And like most condenser mics of the type Rich describes, the Rode
NT1-A's require 48 volt phantom powering--which your RH-10 is not
self-equipped to provide.  There are two popular, low cost, low noise
portable supply units that recordists are using with their HiMD, MD,
DAT recorders to support use of condenser or mics:

Rolls PB224 (Primarily available in the US; battery
replacement is easier; supplies 48 volts only.)

Art Phantom II Dual (Slightly smaller in size; supplies 12 and 48 volt=
