Nice warm audio Bang for the Buck  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Pick up this condenser large diaphragm microphone
a few weeks back after reviewing some Home studio vocal microphone choices. Turns out it was a good move. Now geting nice audio reports with smooth warm sound. The microphone does require a 48 volt supplu so I grabed a low cost Art Tube MP studio microphone preamp. The Balanced line out is approx 600 ohms, it has a 12AX7 tube report. which I may swap out later for an RCA (nos).

From the preamp balanced 3pin XLR out I made up a cable with an Rj45 connector then into a FLEX 3000.

For the price of the mic and the ART tube preamp about 135.00 it has great audio and cheaper then a lot of the Heils and a few others.
