Your preferred version of Pet Sounds?

The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds is hands down my favorite album for summer listening.
Which version of Pet Sounds do you prefer to listen to?
The original mono mix? Stereo remaster? Or 5.1 DVD-A?

Is there a version of Pet Sounds that is strictly instrumental? With no vocals at all? That would great because I love the music, but you miss a lot of the sounds with all the singing and harmonizing. Brian Wilson was a "studio master."

I was watching The Beach Boys: An American Family and there was a scene at the start of Part II where they were in the studio, and Wilson's orchestra started playing Wouldn't Be Nice before they laid down the vocal tracks. It was absolutely the most beautiful music.

You'd have to buy the Pet Sounds Sessions box set. It contains several instrumental versions of the tracks.

Mono, even Brian Wilson admits the whole album is a rip-off/improvement on Phil Spector. Mono is the only way to hear it.

OK, so Brian Wilson mixed Pet Sounds mono cause he could only hear in one ear, but why do you guys prefer to hear it in mono?
