Well-recorded classical music excerpts, along with a performance by reviewer-bad-boy Corey Greenberg, but the real reason to buy this disc is to learn more about digital distortions and jitter.  Several tracks on this disc will give your ears real evidence regarding the sonic impact of digital recording and dubbing.  A worthwhile addition to the audiophile's library.
