Neumann KM A / KK184 vs. KM184

Has anyone compared the relatively new KM A series mics with the KM180 series?
IIRC I've heard some comparisons where the KM D mics sounded significantly different (better) from the KM180 series. How about the KM A?

Me and my colleagues use the km184A extensively (classical music recordings), as spot mics for piano, percussion and winds. It replaced the numerous km140 we have had for a long time. It does sound better than the regular 184 : more body, more reach and more depth. I do think that the regular 184 is a fine microphone, but the kmA is better. More definition and more articulation in the mids.
But as with everything, you have to hear it for yourself.
