Robert Cray - Strong Persuader in High Res 24/96 and 24/192


Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

 

Has anyone purchased this album at either sample rate and, if so, what are your thoughts on the sound quality?

 

If anyone has any DR numbers or spectograms I would be most grateful (although do not want to be too greedy!).

 

With many thanks.

 

Happy listening!

Here are the DR scores from the original CD, Mercury 830 568-2. I, too, would be interested in seeing if the hi-res remaster betters these numbers, or if it turns out to be another compressed, volume-boosted disappointment.

I don't have anything to compare it to but I bought the 24/96 version. After 1 listen I thought it sounded very clear. Roberts guitar and the drums sounded very clean and crisp. I thought the bass lacked just a tad.

I totally agree with al210 after having purchased the Qobuz 24/192 version. It seems like an almost flat transfer that is thankfully free of any modern day mastering nasties IMHO. The DR numbers and graphs of track 1 are attached.

 

If you are a fan, this is a worthwhile purchase but it is debatable if 24/192 is necessary (note the 54kHz tone of some sort though?).

 

Happy listening!
