That's what I have also observed. I don't have any solutions for remote capture (other than the obvious: using the best gear at the most conservative gain usable) but in a studio multitrack situation I have relied on a 2 mic approach. One mic (usually a ribbon) is recorded at a lower gain and used only for the peaks that stress the primary mic. Maybe a little difficult to balance but can be a life saver.
