I listened to my copy extensively. Thanks for helping me deciding to give this series another chance, because this particular remastering is worth every penny.
On the low ...
When I started collecting SACD’s I had little experience with hi-res sound quality. Now I know better. Listening the other day to this recording of Brahms’ second piano ...

Thanks for your answer, I had three points in mind with my question:

Phew! Recorded in 1978, but sounds like yesterday. The Japanese sure know how to look after their master tapes.
The remaster was done by Bob Ludwig at Gateway in the USA. The original master digitized by Mitsuo Koike (AST). When this all happened does not appear to be stated, at least not in the English bits of the booklet. Copyright though is given as 2018.
There has been a bit of compression applied, but with this type of music it is not so much of an issue. For the record you are looking at an average DR of 9.
The fidelity though is remarkable. And in this instance the super clean Japanese audio presentation suits the type of music here down to the ground.
This is trailblazing stuff. People tend to think of them as a Japanese analogue of Kraftwork, but they are not really that. Daft Punk for one probably would not exist without them.
One small interesting thing that confused me initially is the jewel case. It looks for all the world to be a standard one, but feels significantly more substantial when you handle it. Turns out it is ever so slightly thicker. A nice touch.
