Thanks Ty, nice review. Did I hear a slight boost around 2.5k on the Rode? I can't believe how little self-noise the Rode exhibits.

How's that 788 working?

Will,

I hear the EQ difference as less "chest" in the Rode. That's similar to a boost somewhere else higher in the frequency response, but not quite the same. I think it makes the 416 sound a little smoother.

Yes, selfnoise are very similar and very low. Some of that may be the exquisitely low noise of the 788T.

788T is working nicely. I need to do the firmeware upgrade and have asked that they trip the input peaks AT 0dBFS rather than at an unspecified number of dB below 0dBFS. I only want to see red when I'm actually in troble. The output LEDs are programmable, but the inputs aren't, yet.

Regards,

Ty Ford

Doesn't the 788 have that obnoxious red screen in record? Or am I thinking of something else?
