Mahler 5th Outstanding Rec./Denon

Is it just me, but when I`m listening to Mahler Symphonies (to me the 5th&7th, occasionally the 4th&2nd) I always come back to the Denon Inbal/RSO Frankfurt Recordings which to me not only seems to be the best interpretation but has an outstanding sound quality - to me the best orchestral sound recorded I´ve ever heard.

It is said to have been recorded with 2 room mics at the Alte Oper Frankfurt in 1986.Anyone can elaborate on the recording techniques and devices being used?

The Solo Trumpet Player in the 1st Movement is a highlight himself:

and the brilliant 4th Movement

Here`s the 7th with Inbal/RSO Frankfurt.
That`s the one that actually brought me to these Inbal recordings.
Especially the 1st movement always is like an earthquake to me.Also
the last movement.
