very nice

I have had my eye on this mic for a while, and I am surprised to see that there are no other reviews posted here.I finally picked one up about a month ago. It easily competes with other mics in this price range, and the less expensive sm81 (which I have loved for years) sounds weak and mushy when compared to this mic. The RN17 is very clean and articulate sounding, and has a good, tight, low end response. It also presents a finely pinpointed location within a mix when used in mono. I also have used it as the mid mic in M/S applications with a Lauten Clarion and an AEA R84. I'm really liking it.
