|Composition||Symphony No. 6|
|This is a tough decision. Naxos and NE clearly from different sources. Naxos has much more air around the instruments with much more sense of the sound of individual strings. Even though there is a low end, it doesn't have much bite. Definite surface noise but not bad. NE has no surface noise but no real loss of highs. Storm has great power and dynamics, but has less sense of individual instruments.
ATS but could use a little low end weight.
Love that storm!
