Could you elucidate the balance issue, I find the stereo good, but the strings too forward and the wind desk recessed. Also the brass not punchy enough. I am not sure whether this set is as hard driven as the 1960s set and you can't really compare those two. But on the other hand I think a comparison between this 1980s digital set with the 1970s analogue set is valid and very interesting: colliding sound worlds as it were. The irritating thing is that all the sets have many good points so it's easy to just get thd three cycles - and then the REST - and endlessly sample them. Your detailed views about the balance would inform my own listening Regards.
