    I have all those "stereo" CD versions from arsvocalis (except Il turco), I commented positively on those in the Callas boxset thread a couple times.

    The process is very well done by EMI sound engineers in 1970s, I have a very nice stereo system in my main listening room and the dramatic effect of having a stereo soundstage spread across entire room is really impressive, this is not subtle tinkering around the edges. It sounds quite realistic with even consistent spread and no obvious detail lost on my system.........

    My advice is to just buy one and try it out yourself, price is very reasonable
    , to my knowledge they have never been available in CD format prevoiusly
