    Good synopsis and breakdown Ty. Thanks!

    Third time is the charm?

    They've had the original Deity shotgun under the Aputure brand name, then the new Deity S Mic 2, what is the other third shotgun which I'm missing?

    "There are some who claim this as the "sometimes" [humidity] problem with Schoeps mics. My own experience with two Schoeps CMC641 is that the problem is not the diaphragm, but the connector rings on the capsule and body. If you regularly unscrew the capsule from the body, you allow schmutz to build up on those surfaces and that causes noise problems. Once I cleaned those contacts and left the capsules screwed on to the bodies, I stopped having noise problems."
    Same here.

    "If you've been using a Sennheiser ME66/K6P, I think this will be a step up for you."
    So would a megaphone ;-)

    Nice review. Thanks for fighting the good fight, Ty. :-)
