I've been kinda' looking for one of these in Pawn Shops:

New at $200.00 seems a little much for one mic and I've looked at kit options, for the buck is a better deal but that is a $500 buck or more. LOL!! And most of the time I'll only be using the D6 when needed. Confused

Not too long ago I talked to a semi-pro sound man that had all his Sure microphone inventory stolen. One of the Music companies in Austin helped him back on his feet with a time payment plan and selling him Audix microphones. He said, although they have good mic's he would never go back to Sure. Personal preference? Probably!

Audix make good gear. I have to agree though, that mostly Shure equipment is over-rated. The SM57 is a fantastic work horse microphone and the Beta 52 is fantastic kick mic, but a lot of the rest of their line is somewhat lacking compared to the rest of the market. AKG make IMO better products at the same price as Shure, and RODE make good microphones to that might be worth looking into. The RODE NT5 overheads are good mics if you don't want to shell out for the more expensive options (such as the AKG C451's).
