Stereophile's compact discs are well known among audiophiles for their excellent sonics and compelling performances and repertoire. This ''Editor's Choice'' Sampler and Test CD is no exception. It offers an excellent retrospective of the Stereophile catalog with the addition of test-tracks to help optimize the sound of your system by diagnosing its weaknesses. The musical content is compelling, and very well recorded, focusing primarily on classical offerings with a smattering of early jazz.
