I just pictured a robotic Lloyd D. Newell introducing an episode of Music & the Spoken Word. It made me chuckle.

I personally prefer the audio quality, character and emotion in the pre-2013 voice readings, as many of the other posters here have stated. I recently downloaded the newer versions, male and female, to give them a try, but ended up deleting them. They sound too compressed and mechanical, in a distracting way. I'll stick with my older MP3's for now. Just reviewed the official release of the listed changes to the 2013 edition, and as it says, "More than 99 percent of the corrections are in the study aids (chapter summaries, footnotes, Topical Guide, Bible Dictionary, and triple combination index). I don't think I'll miss much listening to the old versions on my daily drive to work.

Any change on this? Would love to have the option to toggle between 2-3 voices. Not enough inflection and intonation in most of the new voices.

There is a way to get the old voices, it's easier on Android though. You can Google installing an old version of Gospel Library, some of the old version still work, you just have to pick an old version that still has the old voices, in this way I managed to get the old voices back. On an iPhone it would still be doable, but it's harder, it would require jailbreaking.

The new recording is really intolerable. I can't listen to it. It's very halted and processed. Each word has that robotic attack right before and after it. It's really painful. Darn it. I used to love listening, but I just can't anymore. I've tried listening to these. I finally had to see if there was a place to post some feedback. Here you go. Bruce Lindsay is still around, isn't he? He did the last ones. Why not just have him rerecord the updates? He was a mission president. I don't think he'd be uninterested.
