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

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")


They have not changed much. I will send Ted my pair and let him play with them. Only time I use them now is for onstage as they lack that "something" that my MG's give me.

I saw these when I visited the factory to pick up my 260's. The fit & finish was excellent, I really liked the way they were packaged in the stereo set. I think they will have a winner if they hit the street with the pricing we were discussing AND of course they sound good.....
I know you like, tape for people's approval and stuff, and wave your tapes around like they're your dick...  but even you can't actually think section tapes from philips sound good.

So, any news? Did you get your set? I'm interested to hear these & if they are Telefunkens stab at the KM84. Enquiring minds want to know  :D

Have not received as of yet.  Was on back order, as I guess I missed the pre-book?  Expecting them possibly...hopefully today?

If only I had them last week for a Big Band recording of Zappa's music with the Ed Palermo Big Band.

I really want to test the M62 Hyper-Cardioid caps.

I really like the hyper caps in my set, I use them more often than not. I find them closer to a super card than hyper, they are very full sounding yet do a great job of rejecting the junk in the room. It's my go to cap in the rooms I tape in unless I'm on stage. I imagine the fet set up will be the same since it's the same cap with the fet body vs the Tubes. Hope you get yours soon so you can share your thoughts.

I also want to test the Card Caps against my Miktek C5MP FET Cards I run.  I really like the C5's although I never see or hear of many people using them outside of studio's and or overheads at clubs.  Much testing and fun to come!

Those Mikteks look interesting to me as well, I've wondered why more people don't use them except in studio applications. All the feedback seems positive every time I've read about them. I think most of us as tapers are too worried about spending money on mics such as those that aren't widely used in our typical applications, I know I am but if I had the money to spend I'd like to try a set sometime.

Contacted my sales rep in re. to my order and was notified that it was going to drop ship today from Telefunken's warehouse in CT, as well as they knocked off an extra $50.  I'll take any additional discount.

Should have by Monday!
