    Just wanted to get some opinions, particularly from those who do classical recordings, as to what your favorite main pair configuration ( XY, ORTF, M/S, AB, Decca Tree, Blumlein, at al) is & why.

    I happen to love a slightly wide (approx. 20cm) ORTF with wide/sub cardiod pair. I have always gotten my best results with this setup in terms of dimension & good soundstage definition.

    Thanks for playing :D
