Is anyone using this beautiful looking (albeit expensive) mic for location recording of stereo ambience? I am looking to purchase it for both rural and urban settings, and the noise specs make it seem to be both quiet and dynamic enough for both. I'll run this into my Sound Devices 702.
Thoughts? Other stereo mic suggestions are welcome, but must be able to fit into a blimp or another windscreen for portability and ease of use.
It might sound great but probably not a very practical mic to use in the field because of the big AC power supply. Looks like they made a battery powered supply for it but it looks pretty big too. Not to mention how difficult it might be to find one in good working condition and the cost of maintenance. For what this mic would probably go for there are most likely plenty of modern equivalents in both function and sound characteristics to choose from.
All that being said there are many gear hounds on this site (myself included) that would probably want to give it a go if that mic landed in their lap.

My apologies! I am wondering about the current version, the Neumann USM 69 i. This does not require an external box as far as I can tell and can be put in a Rycote Blimp. Thoughts?
