The first review of the DC-96C was published in Swedish Pro Audio magazine MM a couple of weeks ago.
How about these quotes?
"It seems obvious that the DC-96C would be an excellent mic for stereo recording - probably just as good as a small diaphragm condenser."
"When I switched to the DC-96C recording I almost fell out of the chair."
"The steady bass reproduction has been impressive throughout the entire test."
"It seems as harmless as Clark Kent when I set it up in front of the different sound sources. But when I turn my back on it and make my way to the control room, it transforms itself - and comes out like Superman in the studio monitors."
"With its silky smooth top, its neutral mid range and a low end that can only be described as gigantic - the DC-96C is an extremely useful tool for any serious recording engineer. A matched pair of DC-96C:s ought to be one of the best foundations imaginable for any mic collection."
