I have both, but haven't used the N/D 868 yet.
I bought a few of the EV PL-series drum-mic kits,,, the 7pc kit with a PL-33 (kick) four PL-35's (toms/snare), and a pair of PL-37's for o'heads.,,,, and I also bought the 5pc kit ( 1 PL-33 and 4 PL-35's). With the PL-33's, I got a very good kick sound, right out of the box, and I've been quite happy with the PL-35's as well.
A few years back, they were giving these things away. MF had them on their Stupid-Deal-Of-The-Day for $99 I believe (5pc kit). The 7pc kit, last time I looked, was going for $649.
The N/D868 seems to get some very good reviews for kick, as well as bass-cabs. I've also got a Senn 900-series kit (e902's (kick), 904's (toms) /,e905 (snare) w AKG C-451b's for o'heads, which I bought for studio use..
