I have been lurking here and reading the discussion
which seems to me to have reduced itself down to a
kind of "my daddy is better than your daddy" kind of
The person who said the D104 microphone could be
thought of as a voltage generator in series with a
500 pF capacitor hit the nail on the head! Exactly
correct (although I thought it might be a *slightly*
higher capacitance value).
I have spent a few minutes with LTspice and made
a plot which clearly shows what happens when you
change the value of the load on the D104 microphone.
With a 10 megohm load the -3 dB point will be right
at 30 Hz.
Please, fellows, take a quick peek at this plot:
The bottom line of this note is that going higher than
10 megohms for a load is nonsense. Pure nonsense.
