    I'm no audio expert but I have the same mic combo you're talking about and think it's first class. My undertsanding is that this mic combo is aimed at about the wedding videographer level or semi-pro type level.

    Why the 'but'? Are you thinking this is a bad unit? Or just that it will leave you some of your budget left over?

    Once you've bought the mic, a softie to go over it, a handle grip support and a boom pole you may have enough left over for a curry.

    I'm sure The Guru will be along in a few moments. He'll put you straight.

    If I had that much money to spend on a mic that is exactly the mic I'd buy.

    I'd also want all of the accessories that Alan suggested, and some more.

    This 'special offer' alone costs near on 560, and it doesn't include a pole, cables, or a camera mount:

    - Sennheiser ME66/K6 with Rycote softie and pistol grip

    I doubt I'd even have the dosh left over for the curry....


    Witty signature text coming soon...

    If you are trusting enough and look on ebay TinyURL.com - shorten that long URL into a Tiny URL then you can get change.

    Absolutely excellent choice. IMHO the best combination at that price.
