Hi artsonics

It may have been me that mentioned using two K6/ME66's
for stereo as that is one of the rigs I have. In my
case the microphones were both bought second hand and
have quite different serial numbers. They sound fine
when used together for stereo. In fact I had to return
them to Sennheiser as one of the K6 modules was
noisier than the other. While Sennheiser had them I
asked them to give them the 'once-over' as I told them
how I intended using them. They said they were both OK
and would be fine used in stereo. They are after all a
'mass-produced' item and one that Sennheiser will want
to produce a specification that is repeatable time
after time. So I believe that if you were to get
another ME66 and if both are working to
'specification' it will be fine.
I am in fact thinking of getting 2 ME62's as that may
be my best option for two omni microphones. Especially
as I already have the K6 modules, all I need do is
swap the heads over. Looking online over here in the
UK it seems I can get 2 ME62's cheaper than two Audio
Technica AT3032's as well.
