None in the slightest. Totally satisfied. Happy as I can be with them. Great mics.
And, total bonus,... something like $3700 less?

Moke, I have no idea how you stayed with DPA for so long. After the 2-3 failure I would have said enough is enough!

I have run DPAs in the past. First pair of mics that were actually some higher end mics I got. FOB is good for small/medium size venues. But once you get to arenas/amphitheaters, if you aren't near the stacks. I feel everything gets washed out with the omni pattern. Once I got myself some AT853s and MK4s, I realized how much I was missing running a cardioid pattern for the longest time and didn't have to be as near to a source to pull decent tapes.

Really depends on what sort of shows you run at. I loved to stack tape. But I like having the sense of security that even if I am not in the optimum spot for stealthing, I will have a decent chance at a good pull.

I think the 406x series are really great small omnis, very clean and detailed.  The typical strengths and limitations of that polar pattern apply, of course, but they are awesome when you're in the "omni zone".

DPA's line of modular mics are also excellent.  Fantastic sonically and outstanding build quality.  Various capsules, several pre-amps, and a broad range of cool accessories are available.  Every review I have read has been enthusiastic and I don't recall seeing any descriptions of issues.  Definitely worth a look if you are a fan of the DPA house sound...
