I preferred the original 87 in this as well.
I felt the tube was a little "thin".
I didn't check volume levels so.. that might have given the impression of a thinner sound.

I own a older U87 that Neumann replaced the diaphram on. I'm still not thrilled with it...but it has it's purposes.
I have a Big Mic (www.bigmics.com) that has blown everything else I've tried out of the water. It's not that expensive either!

I've thought about having a KH mod done to the U87, but I think with the Big Mic and getting maybe a KAT4 system I should be set on "flavors".

Thanks for the post!
