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?

I didn't know there were that many versions of Pet Sounds. I'm a fairly big fan of the Boys Pet Sounds and onward, with or without Brian. I have the Smiley Smile/Wild Honey and Friends/20/20 remastered 2 for 1 CDs, and I plan to buy the Sunflower/Surf's Up remaster as well.

I have a question. I downloaded a copy of what I thought was SMiLE (2004) that has a version of "Surf's Up" that I love, but it doesn't seem to be from an official release that I can find, since it clocks in at 5:15 minutes. Does anyone know where this came from?

For what its worth: I have three version of SMiLE:

-A 1992 bootleg on the Vigotone label,
-The 2004 version of SMiLE with re-recorded parts, which is credited to Brian Wilson and not The Beach Boys,
-The official 2011 2- or 5-disc "SMiLE Sessions" release, which consists entirely of original 60s Beach Boys recordings.

The versions of Surf's Up on the official 2004 and 2011 releases are both a little over 4 minutes. The version that appears on the 1992 Vigotone bootleg runs 5:15. So what you have is probably a bootlegged version. (Either the Vigotone bootleg, or another bootleg - I understand there were many.)

Interestingly, that bootleg has a 3:33 version of Good Vibrations that I prefer over any of the versions found on the 2011 box set - even though an entire disc of that set is devoted to different takes of the song!
