the above mp3 files are hosted on a server in Israel and so it is 
_horrendously_ slow and unusable from the rest of the world, see for

i.e. 629 bytes per second download speed! It is probably faster to receive 
it on a CD (assuming CD is free).

Anyway having downloaded a couple of files I confirm that this is 
Shmuelov's recording in "file per chapter" version.

The original "file per book" version was produced by myself (ages ago) and 
I sent the files on CDs to Audio Scriptures International and also someone 
else produced a "file per chapter" version which was much more convenient 
so I used it in preference to my original.

But there is also Bartonov's version which is a bit more "crisp" quality.
