Advanced Audio_CM800T_Mod
« on: May 07, 2020, 01:29:18 PM »
I've bought the CM800t from AA and they will mod it with custom part.

I ordered the HK-67 capsule from Heiserman

And was thinking about puttin a transformer from AMI FUNKENWERK. Wr just need to figure out the dimension that will fit.


My question in regard of transformers is the fallowing:

is it worth upgrading Advanced audio Transformer for a better sound ?

Did anyone did this type of mod and had improvement sonic quality ?

Wich transformer would you suggest ? (looking for high quality component).

Ps: the reason I chose this approche is to obtain the best capsule sound i could find (for a c800g) clone, with a good transformer for a good low end and all that with the expertise of Dave Thomas from Advanced Audio.


Thanks for your suggestion

thanks for the info


Looking for that rich bottom end, We are currently looking for a matching transformer that will fit inside the cm800t body. Just waiting for the dimension.
Finding one with the suggested spec  is not a problem. Wanted to try the BV11r from AMI, but it wont' fit :'(


 I truly trust Dave knowledge. Realy cool guy and open mind to do this mod on my mic.

Anyways, adding the transformer is more of a luxury thing since I'm looking for <<that>> sound.

Would be happy to post sound exemple once my mic's build

Yeah


thinking about it. I know he make some excellent sounding mic...hard to judge these nuances without audio exemples.


But would people jduge the AMI transformer (in my case the t13) as superiour to what's in the market right now ?
