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?

Wow, I was not aware of the 2006 Mono remaster. I checked the booklet and Linett is correct; there is no mention of this anywhere, except for page 17 that says "CD tracks 1-13 2006 Capitol Records, Inc.". I will say this, upon re-listening to the 2001 and 2006 mono versions, the 2006 version does sound better, but not drastically. As for clipping/compression, Mark Linett has done a very fine job of remastering the whole Beach Boys catalog. He put a lot of care and attention into remastering the catalog and you will not be disappointed in the sound quality.
