Comments
RVC most natural open sound when EQ to +6 +6 +6 +3 0 0 0 -4 -8 -10

VIC natural balance with bass a 3:00 Pitch to -2 to match GS

AT natural balance with treble at 3:00.

GS not bad, slightly dark and colored but some EQ could help. Different opening dynamics and pauses than LPs.

Immortal bass at 10:00 and treble at 4:00 similar to GS.

LM nice but some surface noise.

FM no bass, pitched fast, poor dynamics. Somebody wanted 30 minutes on a side.
