Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 5 - Mravinsky      (2 of 3 found this review helpful)
  June 13, 2015

I thought I'd review this since no one else has. In short, this is the best sounding transfer of this classic recording I've heard (I have not heard the Esoteric release).

The AP version is softer and a bit congested by comparison. On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd give this release a perfect 10 and ... more
Sonny Rollins: Saxophone Colossus      (3 of 3 found this review helpful)
  March 21, 2011

I agree with the previous reviewer - this is an amazingly good transfer of this classic album. The sound is tight and clear with lots of 'air'. It is significantly better than the Analog Productions release, which is softer and does not quite have the same life-like timbre and transparency. On a ... more
