I Robot was produced and engineered by Alan at Abbey Road Studios and is an audiophile’s dream recording. Transferred on an all-tube cutting system from the original 1/4" analog master tapes at Bernie Grundman Mastering.

So like the other reviewer is a bit soft. I can hear more texture with less tape hiss with the HDAD version. But this version is still great especially if you can't get the HDAD version. It is interesting that this has more tape hiss and less would think that if you are getting more hiss the recording is getting more of whats on the tape.

I bought this based on the excellent reviews for this dad recording. I probably have not heard this recording in over 25 years. My father bought this on LP when it came out and I remember that the original recording was much more dynamic than this re-master. I still would give it a 3 star review but not much more than that.

This is what DSD should ALWAYS be. A Pure Listening Delight. There is so much space around the instruments - the instrumentation seems to float around your ears. And the vocals are crystal clear and up front. Of course, I know it's the mastering that brings this quality to the recording, and can only say this digital file surpasses all CD versions that I have. And gives my go-to vinyl a run for it's money. Love it!!!

very happy

Definitely worth the price of admission.

Hey Bernie, how about doing Supertramp's Crime of The Century and some Zappa on DSD???

This is definitely an excellent recording to demo what DSD is capable of.Especially if you have any of the other formats it has been released/remastered in.I have the MoFi LP from back in the day and I cannot wait to compare the two! I was initially not too impressed when I started playing it,but then realized that I was hearing more of EVERYTHING(including tape hiss)in this DSD file.The music just flows so smoothly that it kind of sneaks up on you.The sound is just amazing,but does not call attention to itself or any particular part of the recording. A MUST HAVE REFERENCE Addendum WARNING/SPOILER ALERT: I am about to commit audiophile heresy here.So if you are a member of the audiophile cult which believes that digital in ANY of its many forms can NEVER match analog EVER. THEN YOU SHOULD STOP READING RIGHT NOW!!!! As good as the MoFi LP is(and it IS)the DSD download just has more of EVERYTHING on my rig. More dynamics More soundstage Smoother sound Your results may vary on your system
