This is a combination of beautiful voices presented beautifully. This was my first experience with XRCD, and I am trully impressed. Although I know the original recordings were well engineered as I have a couple of the selections in standard CD format, the XRCD format brings them to a new level. I will have to procure a few more XRCD's before I can totally endorse the format, but if this one is any indication of what to expect, WOW!

Brothers In Arms is one of their best records, originally released in full digital, DDD. It has always been a very clean recording. The Brothers in Arms remaster (2000) sounded far too compressed and LOUD. This version is even sweeter than the original. The JVC XRCD format (like Super Bit Mapping 20 bit) sounds incredible. I can't wait to try other titles in this format.
