Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

Maybe Maciek again?

At the moment: Kalliwoda, Czerny and Ries.

But that might change when I discover more symphonies or that the above were not that good, after all.

Maybe not original, but here they are:

1. Beethoven

2. Bruckner

3. Mahler

with Shostakovich very close after Mahler.

Actually, Kalliwoda might rank on my list too, with Beethoven and Dvorak. Although I think Sibelius is more likely.  :(
