This direct analog>DSD transfer is nothing short of stunning,
This review is from: Dire Straits (Audio CD)
I only have two complaints about this release.
1) The price
2) No multi-channel mix
That's it. What else could you complain about? I have never heard S/T sound so good, from the opening track right through, this SHM-SACD delivers. Brilliantly open and natural highs particularly in the cymbals and hi-hat, defined and precise lows, Mark's guitar sounds simply incredible and the vocals are more cohesive than the SACD of Brothers In Arms, perhaps because the source material is on a better medium?
I wish North America had these releases domestically, because everyone deserves the chance to hear how good this SACD is but at $55+ it will not help high resolution adoption at all.
If you are on the fence about the SHM-SACD's because you're not sure about the cost and the fidelity, this isn't a bad option to take a chance on. These aren't priced in a range where I could order a few a month, but I definitely don't regret having this one in my collection.

It's good to see others can detect digital enhancing, but not remixed, for true remastering!
