Just a quick heads-up to say that this set is every bit as wonderful as the other; admittedly the music isn't quite in the same league though.

My copy is on its way. Thanks for the preview.

Thank you. Not released in UK yet.

It's good to know that this is as fine as Mackerras's last outing with the late symphonies which I found both musically and sonically superb. I would also be interested to know how, as a UK resident yourself, you managed to get your hands on this ahead of the rest of us Brits who've had it on pre-order for some time now. Not that I'm jealous!

Linn send me a copy of their SACD's to review - what a hardship!

Fair enough - lucky you!

A definite digital sheen on these. Unnatural-sounding and not very pleasant. What a shame. They are so good in every other way. PN, don't you hear the digital glaze? How come five stars for sonics? Undeserved!

Should sound pretty good in stereo. No ITU mic alignment.
