Loud hissing noise

My first disappointment. Nothing wrong with Chopin or Artur Rubinstein, but the re-mastering has left a loud hissing noise from the original recording. I guess it's been cleaned up as much as it can be without losing much of the recording, but for me it is too distracting. Such a shame because Rubinstein's phrasing and feel for the pieces is superb.

Having thought I'd got a bargain I've now blown another £15.99 on Maria Pires' 1996 recording of the Nocturnes for Deutsche Grammaphon (DG 447 096-2GH2).
