[sound info]

112/75, the marvelous fifth (694.7¢), is 225/224 (7.7¢) below the just fifth 3/2. It often arises in just intonation scales, for instance as the interval from 15/14 to 8/5, or 5/7 to 16/15. Tempering out 225/224 from the scale can be used to make it much less flat, but it is usable as it is, being only half a cent flat from the 19edo fifth of 11\19. Considered as a meantone fifth, it is approximately 5/14-comma meantone.
