The AC701 needs to be soldered in to the mic, while the EF86 is socket based. Its also much more expensive at this point then the EF86. So the U67 is quite a bit more convenient when its time for a new tube. Neither one sounds better or worse, as they're both incredible mics, with the 269 having a bit more open top end. I'd choose the U67 if given the choice (and I did).
