External mic + pre-amp ?
I'll soon receive my Cowon S9, and besides listening to music, I intend to use it to record some of my teacher's piano sessions, using an electret microphone (Sony ECM 717). I also ordered the line-in cable.
After some research, and if I understood correctly, my microphone being passive, and since the Cowon doesn't have, like most DAP these days, a microphone input, I need a some sort of pre-amp that would also power the microphone.
I 'm not too sure about which pre-amp would do that, I mean power the microphone, so I wondered if anyone has a similar setup, and could give me some advice.
