I don't understand. Many nature recordists including myself, have used vari=
ous xlr mics with various recorders using the 3.5mm mic inputs without suff=
ering from noticeable noise issues beyond what could be expected given the =
quality of the preamps. Can you give an example of the "Low-Z" mic you are =
referring to, an example of the expected noise issue, or what about 3.5mm i=
nput on the R-26 is different than the 3.5mm input on other recorders?
