Thanks I will defo have a look into these. Reading about the mic now, looks good so far but would like to test it somewhere.
If that's in reference to the CAD then I think the's only two places holding these currently (well Google didn't prove me wrong) in the UK and that's us in the north and the distro itself (based in a shop) in the south so if you can get to either I'm sure a demo would be viable. They are nice through with a sweet frequency response curve that strangly resembles a mic worth 4 or 5 times the asking price, althrough they've never really got a footing in the UK... in fact the only reason we know about them is down to one of Hughs old articles:
It's just occured to me we've got audio recording demos on our mic comparison page at the moment if you want to hear a quick demo : http://www.scan.co.uk/shops/proaudio/microphone_comparison
It'll take a few seconds to load as the thing itself is sizable. I'd compare it against the U87 personally...
