First four are quite good although slightly different in sound.

IMG OK but noise reduction has left some slight coloration. Mark Obert-Thorn transfer on Biddulph has most natural balance but could still use a little better EQ to tame a little extra brightness at times.

IC-6156 is the brighter and more processed than Biddulph.

LCT has crackly surface, somewhat higher distortion.
