First String Quartet track - advice?

Hey all! My first post, so hopefully it's in the right place. I've been frequenting these forums for a while now, and gotten some great info, so thanks!

I'm a violin player trying to be able to record my own solo/string ensemble tracks. I've attached the first recording I've done of my string quartet, and I'd love any feedback! My most ghetto of setups:

Room: dry w/minimal soundproofing material on the walls, about 10x14 rhombus kinda shape

ART M-Five into TASCAM US-1641, about 5 feet from the front of the group and 4 feet high

Stereo stuff comes from two condensers set in the walls, courtesy of a Wenger "Virtual Acoustic Environment"...can't seem to find what mics they are specifically.

All mixing done in Audacity, with the stock plugins. Sorry 'bout the thing at 2:49, didn't feel like going back to fix it after the fact...

I have no training in this, but would love to hear what you guys think, and where my weaknesses are. Thanks!
