Which...is exactly how I'd heard kidvybes explain the difference between the CM5 and CM6. Soooo....it stands to reason for him to make the CM6 and M9 comparison. Follow?
So cut the guy some slack.
Would you draw the same conclusion and buy either mic on that comparison? He bought a CM-5 and immediately put it up for sale, which he has every right to do. He likes what the M9 does on his voice, which is great. But just because the CM-6 has kidvybes definition of sheen to it and the M9 has gutarboy's definition of sheen to it, doesn't mean they're anything alike in the rest of the spectrum, or even have the same top end at all. Follow?
If he owned a CM-6 and an M9 and had extensively used both, then yeah, he could speak with some knowledge on the subject. But speculating helps no one, you've been around here long enough to know that.
You're right though, I'll try to cut him some slack. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, no matter how uneducated it may be.
