HI, I own a At2020 and Just purchased a CAD trion 8000. I tested them side by side on a Focusrite Preamp and the Mics sound nearly Identical. I also recorded me singing into both mics at the same time and thay have a nearly Identical sound through my monitiors.Iwas hoping to get that wow factor from the cad But it seems the at2020 is right there. I am new to this But it looks as the cad will be returned tomorrow, as I wa s looking for a colorful tube mic with better sound than my at2020(Cheap bottom of the line Audio Technica) any replies appreciated. Thanks.
