However, I find redbook CDs on my Bryston SP3 sounds much better using Dolby Pro Logic Iix music or Bryston's proprietary surround mode Stereo7 7.1. Hi res is simply overrated in my humble opinion. And no more hi res for me.
Thriller was recorded on ANALOG TAPE and is not Hi Res. It was then lossy digitized to PCM. Then it was lossy converted to DSD.
