Which is the best sounding version of Pet Sounds on CD?

From what I've researched, there have been many versions released.

1) 1990 mono CD
2) 1993 DCC CD (rare, difficult to get)
3) 1997 Pet Sounds Sessions Box (mono and stereo mixes)
4) 2001 mono & stereo CD (same as 1997 mix)
5) 2006 40th Anniversary (mono and new stereo mix)

So which is the best sounding version?

There is more to the story than Brian being deaf in one ear. Remember that all their albums from 1963 and 1964 had stereo mixes by Chuck Britz. So, had Brian really wanted to hand in stereo mixes to Capitol for the Today through Wild Honey albums, that could have been easily accomplished. Though, some singles would have had issues with direct mono overdub mixing. Feel free to send me a PM as I'll talk Beach Boys anytime.

How's it going drbeachboy? During the 1965-1967 period, Brian was writing, producing and engineering THE BEACH BOYS' songs onto tape in the studio. Being partially deaf in one ear, Brian was unable to do the mixes himself in Stereo, so he would do the mixes in Mono. As we both know, PET SOUNDS was recorded in Mono. With Brian's Father Murray gone, Brian was really taking advantage of his freedom and independence by experimenting more in the studio. As we both well know, PET SOUNDS, the incredible 45 RPM single GOOD VIBRATIONS and the unreleased SMiLE album would mark as the most creative moments in Brian's music career. I'll send you a PM soon, its great conversing with someone such as yourself, that knows their BEACH BOYS. Take care.
