I have the opportunity to buy 2 brand new Apogee MINI MPs for $899. I was thinking about just buying a quadmic for my 4 channel location recordings for $489. What is a better deal in this case. Has somebody tryed the MINI MPs. I have the octamic already so quadmic info is not needed.I know how it sound already.ANd I am very happy with it. I guess I do not understand why MINI MP has only one advantage over Quadmic----15 db of extra gain and can exept 3db more input. I do not understand why the price is so much more then quad. Is the 15db extra that important in real live operation???
