I use one (Ai) and I can confirm it's a great mic. I've done a quick comparison once with a vintage one and despite the output level (Ai is hotter) there wasn't much a difference to my ears. There must be some, but you'll certainly get more differences moving the mic a few centimeters.
I've recorded lots of vocals with it, thru an Avalon 737 and a tubetech CL1b and it works well. I agree that it can sometimes be a bit thin and sibilant with some singers. That was before I received my SM7b tho…
