    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

    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.

    I have a Microtech Gefell UMT800, which is a SS multipattern mic using the M7 capsule. It's one incredible mic. A real Neumann.

    the umt70s is one of the best mics in my collection. it is rally sooth sounding the m7 has a nice clear hight end but tis not spitty sounding like my 414. i have used it on vocals and guiatars and got a second one so i oculd use them for drum overheads.

    Thank you both for your replies. The UMT800 is also very tempting, although it is more expensive.
