Edward M. Long's review of the first AUricle Pasadena Symphony gold CD, in AUDIO, December 1995, last page:
I predict that this Newport Classic Binaural CD of St.-Saen's Symphony No. 3, "Organ," and Richard Strauss's Also Sprach Zarathustra (NCAU-10001) will become a collectors' item. The numbered, limited-edition recording features the Pasadena Symphony conducted by Jorge Mester with Hector Olivera as organist. It was recorded in 20-bit format to hard disk using the Neumann KU-100 dummy-head binaural microphone system. I listened with Stax SR-Omega, Sennheiser HD580, and Grado SR125 earphones; it sounds fabulous on them all. The spaciousness is marvelous, and the low C on the organ pedal is awesome! The gold CD lists for $49.95 and comes in a special case.
