It seems a bit of a bother to have to switch back and forth like that, but it is what it is. And it is a fine disc.
I own the SACDs, but unfortunately I don't have an RBCD for comparison. - I am also quite disappointed with the sound quality of the SACDs. I would have expected more for ...
Fair enough but I am not a fan of Bernstein's Mahler either although he has a lot of fans

This series is direct DSD conversion from the original analog master. It is the world's first. It is a great sound quality. I highly recommend this
I bought this release and compared it with the RBCD version. I was a tad disappointed. There is an improvement but it's minimal. The drums are a bit crisper and that's about it (to my ears at least). So it seems the RBCD version was about as good as it's going to get.
I found two other reviews for this release (including the one above) and they were both very positive. I don't know, however, if they're based on a comparison with the RBCD version. The SACD is indeed excellent but, if it hardly differs from the RBCD, then one wonders whether it was worth releasing this album again on a silver disc, especially at such a high price. Has anybody else had a chance to compare the SACD and RBCD? (I made my comparison through a pair of Beyerdynamic T1 2nd Generation headphones.)
