Comments
I won't listen to any other performance of this piece. Absolutely incredible!

Immortal Fake stereo but best sound with mono and treble all the way up.

GS Some coloration and not quite as natural as Immortal with treble boosted.

LM Excellent sound but not as much dynamics as CDs. Tonal balance similar to Immortal with treble boosted.

AT somewhat muffled sounding.
