French Horn/Lorenzo Sansone horn

I have a similar double Sanzone #523 US with the B flat on the top.  I looked at the picture of your horn and your slides are set up differently from mine.  I wonder if your horn would sound better with the two finger ringed slides in the middle on the Number two valve with the longer of the two slides on the bottom as mine are.  I also have the slide with the little "prongs" on the B Flat side and the smaller looped slide on the F side. I have been played this horn for nearly 30 years set up this way.  I would be interested in knowing what the correct way is, if my set up is wrong.
