01) ISO image created using sacd-ripper for PS3

02) Edited Master Dff file extracted using SACD_Extract

03) Edited Master Dff file analysed using foobar + foo_input_sacd and DR Meter plugins to find peak track(s)

04) Dff files for loudest tracks extracted from the ISO using SACD_Extract and converted using Weiss Saracon 1.61-27 at 24bit/88.2kHz with -6.00dB gain

05) Non-clipping gain calculated using SoX

06) Final pass conversion using Weiss Saracon 1.61-27 at 24bit/88.2kHz with 3.86dB gain as calculated above

07) Final pass PCM file split into individual tracks (discarding first 41 samples) using track lengths calculated from cue file generated by SACD_Extract

08) Spikes at beginning of first/end of last tracks eliminated by deleting 24 samples and replacing with the adjacent 24 samples using SoX to give the correct track length

09) Finalised tracks converted to flac [level 8] and tagged using tag.exe

10) Dynamic Range measured using Foobar DR Meter plugin

Stereo sonics: top sound

I had thought of leaving my little review at that but……

This wonderful SACD arrived a week ago and, having listened to it quite captivated by the wonderful performances and superb engineering, I was surprised that it had not been reviewed here. Indeed, it had attracted only one recommendation, a negative one at that, though the score has now improved hugely.

Munch seems to make the BSO sound like a top flight French orchestra in that the performances sound so authentic; the playing is sensitive and powerful, the balance superb. There is depth to the recording which is a credit to the minimal number of microphones used, but the balance and ensemble are down to the inspiring conducting of Munch.

Bolero is taken at a tempo which maintains the tension without becoming heartlessly relentless. La Valse's performance has been described elsewhere as a bit of a mess, but I found the ensemble in the rubati breathtakingly elegant.

Rapsodie Espagnole and Images are virtuoso performances; just luxuriate in the music and the sound!

Recommended with enormous pleasure. ~peter @ sa-cd.net
