    I'm curious -
    Based on the pic, it looks like the 2 pairs of mics are pretty close together...what was your motivation for that? Was one of the pairs missing something? Or did you want a different sound?

    Overall (after listening to the Liszt), I think the sound is smooth and open without too much decay to make it muddy. The bottom end is a tad on the hollow side, but I wonder how much of that is the room itself.

    In all a very fine sounding recording and a nice sounding organ too!

    I did not have any special cause to put up the mic like this. I was only a bit lazy and corius to try some thing new. And a like the sound thats come to my ears...

    Distans between the mic is 31.5 inch for the MKH 8020 and 39.37 for the Gefell M296.
