Of course, tonal naturalness, a lifelike sense of instrumental body and weight, air, and spatial dimensionality are all key elements that go hand-in-glove. The SLP 05 brings all of these virtues to the table in a way that brings to startling life, say, the very different sounds and playing styles of Lee Morgan’s, Clifford Brown’s or Freddie Hubbard’s trumpets, or Lou Donaldson’s and Gigi Gryce’s alto saxes. You get the idea. It’s not the hi-fi-stuff but the added awareness of each (and more) of these musicians’ instruments and voices that, for me, make the SLP 05 so special.
