Passive Ribbons and Preamp Impedance

Some mic preamps feature switchable input impedances. Others, such as those from AEA, offer ultra-high input impedances. While passive ribbon mics can be used with a low-impedance input, for the best signal-to-noise ratio and the highest bandwidth, passive ribbon mics like to see high-impedance inputs.
