It is basically a "better" version of the U67 which is a tube mike.
The German Rundfunk had some technical complaints about the 67 .
Neumann made this updated version called m269.
I A/B d them years ago and found them to be very similar to my ears.
Capsule is the same as in the U87 which is the next generation non tube version.
The newer U87Ai is transformerless which makes an audible difference.
I personally like the tube versions better but having said that: If you compare an old U87 with a U67 using a V76 tube preamp the difference is not that big anymore...
