Chopin, Liszt, Debussy: Piano pieces - Miyuji Kaneko          (1 of 2 found this review helpful)
  June 14, 2014

I would like to bestow my own title of "SACD of the Year" and "Records To Die For (all time)" for this disc. This has superior interpretation from Maestro Miyuji Kaneko as well as state-of-the-art recordings done by Exton, commissioned by Esoteric Japan. The comparison between the two microphones ... more

@Fugue: please refer to Dave's listening notes/short technical details on this recording. This is as close as you can get to the original master tape.

I am quite familiar with the sound quality of that Studer A-80 RCMk2 and this digital version comes very close to that analogue ... more
