Yes please! I'd very much like to hear tests with the Rode if it's output is that hot. And even the specs on the output voltage should tell the tale.

I've tried using the Sennheiser MKE 400, which also has a 'high' level switchable output. No go.

The output really needs to be getting up there towards Line level- and ideally a fairly hot Line level at that. (And yes, it is deeply mystifying that a DSLR includes a 'mic level' input that is that tolerant of  fairly high level signals. Usually, plugging a line level source into a mic input is instant crapola. ???)
