I picked up my first two discs today and will be listening to them this evening: 1. Fritz Reiner and Chicago Symphony Orchestra - Mussorgsky Pictures at an Exhibition. 2. Fritz Reiner and Chicago Symphony Orchestra - Bartok Concerto for Orchestra Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta. They sound very good in Red Book but I will report tonight back on the SACD layer. This collection is the first of two classic series based on performances that were captured on analog tape and converted straight into DSD. Like the other series Mercury Living Presence, these tapes were recorded in L-C-R configuration on three analog tapes. To preserve the history and integrity of the recordings, the engineers of both series are keeping the multi-channel recordings straight into the three channels as recorded. The stereo layer is the traditional mixdown. I figure since several of us are classical fans or new to classical that this thread would be a good place to keep the reviews. Please post your reviews as you experience these SACDs.
