"If you're looking for bargain-priced mic that performs like it costs a bunch more, give the V69 a very close look. You'll be thrilled at how little money you have to shell out, and you'll be even happier at how well it does it's job." -- Mitch Gallagher: Editor EQ Magazine/February 2003
"We tested the V69 against -- count' em -- 11 other popular condensers, ranging in price from $169 to $5,000.00 list".After a couple of hours of testing, both the engineer/producer and the singer picked the V69 over the other 11 mics. None of them had the same combination of classic tube warmth and top-end air of the 69." -- Fett: Technology Editor, Performing Songwriter January/February 2003
"When I set up the MXLV69 large-diaphragm tube mic on a crucial vocal track I was recording recently, I was really impressed with a winning combination of crispness and warmth - exactly what people love Tube mics for. It was a male vocal with a gutsy quality to it and the air on top at around 10K added some nice sheen to the track - all without having to resort to EQ. In fact, the 'N-brand' famous tube and the MXLV69 to me are extremely close in most aspects of performance. The price though--it is outrageously different!" -- Terry Brown: Producer, Rush , Dream Theater, Fates Warning, FM, Mullmuzzler and Bozzio, Levin, Stevens.
