Test (check, reference only):

Hi-Rez | DVD-A & Blu-Ray Pure Audio
Multichannel | Opera
Audio Recordings

Testing only (sound quality - dynamic range - reference purpose):
[Daniel Lanois - Producer - 1984 - LP/CD - From the album Secrets and Sins]

Very poor sound quality, not surprising from the year 1982.
The only grace (small redemption) is the producer, Daniel Lanois.
But he couldn't create any miracle @ the time with the recording tools available.
That particular song has some quite unusual special sound effects, immersive, like coming from behind, from a stereo recording, a tour-de-force sort of.

Test #1 (checking attachment - size):

Test #2 (same):
