Every time I think I have seen these setup was either in xy or ortf, usually ortf.  I would say try em all out and see what you think!

DIN, see Carl Beck's tapes for confirmation that these mics are made for DIN  8)

And that was the third option.  I was never a big fan of the 480's until I heard them run DIN.  I still think they sound kind of distant to me, but that might just be me!  Have fun, and let us know what you find works best for YOU!

Try them all ;D
DIN is my fave for these. As others have said Carl Beck's panic and Mule tapes smoke! Scott Cervin has also turned out some very nice tapes running them DIN as well.

Try the shure vert bar.  It worked well for me when I ran 480s.  Remember that vertical displacement isn't as critical as horizontal separation and angle.

Enjoy!

I'm in favor of DIN but xy in a shitty room.  Go to a few shows that you are there to learn from (or make sure you have a second source avail.) and try different configs at each set.
listen and learn

Why not complement your AKG's with an AKG tbar. Perfect for DIN and just about everything else, EXCEPT xy (unless you have it modded  ;)).

Kev,

you should be able to do XY with the AKG bar.  you need to run one mic on top of the bar/ one mic under the bar.

and D.

get the Shure Vertical bar (A27m).  and a pair of AT shockmounts (AT-8410).  too bad this didn't come up earlier, i just sold all three of these parts last month as i never use them anymore.   :-\

Your right Scott, my bad. I'm also new to the fact that vertical spacing does'nt make much of a difference.  :)
