Hyper-compressed Loudness Wars release

1 Stars
Posted Tuesday, November 29, 2016 by dobyblue Unfortunately with Sony chances are remastering details are going to be hard to find when they reissue high resolution versions of catalogue titles and this one is no exception, in fact I don't even think it mentioned that it's been remastered but it clearly has...the dynamics have been stripped from this release and it has been heavily compressed in the mastering stage. There are no credits here, so I have no idea who is responsible for it, but sadly this "High Resolution" release is beaten in every regard by the initial CD release.

There is no sonic information above 48kHz here so if you do love the sound of dynamically challenged recordings then pick up the 24/96 version.

The tracks most affected are the Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Mother Love Bone and Pearl Jam tracks. The Chloe Dancer track is even more compressed than the new Mother Love Bone 24/96 collection and that was already "over-loudnessed". Hendrix and Cornell tracks not as bad.

Bad Sony, bad, bad bad. One star.

Conan the Barbarian 96K version

2 Stars
Posted Monday, March 21, 2016 by James Burt A very disappointing release. I'm beginning to think many of the older titles are not worth the expense for high res transfers. This release sounds very dull and muffled, like a third generation tape transfer. Not the fault of Acoustic Sounds but the source they are given. The recent Intrada 2 CD release at 44.1 sounds 3x better than the quality of this transfer at 96k. Recommended only for the music, not for this transfer.

Overly cleaned-up tape transfer

2 Stars
Posted Saturday, July 18, 2015 by James Burt Not a terrible score but not in the same league as John Williams. Unfortunately someone has decided this apparent tape source needed a cleanup, probably to remove tape hiss and give it a more pristine appearance for its 96K transfer. Bad decision in my opinion. The artifacts caused by this choice has completely changed the character of the orchestra, especially in the high strings and woodwinds and made it, for me, difficult to listen to. Hopefully this is not going to be a trend in transfers for older analog titles to hi-def sound because I would much rather listen to a CD (or cassette tape) than a 96K version that sounds like this one does.

Wow

5 Stars
Posted Saturday, April 26, 2014 by Chris I own the original Redbook version of this album and was always impressed with its mix of great songs and impressive SQ.

Comparing the SQ between this DSD download and the original was ear opening to say the least thru my Meitner MA-1 DAC. The soundstage of the DSD version is much wider and information packed. Dynamic range seems through the roof too but unfortunately I have no way of confirming this for DSD files. For what its worth the measured DR of the Redbook version was a 10. Subjectively this one sounds far punchier in all the right places.

Highly Recommended

Thin and harsh.

1 Stars
Posted Wednesday, April 9, 2014 by Aaron The soundstage is collapsed and the sound is thin. I regret spending $25 on this title. I have a large number of high res PCM, and a couple of other DSD files. This is among the couple that I regret.
