jcs Posted October 5, 2016 Share Posted October 5, 2016 The C300 II preamps sound pretty good, though the limiter isn't as good as Sound Devices. I would expect the C100 II to sound not too far off (who knows, Canon might even use the same parts/circuits to save cost). From what we've shot so far on the Schoeps CMC641 and Audix SCX-1HC (way lower cost and not far from the Schoeps in sound quality) into the C300 II, I'm not sure a Sound Devices would provide significantly better sound in the studio. For location shoots, Sound Devices will likely sound better, however as a one-man band most of the time, I prefer not to use separate audio to save time in post (and reduce shoot complexity). Someday I might do a dialog test with a Schoeps CMC641 into a Sound Devices USBPre2 and compare quality to the C300 II. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
