please clarify why it is you expect to feel like money is wasted?
So far I can tell you that the DR values for each track are exactly the same between my 16 bit RBCD's and the 24 bit digital download.
I will report back after a listen.

I continue to get the Metallica HIRES releases from HDTracks. Today I purchased Death Magnetic 24/96 and Ride The Lightning 24/96, both where $17.98 without discount code.
Death Magnetic at least at the time of release is/was the most compressed music ever, no room at all to breath. I am actually surprised there is a 24/96 available.
But look at this astonishing difference between the original CD and this new version, DR Loudness Death Magnetic..
I hope it actually sounds better?

Got both of these at 24/192 using the discount code for around $20 U.S. each.
Only had one listen so far but very impressed with how they've been 'beefed up', I know there's varying reviews of these remasters out there but I like it especially for 'IV'. The ending for 'Angela' surprised me I must say! I'll get some more of these, probably 'The Seventh One' next.
