As a person who spent several years working as an engineer for a classical radio station in Los Angeles, and as an avid fan of Beethoven symphonies, I have heard many performances of Beethoven's Seventh. I have to say Steinberg's interpretation is up there with the best I have heard. Most excellent! I remember Command records from my high school years. What a great idea to record on magnetically-coated 35mmfilm. I remember a few classics, but, as this was the early 1960's, a lot of the Command recordings were bongo drums. The quality is exquisite. I have listened to the DSD 128 and the DXD recordings, and I must say I slightly prefer the DSD 128 recording. This is special, and I look forward to more Steinberg Beethoven!
