Don't listen to Claude. This is a fine sounding high resolution analog to DSD recording. Natural, spacious tones, good imaging. Most of all, no CD 'digititis' due to brick-wall filtering. Just a fine all around, enjoyable presentation.

Which may have been the pinnacle of recorded sound, period... analog recording, that is. One of the best uses ...
