The stereo layer is fine.
The surround layer is poor.

Does the stereo layer exhibit a genuine two-channel mix, with discrete sounds left, right and center? The recording was done in 1954 by a German radio station for broadcast purposes. The source tape (or digital transfer from the original tape) most likely was monaural. The "surround" layer was created by running the mono track through digital signal processing to simulate surround. Only commercial motives would justify faking surround for a historic mono recording.

Other Blu-Ray Audio disc releases from this label receive terrible reviews from Amazon purchasers for audio quality.
