You've mentioned that Schoeps CS4 mic before but I have still not been able to find it in any of the catalogs. What exactly is it? I'd love to have a mic that I never have to worry about setting proper levels. ;-)

Some of the worse audio you will hear is on the cable channels ... CNBC, CNN, FOX, etc. because they use limiters, automatic leve controls, and EQ . . and they end up with this monotone sound with no life in the voices whatsoever. My audio is 100 times better than these huge networks with their millions.
