The Best Of Beethoven.45
No doubt there's more but we hope that should do for now. Playing the record is the only way to hear all of the qualities we discuss above, and playing the best pressings against a pile of other copies under rigorously controlled conditions is the only way to find a pressing that sounds as good as this one does.

Copies with rich lower mids and nice extension up top did the best in our shootout, assuming they weren't veiled or smeary of course. So many things can go wrong on a record! We know, we've heard them all.
Top end extension is critical to the sound of the best copies. Lots of old records (and new ones) have no real top end; consequently, the studio or stage will be missing much of its natural air and space, and instruments will lack their full complement of harmonic information.

Literary prizes provoke debate. In addition to elevating an author's standing, they promote reading and increase the sale of books. They also draw attention to the forms of writing they assess and raise important questions about the critical, popular, and economic forces that shape cultural value and confer prestige. Bookermania explores these effects through the history of England's Man Booker Prize, which has been given annually since 1969 to the best novel in English written by a citizen of the Commonwealth of Nations, the Republic of Ireland, or Zimbabwe.
The Man Booker Prize, one of the world's most coveted literary awards, turned Possession into an instant best seller, propelled The English Patient and Life of Pi onto the screen, and made a star of an advertising copywriter named Salman Rushdie. The prize was created to change the literary climate of England and to jolt the British book trade out of its lingering postwar recession. In little more than a decade, it accomplished both.
