One of the best SACD that I have Recomended.................

Isn't this from the 24/48 transfer that's been previously available on blu-ray?

Not the same old-same old.
This is a true hi-res transfer from backup tapes discovered recently in Japan.
On the plus side is the hi-res transfer — but the lower-res mix was made by a very competent authority.
On the minus side the tapes are second-generation — but copied fifty years ago, when the originals were still in good condition.
The results sound different, but all of them sound good.
I would rate them in this order
#1 — Stereo Sound SACDs
#2 — Blu-Ray Audio
#3 — Esoteric SACDs

Totally agree, I compared this with Esoteric (don't have the bluray version) and this is much more analogue like.

Now, when Stereo Sound are done selling these individual deluxe editions, it would be great if they could release a single box-set of the complete Ring using these remasterings. I hope someone from Stereo Sound will read this comment and think "What a good idea!"...
