosax and use its digital outs to feed the 788 quite regularly now (especially at my home studio).

To my ears, the Sonosax sounds significantly quieter than the 788's pres and once setup via an easy web interface is a breeze to operate. I did get the small Sonosax recorder too but after using the 788 all these years the ergonomics of the 788 are hard to beat.

Best regards,
Baithak

Hi Baithak,
Currently I'm using a Millennia Media HV-3D-8 with a Prism sound orpheus - laptop for on location recording (mostly jazz and impro "www.singrecording.be"). Because the millennia media is so heavy to carry around I'm thinking to swtich to a sonosax AD8+8 with the AVB option card.

Can anyone compair the Millennia Media/orpheus set-up with the Sonosax set-up ?

Only if the quality is equal I will make the change.

thanks,

K.

I advise that you stay far away from the AVB platform. Dead as a duck. If there is an option for Dante, it is the Audio Over IP choice for certain.

My (and many others) $.02
