Schoeps CMD 2U

I've been looking at a few high end mics, including the Schoeps CMC 6 with various mic capsules. Thought it might be interesting to consider AES42. Turns out that Schoeps used to make the CMD 2U digital preamp module that could be used interchangeably with the the CMC 6 preamp (that is, it could be used with all the same mic capsules). But now it's mostly gone from their website, and the online merchants that used to carry it have it listed as discontinued.

Oddest yet, I don't find anything about a replacement. I was hoping they were going to make a full mode-2 preamp. But their actions (or lack thereof) makes it look like they are just dropping the whole digital microphone idea.

So, anyone know what's up with Schoeps and digital? Is the CMD dead, not to be replaced? Or is there a CMD upgrade in the works?

In emails of Helmut Wittek from Schoeps to me in reply of the same question some months ago, he mentioned they're indeed working on a new digital CMD body with mode 2. He wrote that a CMD with Mode 2 will come but has no top priority at Schoeps. The demand seems very low. Maybe you let Schoeps know you're interested.
