    I may check that out. However, I can't imagine it could ever top the Sibelius First from this set. Bernstein recorded possibly the best ever of that symphony.

    I am going to take advantage of the good deals on Linn and other hybrids to take advantage of the SACD player that I will soon get.

    I do believe that our host has sung his praises as regards the extraordinarily high quality of the mastering in this series, along with the remarkable quality of the original audio recordings and performances. I would urge Hoffmanites to grab them before they become collectible.

    Most SACD players are only 2-channel these days ...

    Te SQ of the set has been uniformly excellent and I have enjoyed Haitink's conducting of these symphonies. I completed listening to the sets by Bernstein and Tennstedt last year but still have the set by Sinopoli to listen to after this set ...

    I think I would go for the center channel as well.

    Let us know which ones are the standouts on the Sinopoli set. We will probably be in agreement on the best of the lot. :cheers:

    By coincidence, I was just listening to Haitink's M9 on this newly arrived set.

    I only had time for the first two movements this morning before leaving the house. SQ and performance of this 1969 recording are quite good. Haitink lets the score speak for itself: he observes Mahler's performance indications, and the orchestra is in top form. I will listen to the rest tonight, but the first half is impressive.

    When are the RCO not in top form?:laugh:

    I saw them play Mahler in Philadelphia and they were astonishing. :cheers:

    But you will have to get a preamp with at least 3 channels. The 5.1 surround setup is too cumbersome ...

    Indeed, a composer who originally inspired Chopin that subsequently led to the Chopin Nocturnes should not be missed ... :righton:
