Karajan and Barenboim the best for Beethoven

"I have compared it with the version of Karajan and it really does not have anything to envy to him on the contrary, in certain passages as the second movement seems to me superior. I recommend it to all the lovers of Beethoven and Barenboim."

"Jack, the reason why you are not getting anything out of your sub maybe the format in which these discs have been mastered. I don't have them so I don't know for sure, but if they were only mastered in 5.0 (as opposed to 5.1) then all the bass information would be spread around the main channels rather than routed to your subwoofer. You would have to have at least one set of full range speakers in order to have any chance of hearing the lower range if they were mastered in 5.0. Please contact me via highfidelityreview.com if you would like to discuss further."
Beethoven - Symphonies (DVD Audio) ~ Barenboim

"I bought all of the Beethoven Symphonies by Barenboim (DVD Audio) except for the Eroica. All sound quite good (spacious, clean, and well performed) except for one thing that really bothers me; I hear absolutely no signal coming from my subwoofer when playing these discs. I know that my equipment is connected properly because when I play my other DVD audio discs, this problem does not occur. I have read the other reviews regarding these discs and no mention was made of this problem. I am not asking for overwhelming low-end, but some would be appreciated. Has anyone else out there experienced this problem from these discs?"
