Description in Japanese

彩 (エイジャ) [SHM-SACD] [初回限定生産] / スティーリー・ダン

[SA-CD~SHM仕様~ 第1回 名盤全20タイトル] 透明性/流動性に優れるSHM素材をボディに使用、DSD本来の特性が生きるシングルレイヤー(2ch)方式を採り入れた、究極のSuper Audio CDシリーズ。SA-CD層のみを有するシングルレイヤー型とすることで透過性を排除、音楽情報を余すところなく読み取るに十分な反射率を確保。非圧縮データの収録を可能にするため、SA-CD層は2chのみに特化している。レーザーが反射膜までの距離をより正確に往復できるよう、ボディにはクリアな液晶パネル用ポリカーボネート素材を採用。これはSHM-CDと同じ素材で、通常のSA-CDと比べ透明性は勿論、より正確なビットを形成するために必要な流動性にも優れている。 ■ドナルド・フェイゲンとウォルター・ベッカー2人のユニットとなった彼らが発表した第6作。彼らのアルバム中で最高の売り上げを記録した。全米3位、全英5位。グラミー賞の最優秀録音賞を獲得。ジャケットを山口小夜子が飾ったことも話題になった。1977年発表。 初SA-CD化。国内オリジナル・アナログ・テープを基にした2010年最新DSDマスター。

      Very good! 5

      This is better than the remaster cd. The 5 stars is for the SHM bettering the cd version and for the music. Aja has always sounded a bit withdrawn and a little flat, and does not sound anywhere near as good as Gautcho(ditto for the music). But this delivers what I bought it for-it betters the cd version, and is the best didgital Aja on the marked.

      An expensive luxury but worth it 5

      I really was in two minds about this release. Some reviews were sceptical and the price was almost prohibitive for me. However, I'm glad I took the plunge. This really does sound great, particularly compared to the 1999 remastered version. OK, so it is a little bright and a little loud, but the dynamics and 'air' around the instruments make this a very rewarding listen. Also Fagen's voice, which is pretty nasel at the best of times,sounds great! Definitely recommend this release if you can stomach the cost. Oh, and the packaging, in true Japanese style, is absolutely gorgeous.

      Just breathtaking 5

      Steely Dan's 'Aja' in itself is already a masterpiece of musical refinement. The jazzy touches, subtleties and overall well thought out compositions make for a fulfilling listening experience, whether it's on vinyl or cd. This new SHM-SACD release however takes the game to a whole new level. The audio is simply stunning and blows you away with its clarity, depth and fantastic dynamics. This simply is a must have!
