Wondering if this sounds better than an early CD release?Jimi Hendrix ARE YOU EXPERIENCED [SONY LEGACY/AP Stereo/Mono SACD] Thought I'd dig this disc out of the pile and give it a spin after waiting gawd knows how long for Analogue Productions to FINALLY release it. Played Loudly it sounds GREAT! Hendrix producer Eddie Kramer promised us more Hendrix in Surround. IMO, this would be a GREAT candidate!
I believe this album was recorded 4 track but I could be mistaken! Has a rawness that I like .... not meant to be 'audiophile!' Wonder what original recording engineer Eddie Kramer could accomplish if he attempted a SURROUND REMIX and released it as a 192/24 BD~A??????
I have nothing to compare the SACD to since I’ve never purchase a copy on CD.I believe this album was recorded 4 track but I could be mistaken! Has a rawness that I like .... not meant to be 'audiophile!'
Perp, at over 80 minutes in duration, glad AP gave us both the MONO and Stereo SACD Remasters. I did purchase the recent SONY 2 disc Remix [with DVD] but have yet to do a comparison.
NOT on my system. Am playing it through my tank like Marantz SA11S2 SACD Player DSD balanced out out into my all analogue Parasound P7 pre amp into my B&W 802 Nautilus speakers and at high volume no evidence of compression.Eh... I'm not sure I'd call it "spectacular." It's not bad, but it's pretty dynamically compressed.
