At first I was thinking to use Compact for amplifying my string quartet but after trial the conclusion is no.
Tried also L1 M2 with my acoustic violin and I was much happier about the sound with this system. We are using DPA 4061 miniature mics for each 4 instruments.
As T1 ToneMatch has only 3 XLR inputs my 2 question are:
1. Is there a new T2 ToneMatch on the way with more XLR inputs (it's 4 years old)?
I don't know the answer to this question but Bose never comments on products that are in development.
2. If not would DPA 4061 work in input 4/5 with XLR to TS or TRS adaptor (I did not try this in the shop...)?
PS: I have external phantom power for 4th mic.
You will just have to try this and let us know how it goes. The gain structure is different on Channel 4/5 from Channels 1,2,3. The input sensitivity is higher with Channels 1,2,3 and you may need another preamp to get the signal up where you need it on Channel 4/5.
I may have all the bits an pieces around here to give this a shot. I'll be back in a little while to tell you how it worked at this end.
You are welcome.
In the meantime, here are some notes for you.L1® Model II in the wiki T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine
