Seeing that Larry G uses one of these straight into a powered speaker, seems like a good starting point for further investigation...anybody have any experience? Seems like the right size, right price and gets stellar reviews. i wonder how it sounds with a Heil pr 40 into it then into the focus? I wonder if like the Avalon U5 it does for a mic signal what that does for a hi Z? Anybody got one? Also I just got a Apogee Duet and was thinking that a stereo pair into the RNP might make a great live recording rig?
