The idea of having two of these to form an M/S would be tempting for the
budget minded people but how bulky would these be in the field?
Then of course you would have to think about suspending them in a shock
mount, and then there is the windscreen, windjammer. A lot of work to desig=
and build one. I don't know, has anyone taken one of these NTIA into the
field, any sound bytes to hear?
For convenience alone, the MKH series is great to stick in a rucksack and
get out there including the windjammer. I would have to see what these
looked like and preformed outside a studio...

Be careful what you ask for:
Eventhough the self noise of the NT1A is lower and the response
between 125-700 Hz can be less prone to exaggeration, the wide,
spatial imagery and flexibility of m-s with mkh 30/40 m-s is pretty
hard to match with 2 cardioids,.. but now we can experiment M-S with
NT1-A and NT2-A or the Peet Cube with 4XNT2-A's.
The NT2-A circuitry looks very similar circuitry to the NT1-A. The
first downside I see is a fair amount less output (16mV/Pa vs
25mV/Pa) and a bit more noise (7dbA vs 5.5 dBA). Doesn't I didn't
see the weight and size info yet, looks longer and fatter. Rob D.
