Interested in this comment Greg. Have you found from experience that the NT6 sounds noticeably better than the NT55, especially when using both with the NT45-O omni capsules (as would be the wise capsule choice for organ recording)? I'd have thought the self-noise differences of 15dBA for the NT55 vs 19dBA for the NT6 would be much more significant.
