I bought the Zoom H3-VR, made some atmosphere recordings and got a 40dB
signal to noise ratio. Today, I'm going to send it back to the dealer.
Indeed, that package was just too good to be true.

Well, don't know… I should try to get some used devices on
ebay-kleinanzeigen.de. There are several "mixpre 6" selling for around
700€. The ambisonics plugin for that device costs another 50€. But I
guess that's the price for getting a noiseless experience…

Still, there is a microphone to buy…

Coresound "Tetramic" seems not to be available in germany. As well as
the Soundfield "SPS-200".
Sennheiser "Ambeo" is a bit too pricey.
Røde NT-SF1 costs 2/3 of the Sennheiser, but still: a lot of money for me.

No used mics at all.
