Nevaton MC48 Large-Diaphragm Stereo Condenser Microphone

The MC48 seems like it would make a great addition to anyone's mic collection.
I plan on obtaining one of these soon and doing a full review on it.

From their product catalog:
"The Nevaton MC48 is a large dual-diaphragm stereo condenser microphone with transformerless Class 'A' electronics. It produces an incredible spatial representation and can be used as a main microphone for recording orchestras, chamber ensembles, or pop concerts. It is great for guitar and drums as well as ambient field recordings. It is also well suited for applications in radio and television broadcasting as well as for live concerts and studio sound production. The microphone has an excellent transient response, very low self-noise of 12dBA, and sound pressure level of 135dB. The two large 25mm diaphragms, placed one above the other, can be simultaneously rotated to provide variable stereo width from 50° up to a maximum of 140° and are capable of advanced, adjustable cardioid functions in mono mode. The ultra-thin and gold-coated diaphragms are made of 3-micron polyethylene-terephtalate film and give the MC48 the brilliant and transparent sound it is famous for. All capsule components have passed a special artificial aging process to guarantee long-term stability.The internal construction is elastically mounted to attenuate vibrations and reduce handling noise. Additionally, the capsules are fixed on special dampers to further reduce mechanical noise."
