Review by AmirKessner May 14, 2007 (8 of 9 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:
I bought this SACD in eBay, and, luckily enough, the seller has been willing to accept it back with full refund.

On a reasonably good system (see /showuser/1998), it simply sounds IDENTICAL to the MID-priced RCA's High Performance CD (09025-63308-2, 24/96 remastering). It's quite possible that the Hong Kong guys simply took the RBCD and converted it to SACD format, with no audible gain in sound quality, while the price difference is HUGE.

I'd recommend buying the CD :-)
