    Hello to all!. I´m new in this Forum, this is my first post.
    I do recordings of classical music and ethnic music. This ethnic´s
    recordings sometimes are field recordings, without AC power.
    I´m in the task of upgrading my gear. I´ve recently purchased a matched pair of microphones: Schoeps CMC6-xt, cardioids. I think it is a good start.
    Now I´m investigating about a 2 channel pre for these microphones.
    I could buy a Millennia HV-3B pre, but for ethnic recordings I would need a battery powered pre.
    Wich battery powered pre do you think offers the best sound quality ?
    And how near or how far do you think is it from a Millennia HV-3B?
    Thank you very much, your knowledge will be greatly appreciated. Oak.

    welcome :D

    I have no experience with this unit, but I believe the Apogee mini-me may do the trick for you. I think I remember reading that it's either bus-powered or it's battery powered...either way should work pretty well for you. However, as i said before...no experience with this unit. Maybe that can focus your research a bit...

    don't know how sonically similar it will be to the Millennia, but it should be a pretty clean unit.
