That's fine, I just think it's uncool to speculate negatively without even trying them out.




Last time I read this thread (which seems an awfully long time ago) there seemed to be a large degree of 'speculation' from the manufacturer on the abilities of the product, poor audio samples on their website and a reluctance to provide serious scientific information to back up their claims against fairly reasoned discussion.

Anyway, the subsequent silence (I'm assuming 0VU was never given mics to try) says it all!

Bob




Whole heartedly agree. Or rather heavy heartedly.

Such massive claims and so many opportunities to validate them with some of the best in the business, but still.... Nothing.

Very disappointing Andy.

I have given up on the ow recordings and assume that either it happened and nobody wants to publish the results, or it just didn`t happen.




Even if they had taken place I'd find it very unlikely that the actual audio would make it out into the public domain, although I'm sure conclusions would.

Don't forget narcoman also offered to try them out on an orchestral recording at Abbey Road...

An honest admission that they don't work and are not worth the money would be a good start.

We've been indulging this guy on this thread alone since October 2008.

I say put up or shut up.

+1, Steve. I think my first impression of him and his mics all that long weary time ago has been proved to be right, in the absence of any evidence to the contrary.
So.
Groundbreaking new technology seems to have become Emperors New Suit.
Time to move on.

All I have ever seen is the cyberdrawing, not a real one, even in a photo.
And frankly I think it is time to draw a line under this one for good and all.
Those of you with long memories may recall my earlier mammoth thread on these mics and all the handbag and dummy throwing that caused.
Can I be the first to say LET IT GO?
We could always discuss why it is nobody seems to be able to groove any more......

...apart from Coldplay, that is.

We groove Ivan, but then we got the wooden mic stands.

I would NOT lock this thread as 0VU needs it to report back if anything happens.

I think best to just let it die - unless 0VU or narcoman actually receive a pair to test and can then report back.

Quite right actually John. Wrong choice of words.

Update....

Unfortunately, I have not yet heard anything, by phone or email or PM, from either OVU or Narcoman - however, I'm sure they're both busy and awaiting a suitable opportunity (or perhaps there has been a technical communication problem?).

I have long since sent private messages to both parties and indicated that I will be happy to visit the UK for such a test.

In any case, if either are reading, please do get in touch (email/phone on my website) and perhaps we can get around to making the arrangements.

Andy

If this is truly the case then I apologize Andy.

It does seem we're all jumping to conclusions about communications that may or may not have taken place between three people many/most of us don't even know.
