      Poor low end and continuity issues 2

      There's very little low end on this CD. Too much treble. Unlike the original "Close To The Edge" album, there's some added stuff dumped in the middle (between side 1 and side 2), which breaks up the continuity of the album. Wouldn't buy it again. I'd rather wait, and hope someone releases a properly balanced version on an SACD of the original recording (without the extras). It may sound fine on regular box speakers, but I have good electrostatic speakers, which unfortunately detail every imperfection in recordings.

      really great 5

      I listened to this edition many times. The decoder in my OPPO UDP 205 shows sigificant improvements MQA is capable of.You hear details you never heared before, but it's not hard sounding, the background is really black, single instruments are clear without hiss. This edition creates the hope for more YES-gems in this quality: the combination of MQA-CD and UHQCD. I dream of Tales from Topographic Oceans, Relayer, Going for The One....
