nah, your idea led down some interesting paths. I think a spaced pair of c700s could lead to some great results using the techniques I've mentioned above, or the new binaural technique in that study.

And while both mics are top notch, they do have a very different tone. The c617set is super clean, clear and fast, and the c700s has more weight, thickness, not as fast on transients. They do complement each other nicely though (I've used them both on piano blended to taste).
