RE: a hot street recorder

Thank you for this link, Neal:

really interesting.

There is a link to AudioRevew.com, where a revewer wrote:

I wrote to the guy, but he did not answer yet.
None of the others write about recording, it does not seem to be the 
main use...

Yes, this appears in several places, but all from the same guy, seems 
hard to believe, no?

I really wonder! An open input is no usefull reference for noise. And 
he sais he only heard the noise when he had boost on, so there might 
be in internal preamp we should not use.

In the specs they give 90dB noise distance which is fine for me but 
may not be true.

Also, the thing may have evolved... it certainly did in terms of price.
