No kidding - One of the coolest mics out there. I don't think I've dragged out the 414's since I had a pair of those things.
Long story - Here's a sample file...

It's a rehearsal (so please, no comments on the performance - this was minutes after they got the music).
Keep in mind what was stacked against this recording -
* The mics were grid mounted, around 16 feet high, 8 feet apart, tilted in towards the condutor's position (very unnatural stereo image). Right over the string section.
* The kit was around 25-30 feet LOS away from the mics
* The horns and precussion around 50 feet
* Behringer Ultra-Mic 2200 preamp (sorry, that's what was there)
* Somewhere between 2 & 300 feet of mic cable (per channel) to the preamp in the control booth at the upper rear or house
* Sony gen-1 MD recorder from around 1994
In other words, if they sound that good with all that stacked against them, you should hear them with a decent chain...
No EQ, no rolloff (the mic's built-in is fantastic, BTW) no post-processing (except for some bad editing to remove conductor commentary and shorten the file down to almost nothing).
