Does the Stellar CM5 still hold up?


I have a Stellar CM5 that is great for vocals and basically any source.
My question is - how do you think it holds up to the newish crop of LDC knockoffs, like the Warm Audio WA47 and 87? Of course the more the merrier, but do you think the CM5 is still a <$1k contender?

I will say this. I have one and it is my workhorse. To me it just good not great. It almost always fits but it does not stand out. I have been wanting to try a few others out myself. The only other mic I have that s better is a 251 clone Luke audio built. I can hear that something special in the Luke mic but it does not work for the situation most of the time.

Thanks for the reply @ sonnycheebs . Has anyone compared the CM5 to newer mics like the WA47 or 87?
