Yesterday I discovered a 5.1 download of Mahlers 10th in the Cooke edition.
It's a recording from the Seattle Symphony Orchestra conducted by Thomas Dausgaard. It was ...
Great, glad it worked. When I listen to MDG SACDs, I sometimes leave my RCA connectors in 5.0 configuration instead of 2+2+2 and discover my oversight quickly because the ...
As I listen to more and more versions of Mahler 4, I realize that I am more interested in the subtle and rich versions available. I started with Gergiev/LSO and initially was ...
It has been a year of transition at the LSO as SSR settled into his new role and bade his fond farewells to 'his' Berliners whilst VG was hustled out the back door. One or two ...
The mixed response to the Brogli Sacher disc may be a matter of expectations about how the piece ought to sound. The Lubeck band is only about 65 strong, and in my view does ...

Thank you Stephen. I've finally had a opportunity to try your tip, and you're quite right, disconnecting the center channel brings the whole presentation into better focus.

Rarely do I not recommend a disc but this new hybrid SACD disc is no better than the RBCD of the same. I listened and thought this stereo only disc really doesn't have any depth or impacting sound stage, then I looked up on the DR list and my thoughts where confirmed, you can see for yourself.

Help could be at hand Mark. It Looks like the Japanese are releasing this in SACD come the 19th of April. See below for some blurb on the subject.
This is the ultimate. One of the rock masterpieces from Santana, "Lotus" becomes a Japan exclusive SACD hybrid multi-ch edition (4ch mix). It uses two-layered SACD with DSD 11.2MHz mastering made in 2017.
This is the complete. Seven unreleased tracks, which had been sealed for 44 years long, are included in this set, and finally listed on the original order. These seven are: "Japan," "Bamble," "Ummu Uum," "Sacred Light," "The Creator Has A Master," "SAVER," and "Conga Solo" (about 35 minutes total).
Legendary engineer Tomoo Suzuki, who was responsible for recording & mixing of the original work, is responsible for mixing these seven tracks, using the original master tapes stored in Japan.
7-inch size mini LP (22 panel) faithfully replicates its original LP designed by Tadanori Yokoo, including original color photo(s), liner notes, and the original obi. Also includes reproductions of a Japan tour pamphlet and an Osaka concert ticket. Japanese original release.
