Vaughan Williams: A Sea Symphony - Daniel        (9 of 12 found this review helpful)
  Review by mwagner1962 June 29, 2005

I bought this SACD to see how it would hold up against the fabulous Telarc with Robert Spano. Well, it was an interesting shoot out. The nod for great sound definitely goes to the Telarc, as it is a pure DSD recording, whereas the Naxos is apparently a PCM that was then transfered to ... more
