SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high resolution format such as SACD.

- Two-channel SACD layer only, to secure enough reflectance and not to compress DSD file.
- Label of the disc is printed with a special green ink called 'Onsho Shiyou,' which minimizes diffuse reflection.
- Carefully selected master audio is used, from existing DSD files to newly converted from analog tapes.

Every Good Boy Deserves Favour is the best realized of the Moody Blues' classic albums. The lush melodies and the sound of Michael Pinder's Mellotron were never richer, and the guitar pyrotechnics on pieces like "The Story in Your Eyes" were never more vivid. "Emily's Song," "Nice to Be Here" and "My Song" are among the best work the group ever did, and "The Story in Your Eyes" is the best rock number they ever cut, with a bracing beat and the kind of lyrical complexity one more expected out of George Harrison at the time.

Made from the remaster tape

As far as I can tell. Has the booklet from the 5.1 SACD mentioning two bonus tracks (that are not present).

A bit shrill at first, mellowing out. The bass instrument is very lively in the mix! I compared the last song's "astronaut breathing in space" to the 5.1 SACD, and there's clearly a lot more separation in this version between the breathing and "twinkling sounds" around it. I think I prefer the 5.1, but there's a "chunkier" sound to the guitars if you have to have the stereo version.

I'll say, play this for parties, and the 5.1 for when you are sitting comfortably in the sweet spot. . . .
