Chris- thanks for the feedback...I was wondering if we would hear from you (from the ref from the earlier post)...all good stuff. My one question (maybe 2) is ...have you been able to use the Pro mix3 at all? It seems at this price point they are very comparable systems...the ENG-44 is about $60 more (and an extra input). Do you use this model solely on it's own or do you add an extra phantom power in the line so as too not "tax" the mixer too much? Let me know. I was leaning toward the Pro mix but now you have me thinking...

Thanks in advance

Steve... most usage has been with either the Oktaba MK-12 drawing phamtom (interior hypercardiod usage), or with an ME-66 (has internal battery but I also use phantom from the mixer even when I have a battery in. I have had concerns about powering two mics at the same time for any duration...I also make sure I have two sets of batteries and I carry a little battery tester with me.

I have run two mics briefly, but they were lavs (SONY ECM-44's that run off their own bias battery).

I have no experience with the other mixer you have under consideration, sorry.
