The review here by the magus of multichannel gave 4 1/2 stars for stereo sound and 5 stars for multichannel sound. Perhaps this merely reflects his well known preference for multichannel, as, IMHO, the stereo sound should also receive 5 stars, as it did in Geohominid's house review.

Actually, that was an error but I do not see any way to edit/correct it. I have never listened to the stereo track and clicked that thinking it was about sound quality/resolution, in general.

I would rather it say "Stereo - No comment" Sorry.

I was happy you drew my attention to this recording, so thanks for that.

I am glad, then. I have say that I was surprised at the outcome of the 3-way comparison and really enjoyed the process.
