adding about ck91/93 question....
« on: October 28, 2002, 10:53:55 AM »
I really like the sound of the 480/ck61's.......BUT, I don't have that kind of money to put down right now. I still need to purchase a powerpad 160 battery(400$) and some Audio Magic cables.

Would I be happy with the SE 300B's ? OR, should I just wait 'till the spring, and put down the money of the 480's ?

I like the sound of both. So really, this is pointless, but answer none the less

.........and Bri.......I really do miss the karma points

Mark,

Far be it for me to discourage the purchase of Audio Magic (or other high-end) cables, but when the choice is between microphones that are going to suit your ear better and high-dollar cables, I would always recommend the Mics first.  

By saving $130+ dollars with the purchase of a good cable like Belden, Mogami, or Canare, you will narrow the gap toward the purchase of the 480's.  Perhaps, you could find a pre-owned pair.  

You can always upgrade the cables later, but getting lesser mics than you really want will result in a bigger loss financially and in tapes that you won't be as happy with.

Feel free to email me directly (nutter@sonicsense.com)  if I may be of assistance.

Thanks Marc, glad to see you on the board! I use Canare Star Quad which is great cable. I used to work for a rental company for film and video and we sent out cable all the time that got extremely abused, but it was very rare that they had to be re-soldered or replaced. Oh, with neutrik gold/black connectors, you cant go wrong. Marc can make 'em for you, right? ;)

Cheers
Bri

Though to speak for the AudioMagics.  I Got my excallibur II's from Marc and they carry sound soooo well.  I couldn't be happier!

HAHAHA

I was considering the MG 300's, or the SMS 200's, but for some reason, the AKG 480's really just hit it for me. If by any chance, I could get a pair of KM-140's with the actives, I'd be all over that. BUT..........money money money

Thanks for the input about the cables Marc. I actually purchased my USB Pre from you about a month ago, and I'm loving it !

I might still look into some MG's, but right now, the AKG's are sounding sweet to my ears
