Not sure what to think.

It has been re-launched (and expanded).  www.audiogearguide.com

 Looks like the domain Coutant.org is up for sale.  I've always found the site to be a handy vintage microphone resource, if not terribly deep.  Hopefully it’s just a glitch?

Still hoping someone will chime in with the proper voltages for Sony c37as.

I have found that the strength of these large Neumann transformers lies primarily in the representation of lower and lower-mid frequencies. The bigger core just does not saturate so much when high SPLs are pushed into it.

Thanks for your contribution Klaus (now and always),

Makes sense.  I should've noted, and what I personally believe would be a reasonably good CK12 style capsule.

Would the larger transformer (BV 11 style) beef up any attributes of the capsule, make it sound warmer, creamier, other? Perhaps you've already answered to the best of your knowledge above, but I wanted to consider clarifying.

Thanks.

A mic with 2/3 of the core components of both already exists: ELA M251 with AC701.

What is the take-away here? Here, as with every other condense mic, the capsule dominates the timbre and characteristics, all else being equal.
Or, to be more precise, and based on personal experience: an ELA M251/AC701 still sounds C12-ish.

What throws such academic discussion off, and why these comparisons are only applicable when using the genuine articles: your idea of "good M49 circuit" and "CK12 STYLE capsule". None of the aftermarket stuff comes close enough to warrant further speculation what these combinations would actually sound like: even when using original AC701, no one currently makes CK12, BV11 or T14/1 to original building specs.
