Howdy folks. This is my first post. Please excuse the noob. I'm not sure what I need, or if this is even the right forum. It appears that it is not obvious because of the uniqueness of my request: WHat I'm looking for is a permanent audio setup that will pipe outdoor sounds cleanly into the house. I live in a forested part of California. My goal is to have 24/7 nature in the house. What I need: Outdoor Mic, capable of withstanding rain and cold. Distance from the Mic to the amp...say about 20'. Amp/preamp - not looking for much power since it is going to be just a constant background noise. Thoughts?
