Lives for gear
 

The AEA and RCA 44 are virtually indistinguishable from one another in sound and construction. The R84 (both passive and active) use the same length ribbon and ribbon material but a different magnetic motor. The N motor is, I believe, another variation on the R84 theme and is lovely but not the same sound as the 44 or 84. It does add an active preamp for increased gain.
All excellent mics but different from one another.
