John, I will let you know what I think.
#1, I hope the grading is accurate, though Harmonia Mundi's tend to be well taken care of
#2, forgive the few instrumental flubs, do some yoga, observe a 12 hour fasting on political discussions, turn phone off, internet off, lights off. Glass of wine OK.
#3, Crank it up. The mono sound is amazing. The sense of wonder and discovery is palpable. The 3rd was still and oddity back then.
And I've given it several tries over the years. Not sure what it is, but it has just never clicked with me. I'm still liking very much the Gilbert/NYP live recording (in excellent 96/24 sound). The MTT/SFS sounds fabulous in a DSD download (maybe the best sounding M3 out there), but MTT's too fussy for my tastes.
I see NYPO Live has quite a few issues including Sibelius.
