i just read a rant about norah jones' SACD which tells readers that the SACD version is really just the original 16/44.1 CD data converted to SACD and not a proper high resolution (eg. 24/96) transfer.
if you were thinking of buying the SACD, save your money and buy the identical CD instead.
i don't blame the writer for getting bent out of shape over that. it's bad enough that MP3 is dragging DVD-A and SACD down, but now the formats themselves are commiting suicide?
I have the Norah Jones SACD. It sounds great with the room filling ambience created by the rear speakers. Many SACDs have the bass at -10db. I used my SACDs players bass management to compensate. Perhaps it could have been even better, but I like it better than the 2ch recording.
