Its a cool observation that because of only recording sound and not video, and the limited range of these recorders, that you don't get the full experience of being at the table. You only get the most prominent sounds, like the cheers, but you don't hear anyone else, which would lead to the 'fake' feeling. It really helps you understand how important the combination of sound and audio can be in conveying a message!
I found your observation of the Recorder's blind spots pretty interesting. I had a similar observation. Seemingly soft sounds are picked up clearly when from particular directions while loud sounds from others are rejected. In a sense, could you say the recordings give a not necessarily inferior, but simply different interpretation of the tabling than experiencing it live? Would you have picked up that soft conversation at the end on your own if you were walking past the tables?
