Oslo String Quar­tet (2L 135SABD)

Australian HIFI - - SUPER FIDELITY -

The disc is an in­ter­est­ing pair­ing of Schu­bert’s last string quar­tet (No. 15), with one of Beethoven’s short­est works in that id­iom (No. 11), not least be­cause the per­for­mances are fault­less and pas­sion­ate and the sound—as al­ways, it seems—from 2L is ex­cep­tional. You get two discs, an SACD with 5.1 and CD-com­pat­i­ble 2.0 plus a Blu-ray with 2.0 LPCM 192/24, 5.1 DTS HDMA 192/24, 9.1 Auro-3D and 9.1 Dolby At­mos. I lis­tened to the At­mos mix and found it to be a very sat­is­fy­ing sound, ut­terly re­al­is­tic. I also lis­tened to the two-chan­nel mix on high-qual­ity head­phones and found the ex­pe­ri­ence re­al­is­tic as well, even in twochan­nel. With ev­ery­thing from 2.0- all the way up to 9.1-chan­nels, this is a disc that will please all au­dio­philes, ir­re­spec­tive of their equip­ment setup. Highly rec­om­mended. Mel Martin
