I have run DIN for a few years now with my 480's & have to say it is the best config for 480's IMO. I used to run them XY with Danny doing sound for WSP & was never pleased. As I started experimenting I tried DIN based on J. Elderidges advice, once I tried it I was hooked. I use 90 degree's 17cm for hypers & 8 inches for cards. I use it everywhere & don't even bother with other configs anymore. It doesn't matter if it's in the section, FOB, indoors or outdoors. This works for me. Try NOS, ORTF, XY or PAS if you like, then you'll be able to learn & use your own judgement to what sounds best for your ears.
PS- onstage, I'll run XY sometimes to tighten up the image, good luck!
I know you like, tape for people's approval and stuff, and wave your tapes around like they're your dick...  but even you can't actually think section tapes from philips sound good.

Just currious. What does the DIN setup look like(I also just got some 480/ck61's, so I'm currious as well)
