Piano stereo recording comparison, guess it which is which

I think this is fun. The first one answer it right will win!
There are 8 microphones setup. If you can tell which clip is which setting, the first one got the right answer will win a pair of B9audio microphones.

Uncompressed audio file can be download here:
190404_PF_guess.wav - Google Drive

Same recording, different clip. All microphone setup is shown. You can take this as a reference to make a better guess.

In case you want the uncompressed audio file, here is the one:
190404_PF_Stereo_Debussy.wav - Google Drive

FWIW, I was able to download the wav file from the Google drive link in less than a minute...

I think it is a fun listening test but, alas, I don't think my hearing is reliable enough to win the prize. Thanks for posting 9sbean. I sure hope it will be one of us GS who wins the prize and not one of those shady types over at TS!

This is where the Google Drive link in the first post takes you: 190404_PF_guess.wav - Google Drive
It took about 45 seconds to download at 5.5 MB/sec on my very ordinary internet connection.

Not too many people answer the video. The first one answer it right will win this gorgeous B9audio stereo microphone! The FSM, flexible stereo microphone can be re-configured by changing the capsule and support for other stereo method.

It is a challenge. But there're also apparent differences you can tell.
I like this fun game. If I am not the one did this, I cannot guess them right for sure.

here are pics and a Blown up view of the Area .. just before the First Section of each Mic Pairing .. and in the middle between the two sections ..

here are a couple pics:

for Clarity - these Sounds are NOT in the Piano Recordings - BUT InBetween ... and these sounds are ambient i think .. maybe the movement of the Piano Seat as the player adjusts just before starting OR something else in the room .. i will edit them out so i can listen without this weird thing that sends my Brain to "SQUIRREL" !! hah .. surprised no one else has brough this up .. to me it is distracting right at the Time your Brain is Ramping down out of the last Mic Set !!

i am running out of timeto listen and put my guesses in .. i better get ready to Lock the Doors, trun off the phone and tell the kids to go to the Park, like normal kids and get the Old Lady to her Bridge Match and get on this !!

cheers john

PS - the one that is labelled Location 2 is the 2nd Section sound

I'm looking forward to the big reveal - I want to see how close my guesses were (or how far.) Should be interesting, and maybe even educational!
