      Best CD-Version for Audiophile (only)! 5

      I bought this Platinum-SHM-CD (UICY-4008) and SHM-CD (UICY-25010) to compare: Platinum-SHM-CD has more air between instruments, more natural heights (no Super Bit Mapping), but overall on same tonal level: Not warmer, not brighter or analytic, just more substance and most important: It's less compressed. SHM-CD is about 6 dB louder! If you have an underpowerd speaker-amp relation, you can't just make up the difference by turning the volume-knob of you amp more up. You might then prefer the normal SHM-Version, which is still very good, even better if your system is underpowered, but simply not the best! Platinum-SHM-CD rules for Audiophile (only)!--- Minimum 5 Stars

      AWESOME !!! 5

      I have all vinyl discography of Dire Straits band and vinyl quality sound is very excellent but these Platinum shm cds exceed any expectation. Amazing sound quality in the mid-high frequencies and perfect balancing of the stero effect with final sound result simply fabulous.

      DIRE ! 3

      Compared to standard German pressing available in UK,this sounds like Mp3!The Red-Book cd sounds rich and clean,the shm sounds better,the Platinum worse!It has to be the flat transfer and I suspect DSD mastering,which would suit SACD better,KRELL and Martin Logan gear was used for tests,but its the same with my Pioneer SACD and Naim setup,it says AUDIOPHILE cd on box it aint!

      Master tape and nothing more 5

      Platinum SHM-CD is the most incredible CD "format", but you need to have a top-high-end (read:very expensive) audio setup to enjoy it. On average system, you may think normal SHM, or even SBM issue, are superior. Platinum SHM-CD sounds exactly like master-tape. "Dire Straits" sounds far better than "Love Over Gold" probably because the second was recorded DDD. Highly recommended!

      Good but not extra 3

      I have 3 differents pressing LP and 3 differents CD of this album. The best is the classic SHM-CD. This Platinum is clearly and immediately under the SHM-CD which is more dynamic and rich. I am disapointed with this new format
