Hello all. I have another question for the list as I try to narrow my  
choices for PIP powered omni capsules. Still waiting to hear if the  
Prime EM-158 is the same as the Bedford Technical Bi-158's....

Anyway, as far as the Shure goes from what I gather it needs a bit  
more PIP voltage than some of the recorders supply. I very much would  
like to avoid a separate battery supply if I can help it. The specs  
on the Sony PCM-D50 recorder has this to say in regards to external  
mic power:

Microphone Input (stereo mini jack):
Input impedance: 22k, rated input level: 2.5mV, minimum input level: 
Message: 0.
Subject: 7mV. Supports external mic plug-in power.

I know that the Shure's might need more power than the PIP circuits  
in the Sony MZ-R37's. I wasn't sure if I'd have this same problem  
with the flash-based PCM-D50.

Any opinions/tips/suggestions would be much appreciated.
