  1. Hi Santa,

    Thanks for the beautiful post (Furtwängler, the greatest of all time !)
    This edition is the japanese SACD edition made in 2011.
    It was made, as many other EMI historical recordings, out of original master tapes at Abbey road studios. (Some of these remasterings are available in their native 24 bits / 96 Khz format on HDTracks).
    What I don’t know is if the CD layer that was ripped for this post is also based on the same remastering as the SACD layer.
    Do you know it, by any chance ?

    Anyway, thanks again !

    Ps : no chance to get the SACD layer rip, I presume ?

    1. Hello, after a short A/B comparison with “Emi références” mastering, I can say that there is some differences : more trebles, less congestioned sound, more ambiance.

      This is not huge, but, yes it seems that this box offers a new improved remastering.

      And many thanks to Wathever to offer it to us !

  2. Only ps3 can rip sacd layer.

    SACD’s sound is really good as LP.


    1. Yes, I know, but thank you, David. I was wondering if someone could have the ps3 SACD rip of this set. Though, it seems pretty unlikely. Thanks anyway !

  3. What a treat! on SACD as well!
    Many, many thanks!

    (Do you own the Ring 1953 with FU on SACD by any chance?) ;-)

  4. This is wonderful.

    Downloaded, unzipped, organized and playing over the system now.

    What a treat this is.

    Thank you Mr. Whatever.
