    I wonder what you experts on recordings and microphones like this recording.
    In my ear the mic is little to far away
    This recording is made in lulea Cathedral
    If you listen careful you will here a HD step on it and disappear
    in the unknown. 1:44 min :lol:

    The doors were wide open because of the summer heat.

    I'm a newcomer to the forum. I enjoyed your recording. I like the music, new to me. What was it? Who played? I think it sounded fine. A full, rich sound. As you say, a bit distant, as from the perspective of one sitting in the middle of a large church. I've been in LuleƄ, but never inside the church. Not knowing the organ, registration or the room saying something about the character of the mic is beyond my capabilities.

    I am very impressed with these microphones and I don't think the recording is too distant at all. I am going to audition these 296S soon myself, to confirm what all the fuss is about. The "S" seems to be the free field equalised ones, for classical concert work you might want to try the diffuse field model.

    Correct - the 296S is essentially a "Flat" microphone from DC to over 40kHz and has a thinner, .4 micron diaphragm. In a diffuse-field orchestral recording situation, it might sound a tad on the "dull" side.

    In either case though, these are beautiful mics!!
