VICS turn down treble and up bass then best tonal balance. Most natural strings and brass.

RVC Same as VICS with bass at 3:00 and treble at 9:00

GS excellent but not quite as nice as VICS (in mono) or RVC equalized.

Immortal Fake stereo. Identical to GS in mono. They forgot to add the reverb and filter the highs.

Both CDs have variable noise reduction.

AT very close but slightly distorted in climaxes.

LM Similar tonal balance to GS but limited dynamics.

T/L Heavily filtered highs.
