My Aune x5s player only plays DSD64 format. DSD128 ordered in error.
The first movement of this recording seems to lack too much detail - a little too muffled sounding - likely attributable to the age of the original tapes. But part way in either I became accustomed to softness or the tapes improved, along with the detail. At that point it gives a real "you are there" illusion despite lacking the ultimate detail of modern DSD recordings. In fact, it is even better than many modern recordings, perhaps because of the original miking technique used or because the sound is closer to what you would actually hear at the symphony. Regardless, recommended if you aren't a detail freak and you just want to sit back and enjoy an good performance. Keep the "Pure DSD" recordings coming!
Title: Symphony No. 4 in A major ('Italian')
Symphony No. 5 in D major/D minor ('Reformation')
Artist(s): Charles Munch conducts the Boston Symphony Orchestra
Recording Info: Transferred from a 15ips 2-track tape
Date of Recording: 1958
Producer: Richard Mohr Recording Engineer: Lewis Layton

Note for the DSD files: DSD has limited editing capabilities. To keep it pure DSD with no PCM used, We had to allow some blemishes to remain from the original tape source that would be normally edited out in a PCM release.
