I'd give 6 stars if I could!
by Eric from Columbus, OHI bought a matched pair of these (then called the QTC1) in 2001, and I STILL use them 2 or 3 times a week. For classical recording or capturing full range instruments accurately these can't be beat.... read more [+]r />

Great transparent mics
by David Hendricksen, H & M Recording from Kingsport, TNI've specialized in location recording of classical music (choral, organ, chamber, and orchestral) for over 30 years, always using a "purist" approach: one mic per stereo channel.

Part of the transparency comes from the very small diaphragm. The laws of physics dictate that means a small trade-off in ultimate noise floor compared to larger diaphragm mics. But I've never heard a larger diaphragm mic with the degree of neutral "you are there" quality that these mics offer. The trade-off is worth it for my ears. close [-]

I'm quite surprised by how much level they can take before clipping. You will hear everything with these mics, so you better have a quiet studio! :) close [-]

Great sound, yes! Quiet, not so much...
by Bob Stark from Portland, OregonI purchased these hoping for a very quiet noise floor. That just wasn't there. However, f you are recording in a situation where you don't need absolute silence these are wonderful mic's.

Buy them, but don't expect silence if you are, maybe on more step like the DPA 4006 is needed. (That mic' would get a 5 star rating from me.) close [-]
