Naxos pitched 1.2% fast.

Almost identical sound on FM and Naxos, excellent.

Set treble to 5:00 on FM then very close.

Excellent sound on FM EQ 0 0 0 0 0 -4 -8 -10 -4 +4.

GS and M&A are both good but don't have the dynamics of FM.

NE Filtered not as good dynamics

ATS Muffled and muddy but I must admit a fondness for this disc since it is where I discoverd this, my favorite Eroica, although all other Toscanini Eroicas are great.
