Just got a call from AKG. They're going to fix everything for a more reasonable price. Plus they're local (San Diego).

Would you happen to have a contact for them Charlie? Would like to try and work around using Lands. As it is I need to ask him to send my mics back to me.

@obaaron brought his 460/ck1's and we did some tests. We swapped caps and discovered that it's one of the caps that's bad. When I used his caps on my bodies it came out great. The issue followed the caps. That I can deal with, it's easy to find caps. So I now have a working pair of 460/ck8's.

see you at the garden!!

"Rich Lands at Lands Audio is the US AKG guy. Not sure if thats what he needs though."
Why is lands so much more expensive?

I really see a new pair of 480’s in my future

Don't.  They're transformerless.  The ck1's are at their best with the 460's.  Trust me.  I've run the 460/ck1 combo for years......

what is a ck1xs?

The CK1x, 2x, 3x are electret caps designed to be used only with the MK46 extension cable or active cable if you want to call it that. The MK46 cable works with 460 bodies only. The CK1x caps are not the same as CK1 caps.

Edit to add: I now see you may be asking what a CK1xs cap is. No such thing. I think he is just referring to a pair.
