SPL meter is a good thing to have, especially if you spend all day in your space. I need a calibrator for mine though, and of course they're about 3x the cost of the actual meter.

Are the Pro Replicas the same build kit as the AMLs?

I sold my Mu-Tron Bi-Phase to get the Glou-Glou Rendezvous. Zero Regrets!
Damn, that thing is awesome! The Deja-Vu sounds really cool as well...

Thanks for making me broke again

No they're not. The PR's are point-to-point vs the AML's which are PCB board. Some other differences as well. I've never had the pleasure of hearing either so not sure how they compare but for the price of one PR you can get two AMLs. I've spent a lot of time researching them. Both have a solid reputation and (from the word on the street) will put you in the ballpark of an original.

And how is the translation working for you?
Was it a big step up for you?
I actually just ordered the new barefoot footprint. Will be receiving them in March, upgrading from focal solos. Hopefully it's a big step up...

Well to start the year, a pair of sanken cu41, Avalon 737 (dirt cheap 900$us) still can't believe the price! And I ordered the new barefoot footprints, receiving them in March! If I don't like them I'll upgrade to the mm45. Hopefully I don't have to since the mm45 are a little outta my budget
Next is the icon qcon controller in March!

They are simply breathtaking on acoustic guitar.

That's what I thought you were going to say. I've been looking for one or a pair for a while but they never pop up in that good of condition. Awesome find, congrats!

Hey Trev - do you ever find them TOO detailed on Acoustic? I'm favoring my KM86's on acoustic over the KM53's currently. It's a judgement call for sure, but the 5X series sometimes just sound TOO good if that makes any sense....

I'm planning on some head to head comparisons with my VMS over the next few months, there is nothing like in studio testing.

Not sure about too detailed. To my ears they some how have a detailed yet soft quality to them. That may mean they are not be the right mic for positioning something in a busy mix or where you want something hard in your face. But for something that has some space around it, or wherever you want a guitar to sound really pretty, they really float my boat.

I just made the sluttiest purchase of my career so far. I am now the proud owner of an ondes Martenot! While some things might be equally slutty, I'm not sure if anything is actually sluttier.

Now you can be on call whenever your local orchestra plays Honegger's Jeanne d'Arc au bûcher.
