yes - its not that i'm putting all the blame on the recorder but it does, a=
s I've said already, seem rather odd that cheaper machines handle the DPA's=
 fine & given that the head tech chap at Roland didn't seem very aware of D=
PA mics it strikes me that if they'd tested the build with them anyway they=
 should have been able to do whatever other makers have done in order to de=
al with the issue. The Roland recorders are the only one I know of that can=
't handle the DPA's & that surely means they're not doing something that ot=
her makers are (all of whom test during design with DPA's in their test kit=

so, my question now is does anyone other than DPA make a microdot to xlr ad=
aptor that might be wired the way thats been suggested ?

thanks again for all your help in trying to work this out.
