In places were I have just been to, Alaska and Big Bend Texas, I took
readings quieter than I have done for years, 10-20db and recorded with 2 x
mkh-20's and my 722, I can not hear any noise from the mics or the pre-amp
even when I jack up the gain.
I know if I take the MKH,s to places like Belize or Costa Rica, I am never
going to worry about performance in 100% humid environments either. So as
far as cost goes, what price do you put on reliability?

I can not speak to the reliability or humidity or temp response of
Rhode mic. But for signal to noise it beats the mkh line.
I had never heard a system where I set the headphone level at the
actual outdoor level in a very quiet place and hear no mic noise at
all. Then kick up the volume more and have the mics still hold
I like the mkh line but with them taking the gold out I really am not
sure that we are still getting what we pay for.
