It turns out that the removed switch holes and traces and the holes and traces for the extra capacitors makes it possible to add the the 1nF capacitor and the 47 ohm resistors without cutting any traces.  ;D

Microphone comparison:

http://www.filesavr.com/nG5waFIW

File name: mic comp.zip

Included are two less than one minute long 44.1kHz/ 16bit, stereo WAV files recorded into a DR-680.
Both pair of mics on the same mic stand, 3" apart horizontally. The files are lined up for easy A/B switching.

One file is a modified pair of CAD GXL1200 (cardioid) microphones.
The other file is a different pair of cardioid of mics.

Which recording sounds better?

I prefer sample A.  It's a lot more open and realistic.  I'm not saying the B sample is muffled, but I prefer A.
