      MQA nails it again 5

      Once again this is the benchmark version hands down!! I have the Japanese SACD and the HD Tracks 192k/24b 45th Anv versions and both are very good however they cannot compete with the 'open natural' sound of the MQA disc,it really feels like your in the studio listening to the playback sessions...remember though this is an album full of distortions and audio glitches,as it was recorded on a budget over a small number of days...not at all'hifi'.Some how MQA still manages to extract the 'magic' from the original master tape!! From my observations so far the MQA discs that feature 352k sample rates appear to be up to date transfers/mastering (2018) Im guessin' specifically done for these MQA reissues and are the best youre going to get period!! Other titles (eg. Deep Purple 2000 master,Queen 2011 masters) are transferred from existing dsd files featuring lower sample rates and older mastering although in the case of the Queen albums not an issue as the 2011 mastering is current enough and the MQA 88k/24b versions outshine their SACD equivalents.
