I'm very curious about this mic. Over here it is not too expensive -one of the few audio products that is cheaper in Europe. I'm very curious about the M7 capsule that MG uses, especially in this case, as it's a solid-state mic. Any opinions would be much appreciated. I have been considering the less expensive AKG 414XLS for convenience and versatility, but I wonder where one could place the MG in comparison with the usual reference points. Many thanks John Stafford PS I'm considering a Great River single channel, so that's what I'd probably be running it through. If I get a pair, I haven't decided on a multi channel pre yet.
