And many similar superlatives can be written about my sonic experiences while being voluntarily and gleefully drowned by Brendel’s work with James Levine conducting the Chicago Symphony Orchestra playing “Emperor’s Concerto, Piano Concerto, Op 110” and Mahler’s 5th played by the Minnesota Orchestra conducted by Osmo Vanska. Just grand with these pieces whispering confidently that they are superlative in every way. The resolution, Depth, Mid-Range purity, full-on holographic Imaging, Transparency, Dynamics, Impact, Bass definition, and the sustained teasing ephemerality of notes are all there — in spades!! I’m in Sonic Nirvana…and all this without completion of the system with the Boulder pre-amp and Magico Q15 sub-woofers.
