This technique involves two figure-of-eight microphones, parallel to each other and spaced 20 cm (7.87 in.) apart.
- This technique seems to be mostly used for an orchestra or chamber ensemble.

Link to an article about this, which includes four PDF's on the subject:

Right up my alley. I'm always interested in stereo micing theory and techniques. Some very interesting reading. I especially like the link for the page that has the calcuations -- very, very useful.
