Honestly wasn't expecting much even though Jeff Beck is my favorite guitarist. This is fabulous. Buying the CD but wonder if HDT will have this in better res?

Thanks for posting on Loud Hailer. The Pono website only has one song at 44.1/16. If they get the whole album up I will buy it there. In the event that they only have it in red book quality I would be in line for a future free hi res upgrade.

Yeah, I like it too. Hopefully it won't be too heavily volume compressed and there will be a hi-res download.

Main listening (small home office):

Main setup: Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>QuietPC Low Noise Server>Roon (Audiolense DRC)>Stack Audio Link II>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.

Secondary Listening: Server with Audiolense RC>RPi4 or analog>Matrix Element i Streamer/DAC (XLR)+Schiit Freya>Kii Three .

Bedroom: SBTouch to Cambridge Soundworks Desktop Setup.
Living Room/Kitchen: RPi 3B+ running RoPieee to a pair of Morel Hogtalare.

I bought the CD and am glad I didn't spend double on the download. Horrible doesn't even name it right. The stream on NPR wasn't so bad but I was listening off the computer. The CD is unlistenable (I hate that descriptive) from and audio standpoint. So ridiculously compressed so you get bass'd to death. A real disappointment since the musicianship is great and I do like the compostion. Only can wonder "what if" and this thing was given air to breath.

available on Tidal. It's now at from between $16-$20 at the hi-res sites, for 24/44.1. if the hi-res has that kind of DR, I'm glad I didn't buy it.
