According to Discogs they have the same mastering:
UIGY-9613
2010 DSD Mastering
Single Layer SHM SACD
2014 Reissue
UIGY-9052
2010 DSD Mastering
Single Layer SHM SACD
UIGY-9613 dropped to $38.83CDN on Amazon Canada so I grabbed it.
This will be my 7th copy of this album, am I crazy or what? Lol

Are the Yes SACDs demonstrably better than the remastered CDs? I have been thinking about getting the Yes SACD box. Thanks.
No the YES SACD Box set is Shrill....AVOID at all costs....but the YESSONGS version that I have posted from 2017 is the best sounding version I've ever heard....ask around....you'll get the same answer....hope this helps

Completely agree. YESSONGS was very poorly recorded to start with, but that SACD version is the best I've heard. I don't mind the low DR on it as it's a live concert, is less muddy than other versions, and I always play it very loud (where the power of the band outshines other considerations). But the low DR values for the "High Vibration" set are unforgivable, given 13 of the discs are studio albums. Just look at the DR database values:
Album list - Dynamic Range Database

Wilson's remixes of five of their albums on Blu-ray are my "go to" versions, as well as the AF SACD of "Going For The One".

GREAT album, Clem and another CTI Treasure which has NEVER had a hi res physical disc release but JUSTLY deserves it is THIS Gem:

NEVER remixed into surround but would make a 'noble' Dutton Vocalion STEREO SACD!
