HD-Vinyl 24/192 (DGG) Ludwig van Beethoven – Symphony No. 3 »Eroica« (Böhm)

Many thanks to a music lover from China for this classic
A great performance. I’ve gone through a number of recordings of Beethoven’s 3rd – on vinyl and CD. This is one of the best; although recorded in 1962, the sound is clear. Bohm’s tempos are right on; the orchestra is tight; the soloists sound pumped and the choir soars. The finale makes you jump! They really nailed it! You never feel like you’re a passenger on a top-heavy ship in roiling seas – which is the feeling I’ve experienced listening to some other emotionally unbridled performances.

Ripping Info


A few words about the way i’ve been cleaning vinyl records and post-processing rips, since summer 2017: After washing and recording the vinyl, I use a kind of mixed cleaning of the rip, which consists of mostly manual rather than automatic de-clicking, (the latter only on unimportant passages, such as end of the groove, beginning and end of the songs, applause, speaking). I often leave the rips almost rough, de-clicking only the silences between the tracks. Never de-noising or/and EQ, as unfortunately some do. I prefer to hear a bit of quiet noises of the clean groove, that contain something of the music, rather than generate clinically clean files that may, eventually, sound a bit dead. If you do not agree, do not download my rips and buy instead digital files or CDs.
When I listen to music I “don’t hear” any noise: I enjoy the music 😀
I do not make rips for headphones!

  • Software: iZotope RX 5 Advanced, Adobe Audition CS 5.5, Twisted Wave 1.18
  • Very careful de-clicking with iZotope, significant clicks manually removed, never de-noising
