Comment by Marcos Abraxas - March 18, 2018 (1 of 1)

As far as this ddition/remastering is concerned, it will put to the test many of a sound system; the SACD qualities are there but, unlike EMI TOSHIBA's own previous 24/96 CD REMASTERING, the overall sound levels are noticeably lower here - the 8th being the 'worse' case.
Provided that one owns, again, a very well balanced sound system, this set will reveal the true essence of these (supposed to be...?) new DSD remasterings. 5th Symphony's polyphony comes across astoundingly well (alongside many not previously noticed instrumental mistakes...), the last movement of the 8th proves, in this remastering howDSD can actually convey elements that sit on that grey area between the subjective and the objective elements of music-making. The 9th, that suffered from that most rare of cases on Japanese remastering in the TOSHIBA CD release, reaches emotional heights that will sound almost overwhelmingly unbearable to faint-heaterds and cardiac.
The 7th really didn't win me over; go for any of the 2 Karajan EMI SACD versions (TOSHIBA'S own better and cheaper than Esoteric's. A final word; await for the single symphonies' release
