Hey all. I Have a hard time deciding if i shall order the MKH 8040/MKH 30 MS rig or not. Today i record most of my stereo ambiences with NT4 in a blimp into my SD702. Actually i think this sounds really good. Sometimes the XY is a bit to narrow, but it works good simply to widen the tracks with different plugs in post. I also often crisp things up to get it to sound more like the Senns. I know it's noisier than the MKH series, but i rarelly have problems with this, and if i do, it's also possible to fix in the studio afterwords in most cases.
I use it for film, TV, CD releases, (music) and for various stage work like ballet and theatre. I have the money to buy it, but how much will the quality on my recordings improve? I know some of you have used both, so this goes to you guys. Is it worth the extra money, or can i get close enough with what i use now? How do you feel about the difference in clarity and details of sounds being picked up? Do you also find other useful uses for the mid mic, like foley, indoor dialogue etc? (MKH 40 or 8040)
Hope you're not fed up with questions about economic VS expensive gear :)
