This was my first encounter with these recordings so I cannot compare or judge them against other incarnations. To my ear there sounds as if there are at least two "layers" of noise; the initial radio transmission hiss and then the scratch and rumble of the recording medium.
My sense is that the SA-CD carrier if anything reveals more of this extra noise than might have been previously apparent so in effect detrimental rather than beneficial. But the performances...... all is forgiven...!
