"Gladiator is the test for dynamics, frequency response, soundstage depth and scale, and complex material presentation. The recording is just fantastic as it has all the attributes you listen for: it's clean and uncompressed with super-low bass and delicate high frequencies. "The Battle" will easily test the attack and decay capabilities of even the most serious systems. It is full scale plus! This is one CD to take with you when auditioning speakers. Beyond the high fidelity, though, this CD will take you on an emotional roller coaster that can become addicting. Turn the lights out, turn up the volume, and presto, you're in Rome, unleashing hell on the enemy." - Jeff Fritz, www.soundstage.com
"The recording is also stupendous in every way: dynamically, spatially and tonally. The orchestra spreads convincingly across a Cinemascopic soundstage that produces great depth and maintains appropriate image height. Instrumental focus and solidity are superb against a voluminous, reverberant backdrop. The recording plumbs the depths, soars to the heights and delivers the weight and slam everyone with a big full range system loves to hear. Want to feel your stomach imploding? This recording can do that. But more importantly, the engineer captures accurately instrumental timbers... So if you’re looking for a sonic spectacular to test your audio system’s capabilities, this would be it. On a compositional level it’s anything but spectacular. On an arranging scale of 1-10 it also gets a “10.”" - Michael Fremer, www.musicangle.com, Music 7/10, Sound 10/10
