sound was good in my MRANTZ player
I have several planets versions and I can tell you I have never ever heard better version than this one. Performance is great with Zubin Mehta and the quality of recording is excellent. You can feel yourself standing at the place of the conductor and you can hear all of the instruments involved. Also the transfer is very good! There is no tape hiss at all, highs and lows are excellent, instruments are sounding like the real ones. Nice work guys! Associated equip.:Innuos zenith->Ayre dx-5 dsd->VTL 7.5->s400->ml ethos
Good sound and a lovely performance. My only complaint is a little edge compared to other HDTT recordings I have.
Of the perhaps 5 different remastered versions (16/44, 24/96, SACD, LP) I own of this orchestral chestnut - the HDTT is absolutely the best sounding at DSD256. If you love the sparkling playing of Mehta and the LAPO, you owe it to yourself to spring for this one!
