i personally record a song every day so i could justify $6000 if only i could _afford it_
i am of the school of thought that the Red B with R6 / R7 and even R8 is worth twice what they are asking for it. haven't used the Type A. if i do upgrade my vocal mic, then next mic will have to be a serious investment to improve upon the sounds i can get now with the modular capsules (imho).
i am blessed and thankful -- my 'studio' is just my bedroom, so this setup is more than adequate for my true needs. when i get a record deal i will invest in better stuff
and War is an awesome guy who helped me a lot in my purchase.
