Yeah, looks pretty neat.  Although you have to wonder how much more affordable it would be without the 4 different pad settings, the 4 different low-pass settings, and the 4 different high-pass settings.

The CS Series is a new design altogether. The capsule was redesigned by Brent Casey changing the trim rings to smooth out the response. While this model is more expensive, it also incorporates the new HALO Shock mount...This new mount is very flexible and allows other mounts, Tbars and attachments to stack onto the HALO for some very cool mic arrays.

I believe the new CS Series will be a mic that will become a favorite to a lot of people. We have just started shipping these so it will take some time, but Mandy Moore just did her new album with the the CS5 at the Village in LA and was blown away, so the reports from those who have it have been very favorable...

Having the 4 pads is very useful and really does not add too much to the cost. The cost is mostly in the capsule and all new electronic circuit.

if its the same halo mount that ships w/the newly designed LSD2, its sucks.  terribly.
at least w/the heft of that club.
LMA recordings and what-not


Live music: hauling around a Marshall stack whose output will get squeezed through a single SM57, then mangled by a Guinness-soaked mixer and shoved through suspicious-smelling power amps into a pair of grungy cabinets whose best days were before they left the factory, all of which are under the control of an engineer who would much rather be at home watching television.

C'mon, Nick, tell me that you don't want to try a pair of CS5s....      ;D

Agreed on the mounts, something that is an opportunity for StudProj
Looks like the CS5 is being marketed against the R0des and all of their features

On the contrary,  I think the CS5 is aimed squarely at the AKG C414B line.

Has anyone tried these mics?  For $300 per mic it seems like a screaming deal considering the five polar patterns.  I wonder if it's too good to be true.  I've searched LMA for samples and only come up with a bunch of Adobe Soundbooth CS5 results.

every SP product i've owned....I've liked.   I can't see how these would be any different

Can't add much to the discussion (besides that I liked my C4s when I had them), but I find it interesting that a 10 year old link is still alive.  Sweetwater is on top of their internet game.
