If no actives required / desired, I really like the MG M200 or M210 + SMS2000.
If actives required / desired, Neumann AK40/KM100.
LD, gotta fluff the AKG C414B ULS even though I haven't used 'em a whole lot yet - I really like the recordings I've heard.

i prefer the ADK TLs to those ones.

MBHO 648's or 603's are a nice compliment to the warm sounding MME.....I use the 648?KA200

2 years ago I would say a set of mk41's (about what I paid for mine new) but no way you can touch them for $1500 now....Many good options mentioned above, can't go wrong with the MG's, 480's, Neumann. MBHO's would sound nice also

if you dont need actives...the MGs are the best option in that price range..that being said JK labs has started making active sets for the mgs, but that will push the price point up quite a bit

90% of time from they section
MG's, worried about getting other caps.  They are so rare.  A new prices are wicked crazy.
I want to do SD.
Don't care about actives.
