Is the R84 based on a vintage RCA design? Didn't AEA start by repairing old RCA's and then issue reproductions? I worked at a studio that had some old RCA 44's and 77's... instant Bing Crosby!

It would be interesting to know where the AEA's stand compared to other ribbons that I hear about more (namely Beyer, Royer, Coles and RCA etc...) and specifically each ribbons abilities to do something special. For instance the Royer (championed by Jules and others on this board) is pretty well known for handling high spl gtr without damaging the ribbon.

Happy New Year Marshall, and thanks for the review!
