Earlier in this thread the Lauten Audio Oceanus got some decent love, then it disappeared in later comments. I'm wondering if that is due to technical problems with the mic. I read a complaint that said the Oceanus went through tubes at an alarming rate. No biggie...complaining about stuff is probably 3/4 of the entire internet. I wanted to buy one, and I found one locally. The guy said it was mint but needed a new tube and he would include 3 extras. I balked, thinking that he probably fried it somehow. Now there is one on Reverb, and it has a problem with bad tubes every few months. Three instances of problems shouldn't kill off a mic model, but I don't want to deal with constant tube replacement.

Does anybody know if this is a diagnosed problem?
