$30k mic test over at GS
« on: March 22, 2017, 07:31:39 PM »
Some of you may find this interesting. We tested about $30k worth of mics head to head.  The material is classical, but should provide a good way for you to hear how some very fine mics compare to each other.  Mics included AEA r88 stereo ribbon(via AEA trip), akg c426, Schoeps CMC64s, cmc62s, cmc621s, Sennheiser mkh30s in ms, Samar 373a active stereo ribbon mic, and royer sf12 (via AEA ribbon mic preamp), all routed to a pair of synced metric halo ULN-8s.

Interesting, will check it out.  Thanks for the heads up John, and thanks for the effort it must of taken to do this.

"Narrow or widely spaced microphone configurations are preferred. It is well-known experience that pure coincidence microphone concepts are not able to produce a satisfying natural spatial impression, due to the lack of adequate interchannel temporal relations (time-of-arrival, phase, correlation)" -G√ľnther Theile
"The mix of the Double M/S signals with a large A/B configuration of omnis results in the spacious sound that is often desired. This option also provides decorrelated low-frequency signals." -Helmut Wittek
