Yes, it is wonderful.
The Naxos series has an irritating on-screen graffic like searchlights pointed at the viewer. But the sound quality is marvelous. Wit is widely praised for his contributions to this series, notably for his Mahler Eighth. He also has a couple of Chopin discs that deserve notice.
Of equal standing with the Wit blu-ray audio are a Jansons blu-ray video and the Janowski SACD. In terms of execution, they are all superlative. I would say that Wit has the edge with his Slavic choir and soloists. Both Wit and Jansons have subtitle options, which are helpful.
There has been speculation that Naxos are discontinuing their blu-ray series, but the recent announcement of the first installment of a Wagner Ring cycle, to be completed over the next three years, seems to belie that impression.

The Mass has a nasty audio glitch, there is an electronic humming noise thoughout, which made me stop listening soon.

My copy also has a background hum that sounds like an earth problem. I believe that the fault is on the recording. Try Tr. 4.Hum clearly audible in the silences.
