I have loads of samples. I tested these for over a year. Not sure I have posted anything. I will upload a few recordings.

Are any response graphs and polars for the TK capsules available?

Here is a recording I did back in 2012 using the protos - I wonder how different they sound to the production version

Thanks for the links Richard, I look forward to checking it out.  What are your thoughts of the FET vs. Tubes?

These are the mounts that came with my pair of tubes, but I didn't get the full field set, kinda cherry picked my set  ;D

How much cherry picking do they let you do? I really don't need any more cables, shock mounts or screens. I'd like to just get the bodies and one set of caps. Don't need the 69 dollar case either. Not really cherry picking, more like eliminating all the crap I don't need.

Well you kinda of loose the idea of the m260's and m60's if you where to use a active cable > PFA solution

The m60's from what I understand are a stab at the old km84 as they have output xformers
The m260's are tube based

The Telefunken design does not allow for a realistic addition of an active cable as the capusle is only a capsule and only has 2 conductors present (polarization and gnd)

You may be able to add a jfet based impedence converter with extension cable but you would need additional power for that (prob 4-10v depending on the design/FET)

They have looked into an active solution but I have no idea where this would stand in there priority list or how far it has gotten.

I prefered the m260's as they sounded more musical to my ears but I was using the first set of prototypes and only got to run them once (hard to judge with only one "test")
