Way more to do with the mastering than the format.
In my experience, AP Stereo SACD remasters of all DDD 44.1/16 recordings which sounded superb as RBCDs were sonically superior in the higher res format.

Two Examples: Cowboy Junkies The Trinity Sessions. The original RCA RBCD sounded superb but the AP Stereo Remaster brings it to a different level as does Rob Wasserman's DUETS, both of which were original DDD 44.1/16 bit PCM recordings.

Wonderful transfer this is the bomb cannot wait for Desperado :SB :QQlove :dance :rocks
I really want to get this (and the others) but the cheapest I've seen so far in the UK is at £45 :(

If I import I'll pay, currency conversion charges, 20% tax + £12 tax gathering fee! If amazon.com stock them I won't pay the tax gathering fee as tax is automatically added for UK shipments. I'll just have to be patient!
