Hi, I don't have accurate measurements, however, by recording in the same
quiet situation I got 10dB more noise and 10dB less signal (20dB less SNR)
with the H2N than with a Sonosax MR82 connected to Audiotechnica 4022
microphones. I also had brick walling problems with loud sounds.
I understand I compared it with a very high quality setup. In any case I
was disappointed.
