It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

There was a Japanese JVC remaster of the Richter WTC recommended here. . .

. . . sometime ago (with K2 processing - just like the JVC XRCD's). I got a copy myself and I thought it was indeed an improvement over the previous issues I had. I believe these performances were recorded in Salzburg. Not long after, there was also a complete in-concert Richter performance given in Innsbruck, which was said to be better recorded than the blowsy, barn-like sound they got in Salzburg (although Book the Salzburg II was better in this respect than the Salzburg Book I). I also have Richter's in-concert recording in Moscow of Book I only (on the Russian Revelation label). The basic recording is better focused, but it has noises and odd bits of distortion every now and then. From what I read, the Innsbruck performances were probably the best recorded (I haven't heard them), although they've circulated on more obscure labels.
