A plethora of retained surface clicks necessitated very light de-click (@1.3) except for the better transferred/livelier Wagner.  These are not really to 'EMI standard', nor Decca's 1950's dubbings of Beethoven 5/6 (Schuricht/Kleiber) due to rather heavy filtering; so a slight treble increase didn't improve matters too much...      EMG reviews, 1947/8 >>>
