    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 :D s looking for a colorful tube mic with better sound than my at2020(Cheap bottom of the line Audio Technica)
    any replies appreciated.
    Thanks. :D
  2. Hi, Tim. Would you mind posting the clips that you recorded? I can't imagine these two mics sounding all that similar.

    You're probably dealing all with the same Chinese capsules?

    Mediocre condenser microphones all sound the same. Cheap. Like me.

    Try an SM58 for vocals. It'll sound better.

    With 6 you get egg roll

    Never Mind I came home this evening and attempted to fire up the mic and the power supply to the mic was dead. so it looks like I had a defective Mic from the get go!!!! When I get a new one I'll let you guys know how that goes. This mic only had about 2 hours of on time before it died.

    I have a AT4050, AT4033, and a TLM103 and the CAD Trion 8000 blow them a way given its warmth.

    I have the Trion 8000 connected to my DM24 with no effects or EQ. If it sound this transparent with a DM24, you can just amagine what it will sound like with my Focusrite Green Three or Liquid Channel preamp.

    Do any one hear what I hear? Look out AKG and Neu
