Fake 96 Khz

4 Stars
Posted Wednesday, April 25, 2018 by Anonymous Look at the spectrogramme and we can see lost frequency after 48 khz. So it is a True 48 khz - 24 bits version with a HiRes quality.

It's from Remastered edition with a Dynamic Range of 8 db.

Enjoyable but underwhelming

4 Stars
Posted Friday, October 27, 2017 by Frank This album does not impress me compared to other high res albums. There isn’t great seperatation, the vocals frequently sound quite muffled. The sound quality is also least impressive in the first couple of tracks, so the album really is kind of a let down on your first listen. (Others might argue this is all a function of the source material)

That said, the fidelity is there and the details open up at higher volume levels. The bass is very nice. Things pop out that remind me that i’m listening to a high res track.

If you are a fan of the artist or the genre, it’s worth a download. However, it won’t go on the playlist you use to impress your friends.

Better than Bruce

5 Stars
Posted Wednesday, September 6, 2017 by Peter Hyatt This is one of the most under-rated albums of rock history. Edgy, gorgeous horns and vocals and the hi res plays beautifully. I'm using Chord Hugo 2 DAC with Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd gen) headphones. The horns are crystal clear and John Lyon's vocals are rich and deep. You get Stevie Van Zandt writing and Jersey soul sound from a singer who could have made it in opera. Great blend.

Soulful Fun

5 Stars
Posted Wednesday, September 6, 2017 by Peter Hyatt One of my favorite all time bands, this intro album is terrific. It has soul, rock, blues and fun all by a terrific singer, tight band and fabulous horns. The hi res recording is nice. Great detail, especially of percussion and horns. I've had it since the 70's but jumped at the chance to get it in high resolution.

Great music, and the mix is as it always was.

Posted Friday, January 27, 2017 by Anonymous I have heard gripes about the sound quality on this edition. After listening to it, I can only say: this is the master as it was back in the '70s... if you liked it then and don't now, it's probably because you now have a higher-end system. Suffice to remember that 8 out of 9 tracks on this album were actually recorded in Tom Scholz' basement, and were being transferred from 1/4-inch reel to 1/2-inch reel while the rest of the band was in the studio with producer John Boylan, recording "Let Me Take You Home Tonight" (and the sonics on that track are obviously different... hear for yourself). This is the album as I remember it, and I have a Sony Mastersound CD and LP, a Columbia House LP issue, and a couple of 8-tracks. I cannot claim to have heard the original US first press LP (the famed one), but as far as I'm concerned, this DSD maintains the same mix and sound while benefitting from the increased fidelity offered by DSD, which even 24/192 WAV can't match. Enjoy. I will.

Great music, but stick with the CD

4 Stars
Posted Thursday, November 19, 2015 by Phil Cohen I obtained this download, but not at this website. Yes, there is no doubt that this album was the peak of ELO's career. The mastering of this 192Khz download is loud, especially on the opening track "Turn to Stone" which is rendered boomy with a loss of clarity. I would advise you to stick with the CD edition, and the CD edition gives you 3 bonus tracks, which, not surprisingly are omitted here. Actually, the place where this album sounded best was on original 1977 "Jet Records" vinyl, specifically pressings made before Jet's manufacturing & distribution changed from United Artists to CBS.

She's a Brick...Wall!

Posted Friday, November 13, 2015 by Jim B. What a damned shame. It's like listening to the Nirvana remaster. All of the ELO releases are brickwalled to death. So, so disappointing.
