Hi All,

after carting around my diy preamp and MZ RH-1 plus batteries and  
cables etc. on my last trip I'm seriously thinking about moving to a  
solid state recorder with decent balanced preamps.  I've been reading  
the archives and have narrowed the selection down to FR2-LE and  
possibly a Tascam HD-P2.  The budget will stretch to a Oade "super  
mod" FR2-LE, an unmodified HD-P2 and at a very big stretch a "super  
mod" HD-P2.

I was wondering if anyone had experience with the Oade modified  
recorders and could comment on their value? I've listened the samples  
of the Oade marantz mods and the preamps seem to be significantly  
quieter than stock, but I'm curious how the mods sound in the real  

I note that there was some discussion of the stock HD-P2 preamp gain  
being quite low, so I'm wondering if the AT3032's (specs claim  
Message: 19.
Subject: 9mV) would be sensitive enough to use?

I was also trying to listen to the HD-P2 24bit samples at http:// and they seem to be horribly  
distorted. Is this a file or recorder problem??
