Mendelssohn: Complete Concertos - Markiz      (5 of 5 found this review helpful)
  April 9, 2009

First, just a clarification to the previous review by vsoft: He may be right that this may not sound like a good SUPER-AUDIO disc, but neither does it sound like MP3. Actually, it sounds exactly like the pretty good-sounding original PLAIN discs (RBCDs) from BIS. BIS explain the process in the ... more
Beethoven: Symphonies Nos. 3 & 8 - Paavo Järvi          (14 of 15 found this review helpful)

  April 28, 2007

Have you ever bothered to imagine how a 5.1-channel MONOPHONIC disc might sound? :-) Well, here is your chance to find out, though it's not GUARANTEED to be mono, as Membran are not very explicit about any reprocessing the (surely mono) recording has been gone thru. The nylon-sealed carton that ... more
