"geil" translates best as "horny", so "geiz ist geil" is a new attitude in germany. It sort of means that the cheaper one can get things short of fraud the more thrilling it is. Your translation hits it very well - greed is great. I think things are not that different in the states.

Interesting is - something for psychologists i guess - the connection between the sexual and the purchase of goods.

I made some comparison of the following microphones:

- BRUEL & KJAER 4190
- Sennheiser electret capsule KE-4
- Panasonic electret capsule WM-61B

It's interesting to see that the frequency responses of the different microphones are quite similar! Probably the B&K mic has better S/N ratio and better specifications, but this test proves that the inexpensive Panasonic WM-61B capsule is quite usable for loudspeaker measurements.

The KE-4 are slightly better than the Panasonic (I use them from long time) but they seem not more in production.

Default Mitey Mike

Decades agoSpeaker Builder had an article on called "Mitey Mike" -- they used an inexpensive Panasonic cartridge mounted in a thin tube -- Old Colony sells a kit linked here:


-- you can probably dig up the schematic and article for the original, there are also some knock-offs and improvements floating out there on the web.
