Well I bought Goodbye Yellow Brick Road BRA from Jb and will report back after comparing it to my SACD of the same.

What I also bought was this:

And the BD Audio disk is EXCELLENT ... Withought a doubt I have never heard these tracks sound better... They could have been recorded yesterday.

There is not a lot of data on these BR pure audio discs. Typically it takes about 90 minutes to import a BR and 30 minutes to import a DVD in Kaleidescape. The BR pure audio discs only take about 10 minutes.

.


I've just finished back to back 5.1 track comparisons of the SACD 30th Anniversary Disc and the New BD Audio version.

Gear: Oppo 105, Integra 8.3 and Elektra HD

SACD outputting DSD to the Integra
BRA outputting DTSHDMA as that is the only multichannel track on this disc.

Long story short the BRA is the superior version.

The SACD has a much warmer sound with noticeably more bass.

The BRA has much better Mid and Hi end ... Far more detailed and transparent in the clarity of the sound.

Effectively I think the SACD is more "basey" because it is missing much the hi and mid detail due to the lower amount if data.

If you have the SACD it still sounds great, but the BRA is the audio equivalent of the difference between DVD and BD in Picture Quality.

Neither disc is hard to listen to after hearing the other ... Some would probably say they prefer the basier SACD.

Picked up breakfast in America and exile on main street last Saturday.

 

both included vouchers to access a digital download of the album; currently downloading zip files.

 

Breakfast in America was good, but not noticeable better than original vinyl.  I did a compare of three tracks (obviously not blind).  Of course the main difficulty is that the new BRPA has been remixed, so it sounds different...and maybe I prefer the original mix - who kn ows.

 

Exile I've never owned before.  Good album but the audio did not leap out at me as something special.

Here's a new 5.1 album (not 30 years old) on HFPA Blu-ray Audio especially mixed in '3D' surround:

Mando Diao: Aileta

This video talks about the surround mix and the band in general. Not sure if this is being sold in AU, I ordered mine from Amazon UK

This Mando Diao single from their Aelita Pure Audio album sounds just like INXS:
