    Didn't work for me--just a lot of soulless hammering. The sound is pretty thin, too. (At least it's easy to get rid of it on Qobuz!)

    Two years ago I saw Josh Bell in recital. I forgot who his pianist was (might have been Jeremy Denk), but he sat staring at his tablet and poking at it. Bell finally turned around and the pianist shrugged, picked up the tablet and walked off stage. Bell held up his paper score and said, "This...

    His tone can be a little scratchy, but these are vibrant performances of Violin Concertos by Locatelli, Leclair, Telemann, Pisendel, and Tartini.

    The colorful orchestrations are reduced to black and white (quite literally!), but these pieces are enjoyable in their own right in these renditions. Superb playing and very good sound.

    Absolutely stunning.

    Surprisingly low-key performances, especially by Ricci, and decent but not great sound. All in all, not an essential purchase.

    Wonderful playing and sound.

    My Prime Signature

    Mine too. Oh, I suppose one of the better Transrotor TTs would be nice, but there are diminishing returns. At some point I'll need to replace the cartridge, but that's about it. (Sure, this would be heavenly... but at $150,000...I don't think so!)

    Bought a mint copy of this German Decca LP set today for $2!

    Listenable but not essential.

    One of the best performances IMO. A very good sounding LP and would be great with a little more bass heft.

    My Prime Signature

    This thread doesn't seem very active, and since my last post, I upgraded to a Prime Signature with an Ortofon Cadenza Bronze cartridge. The improvement over my Scout/2M Black is astounding. Deeper bass, more details (with less surface noise), deeper/wider soundstage--you name it! I no longer...

    Simply copying and pasting still works!

    Nope! That doesn't even work for me!

    I just copied it and pasted it without the "Drop Image" feature.

    Good tip--thanks, Bob! Let me put it to the test: That one worked. Well, at least I know a work around. By the way, that's a wonderful recording...and I did listen to it today!

    No. 21-23. The more I listen to it the more I like it..
