Comments
Imortal Excellent sound Turn treble up on Immortal and GS

GS Almost identical, but slightly less detail and slightly tubby bass.

RVC Excellent sound but some tape hiss compared to CDs.

LM Both MD and SD pitched higher. More surface noise on MD. Might be close to GS at same pitch.

FM Tonal balance not quite right. Lacks lows and presence.

AT Thin, lacks bass.
