I already wrote a review on this recording which basically says, the MC sound is not good, sounding fake and processed (which it is).
Now I finally decided to give the stereo SACD layer a try. And found, that the channels are reversed! Only on the SACD, not the CD layer! One more reason to place this recording high on the list of the all time worst SACDs.

In fact, the whole first batch of Membran/RPO SACDs has reversed channels on the hi-rez stereo layer.

I just bought four SACDs from Membran/RPO at only 6 $ each at eBay!

Could the reversed channel be the reason why they were so cheap ? :-(

Are your copies suffering from reversed channels?

I don't know. These are budget discs, selling at 5-6 Euro here (like Naxos CDs).

I don't know yet. I have only played them in ordinary mode (in want of a better expression) as I don't have a sacd player yet.

You can see one of them on the link below.
