If you want a good sounding recording and want to save some money, use the =
NT5's in an orft arrangement.
You'll get a more "spacious" sound then with a m/s set up. Sure the theory =
says you'll have a greater chance of mono summing issues but try it out in =
practice and see what you think (mixed with your music). BTW: a lot of clas=
sical music is recorded ortf, seems to give a wider soundstage but still so=
und natural.

If you're still keen on m/s you'll find that a fig8 doesn't tend to come ch=
eap for a quality one...

Don't forget that you'll need some sort of wind protection, the foam teardr=
op most mics come with is a waste of time outdoors.
Try this one, not cheap but works.

BTW: B&H tend have the lowest prices, follow up customer service can be the=
 down side as with all box retailers..
