Ambient ATE308 has replaced ATE208?

I remember that in the past the Ambient ATE208 was sometimes mentioned as an option for a figure 8 mic. Perhaps this is very old news (I have been out of the loop for a while), but I can't find any mention of it on the forum. Just now I noticed that Ambient lists an ATE308 fig 8. mic. Apparently as a replacement for the ATE208?

On their website Ambient say:

Comparison with the predecessor model ATE 208: We merged the preamp design of our Soundfish Hydrophone series with a redesigned capsule. This resulted in a warm, natural sound with the perceived noise floor cut down more than half.

Hi Christine (and welcome back!),

It's odd about the supposed noise floor of the new model as all the specs except the sensitivity (now 9mV/Pa vs 12mV/Pa) seem the same as for the previous model. The bass roll-off (to suit use with a shotgun mic in film production) doesn't seem so attractive for nature, music, FX etc. I certainly didn't like of the sound of the 208 vs the AKG CK94, which is why I went for the latter.

Cheers,

Roland
