Performance:   Sonics:
I just listened to it again and it's stunning at many levels: the packaging for starters is exquisite. The sonics are one of the best I have in my collection and the music is deep, flowing, beautiful and completely different to your normal diet of Jazz, Rock and Classical. This is Chniese classical music, mainly featuring the erhu. The erhu has a very rich tone, testing many aspects of your system in midrange and treble region. But forget about all that audiophile stuff - if you enjoy music you owe it to yourself to try this disc and be surprised !
