Schoepes CMIT 5u Destoryed by Fostex FR 2 LE

I published a few days ago, a thread about the Schoepes CMIT 5u being plugged into a Fostex FR 2 LE, field recorder.

Since then, I've used this set up for 3 days and now, my CMIT 5u has completely stopped working.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm in the process of getting a refund.

$2000 investment= gone.

What could I have done wrong? It wasn't exposed to overly excessive load noise or moisture. It was simply plugged into the recorder,used around the house, and then started to smoke. Was it the set-up? Did this ever happen to anyone else?

I've gone back to using my AT4073.

Duplicate thread.

But if your AT works then it's almost certainly a fault with the Schoeps and not the Fostex.

A faulty Schoeps is extremely rare and I'm sure they would sort it pronto for you.
