Just tried it with the acoustic bass guitar. The sound is very nice,
and with only using one AT2050 in cardiod mode at that.  I will try the
mid/side thing eventually.

Still wonder what the purpose of the VU meters is.  The owner's manual

"Use the analog meter to view the operating level by depressing the
switch under the center of the analog meter."

But there's no such switch.

Replacing the tubes is not a priority for now although thanks for
mentioning it, will try it later.

The colours that can be extracted from instruments is amazing.
