With the CO-100K, be prepared for a level of transparency that no other mic out there has.

While this can be a really good thing, it can also be a really bad thing. Why? It shows everything that is good, but it also shows everything that isn't. Are your rooms perfect? Are your ensembles absolutely top rate? If you answer yes to both, the Sanken would probably be a great choice for you. If no, than you may want to consider a mic that is a bit more forgiving.

My omnis here are DPA and Schoeps. One of these days when I get a bit more cash, I'll probably also get a pair of Sennheiser 8000 series omnis (8020). For now, the 2 varieties of Schoeps and the DPA 4006 give me plenty of choices. Both have good and bad points. Get balls and you have one set of choices, high-lift gives another, etc...

Once you get to a certain level, it is hard to go wrong.
