Preamps: Zoom H5 vs H4n. Big difference??
I recently bought a Rode NTG3. I've had a H4n for a few years now and everywhere I've read its preamps are terrible and that the H5 has much, much better ones. So I was ready to change my H4n for a H5 but I decided to do a few tests with the NTG3 and the H4n. And I thought it sounded quite ok, even with the volume all the way up. But then I am not a sound expert at all.
Then I found this video review of both recorders with the NTG3 connected. And to me they sound quite the same. And even the reviewer says he didn't hear much difference between them.
Has anyone experienced the 'much better preamps of the H5'? Do they make a huge difference compared to the H4n one?
I;m just wondering whether I should go ahead and try to sell my H4n to get a H5...
Any comment would be much appreciated
