Kind of Blue is an all time classic album. I am writing about this hybrid version compared to the Sony 24 bit version I have from North America. The NA version had indicated that it was corrected, that prior versions had speed problems. I used an audiophile stereo sound system, Audio Research and Focal equipment. My Ref cd 7 audio research cd player reads DSD, not SACD for the purposes of this review. The Japanese Hybrid DSD provided better definition and seperation than the older cd. The glaring weekspot came in the highs and lows. John Coltrane simply has more beauty and strength in the older less technical version. His highs just got wiped out in the process of getting rid of bothersome noises. In conclusion, you may want both copys :") as the version reviewed offers an enhancement in definition, but the older version, provides certain highs and lows cleaned out in the mastering of this cd. When they amalgamate the best of both cd's, we will have the excellant rating strived for by cd purchasers.
