Hi Grant,  
Thanks for info. I guess the reason why I like the idea of MS is the more 
focused centre mike supported by adjustable stereo ambiance from the sides. I 
could even imagine a mono parabolic centre with side ambience support. But 
whatever system I use I'll make a wind protector (lots of good ideas in the 
archives) - I've already got one of the Indian blimps for more mobile listening.
