    Just bought two of those - will get them next week. They are large diaphragm condenser with switchable characteristics and a rectangular capsule.

    Does anyone know their sound?
    What did you use them for?

    Thanks, Christof

    Aren't they made by PML in Sweden, or by Milab?

    If they are the same model I used about 10-15 years ago, they are quite bright and crisp.
    What they a good for is a subjective question and answer dependant on the situation. BG Vocals, overheads, hi hat, piano, acoustic instruments in general.

    I got some infos from the manufacturer - if someone's interested: Here's the data and graphs.
    Have a look:

    I hope the tubes are still working good - would be expensive if not...
