HI
i just bought zoom h2n. it has stereo minijack 'mic/line' input which can supply 'plug in power'.. any one have any experience using this unit with external mics? i would like to use 2x lavaliers.. can find no mention of what mics might be suitable either in the manual or on the internet. can anyone help?
thanks
Jp

Google is your friend when you choose the right combination of words.

I tried "lavalier plugin power". Here's one that came up:

Some of the small AKG condensers can be used with plug-in power although I'm not sure whether this is officially supported.
