I have a state-of-the-art analogue desk and my own Boesendorfer concert grand and the recording I reffered to above was with a Boesendorfer as well recorded at a studio in Germany.
I get to play with all kinds of mics from all different marques, but I compare them with Neuman 149s and 87s etc. I have just tried out a new range of mics from one manufacturer (sorry, no names here) and they were very good. Almost as good as an 87 or an AKG 414. But almost. Not as good, but almost.
I cannot comment on the new B&K (DPA) mics and I am sure that they are quite good. Back then, B&K mics were almost as good as Schoeps, Neuman or AKGs. But when I record piano, I reach for a 149 or an 87. Back then, it was a 49.
It may just be a question of taste.
