I'll keep this brief...
I lost a Beyer M130 and 1 of 2 M160's I have owned for several years. It happened in a bizarre way that makes me sick to even think about.
Now I want a figure-8 ribbon to go with the lonely M160. I COULD just buy another M130, I have about $1K to play with for a new mic...
Just got one. Now I understand Remy's comments on the red dots. I understand that they tell you to align them vertically. What about in a situation where the mic is mounted above something and pointed substantially downward? Is there any problem with this orientation, or just make the dots...

Would it be acceptable to use two Beyer M160's in an ORTRF configuration to record a small guitar group or chamber group? This is the only matched set of mics I have and was wondering if they would be completely useless in this environment. I am saving for a set of Schoeps but it will be some...
I found a Roland M160 Line Mixer on Ebay at a decent price. I cannot find any literature on the product. Has anyone used this mixer that can give me some feedback on it. I would be using it mainly for keyboard i/p's.
Greetings to all on board.
Recently I aquired a beyer m160 microphone. I notice two red dots on the rim of the mike. May I know , what purpose does these red dots serve?
Thank you for your input/ contribution.
