Performance:   Sonics:
This is the mother of all SACD samplers, offering listeners a chance to hear a cornucopia of good sound from this premier audiophile label. If your tastes in music are as eclectic as mine, you won't find any snoozers here either.

The notes in the accompanying booklet tell you what you should be looking for as you listen to each of the selections. Since Opus 3 is well-known for its minimalist approach to recording, each of these selections is presented to you in the most natural, unfettered sound possible. Strongly recommended to those who appreciate good sound. My only regret is that Stephen, your webmaster, allows only five stars, as this one deserves more.
