Seeing this thread come back to life surprised me. I was wondering who it was that mentioned the SP828 until I realized that I was reading my own post!
I see that I promised to provide a short sample of an SP828 recording, and that I never followed through with that. So here is a sample of a recording that I made of The Horseflies a couple of years ago using the SP828s. Every signal here - percussion, instruments, vocal, and room mics - all came through the SP828s.
The recording was compressed using high bitrate VBR MP3, so the loss due to data reduction isn't too bad - I think you can get a pretty good idea of the sound (or lack thereof) of the SP828 from this: http://users.adelphia.net/~gilliland/Gray.mp3
BTW, this was recorded on stage in live performance in front of an audience, so it is perfectly on-topic for this forum.
