That's why we'd better off with 2 * 1k, and in case we need we could create
a R-C-R lowpass by rplacing the other 0R with a further 1k and equipping the 
C. A 100uF creates a AC short to GND, so we could keep the symmetrical design 
of 1k from big C to mic, and one 1k from micn to GND. And we still have a R-C 
lowpass built from the new R. If we dn't need the big-C fix, we can leave out 
the C and make the one R 0R.

btw: 1k + 1k (+ 1k) < 2k2 + 2k2
