poor audio a painful listen on headphones

no offence to the cast but audio levels could have benefited from the attentions of a competent engineer

It works well

This is a good, old school, rendition of the play; by old school I mean in the Gielguld style of declamation: clear and emphatic. Not sure what production issues the other person complained of, I found it worked well and suited my needs. A good choice if you don't want the Arkangel version.
