my not using transformers isn't to do with principals really - its that, wi=
th my own set up of various mics & sound devices recorder etc, I have no ne=
ed for them except the impedance transformers I use with contacts & hydroph=
ones. In terms of the issue with the roland recorders, from what I gather f=
rom replies this far (here & elsewhere) the issue wouldn't be solved by a t=
ransformer & perhaps more to the point, they shouldn't need to have an adap=
tor to be able to be used with these mics. I know students who've used them=
 with a zoom for gawds sake & Roland should be able to sort out whatever ci=
rcuitry is needed to make their recorders usable with DPA's.

I had an email the other day from Roland UK's head tech chap & it perhaps e=
xplains something in so much as he implied that he had no experience with D=
PA mics ! at the same time he mentioned he'd be out of the office as he was=
 attending the launch of a new Roland product to the film & tv industry. I =
think it's fair to say that DPA4060's are amongst the most widely used micr=
ophones in the film & tv industry. If Roland haven't tested their recorders=
 with some of the DPA ranges then it might explain why they can't get somet=
hing right that other folks have.
