Was just checking and they no longer
list the MHK80, just the MHK800.  Also checked FullCompass, which
just cut over to a new website (uck), and they don't list the MHK80
any more, either, but the they show the whole series as "special order".
I take that back, Full Compass doesn't even list the MHK20, 30, or 50.

So I could get a pair of 800s for a tad over $5K.  For a bit under
that I could get twice as many mics with lesser specs and fixed pats.

But is sounds like from Rob's evaluation that 80/800 is the ultimate
headroom figure-8, even if it does have dual diaphragms.  And maybe
it's the ultimate omni, too.
