Well...that gives me two conflicting opinions...?! I couldn't tell much
from the available samples...partly because my PC's sound system is
several miles north of "state of the art"...and partly because 65 years
of abuse and a couple of major head injuries have left me with only
fragments of the hearing I once had (which may be why I find that listening
to 78's as such to be quite adequate...?!).
