"I've been listening to test pressings of Analogue Productions' first reissues of RCA Living Stereo releases and comparing them to original pressings as well as vinyl reissues of the same titles by Classic Records and Chesky Records. … The discs themselves, stamped at Quality Record Pressings — which, like Analogue Productions, is owned by Chad Kassem — surpass in most ways the original shaded dog, Chesky, and Classic editions. … none can match the new version's black backgrounds and overall instrumental focus. More important, the AP pressing has a transparency, a delicacy and purity of string tone, and dynamic punch that surpass the others — including the original (my copy is a 6S pressing), which though still spectacular, sounds less immediate, as if the orchestra has taken one step back. Even at the climaxes of the most complex crescendos, the AP resissue unmasks low-level details, while brass, woodwinds and massed strings have a delicacy and freedom from congestion that rival what's hear in concert. The original does those things too, but with less transparency, and with diminished dynamics." — Michael Fremer, for Stereophile, March 2014.
