    Hi everyone, I was thinking of picking up one of these mics and wondering how do they differ?

    Wat is more suitable for recording vocals?

    Thankyou

    The CAD 179 is much beloved, and I found this on ProAudioReview...

    "I set up the 6000 and 8000 and a Neumann U 87 (my usual go-to vocal mic) in a tight cluster, using the Onyx 800R as a front end... On both male and female speech, the Trion 6000 sounded remarkably close to the U 87 working both close (four inches) and distant (16 inches), with the exception of a bit of a bit brighter top end: perfectly acceptable as a contemporary vocal sound."

    Can you post a link to that article? That's an interesting comparison. A bit like how the Studio Projects C1 was received at first. That became a hotly contested claim.

    Thanks for the reply! This is why i was wondering what's a better mic... Everyone that has a m179 seems to love it, but then theres only a few reviews on the Trion 6000 (although all the reviews are very positive).

    And heres the link to the article - http://www.proaudioreview.com/pages/s.0033/t.1112.html

    Well, the M177 and 179 have been out for years which is why there are so many reviews and opinions on them. I have them and they are great workhorse mics. The Trion series is fairly new, although the major positive reviews are on the 8000 and 7000.

    Did you ever choose? I'm in the same argument right now.
