I haven't yet listened to Abbey Road. Looks like it may be sketchy. Been waiting on Pepper's for a loooooooooong time, now, but it should be in pretty soon. I will holler with my thoughts, I guess. Like I said, though, Revolver in stereo is not (to my brutalized ears) an earth-shattering improvement. It just sounds a bit more crisp and dimensional.

Also, lots of sub-320s floating around, minus Revolver. Not sure how much stock I should put in my own opinions...

Hmm, well, this will be interesting then.

Out of curiosity, where are you grabbing copies from?

I really don't think Abbey Road is V0 at all, the bitrates look way too low

Making opinions on the quality of a remastered classic album based on a digital file rip seems incredibly backward to me.

Seeing as the FLAC is out there, there's no reason people couldn't. it's on the next in CD quality




I think Abbey Road is a transcode for people on what, the bit rates are at most low 200s, seems odd for a V0

I was going to say the same thing, especially as part of the experience will be cracking open that new packaging.

I will agree with this, even though I think it was mistakenly directed at me. I agree, and that's why I'm making note of the "quality" of the files.

It might be between a V2 and V0. Low 200s isn't all that bad of a rip, as long as it isn't a transcode.

Perusing through the comments, it looks like the uploader has the discs in front of him and is working on getting a FLAC of each up, so I don't think Abbey Road's a transcode, just a lower V0 probably.

Whatever it is, this one already sounds like a pretty spectacular improvement. Very noticeable, even at doo-doo quality.

I just think all lower 200s on a V0 seems really low, especially since the songs also cut off at a frequency of 16k a lot of the time. Which shouldn't be happening on a V0 unless the CDs are like that

They definitely sound remastered, just not V0 quality in my opinion

Hmm, who knows. I'll still listen to them until I get my own copy and can rip 'em myself.

I think I'm going to put Sgt. Pepper's on first.
