Newly Available Mo-Fi Dire Straits SACD's

Just saw this from a note in my e-mail today from Elusive Disc. Usually, Mo-Fi is an indicator of quality recordings.

Just wondering if anyone has jumped on this yet, and what you thought of the sound quality.

I would personally rather use the word 'sometimes'.

They are all good. The first album is excellent

 

In particular in comparison to 2010-2012 Japanese SACDs. I have MoFi 'Brothers in Arms' only, but have no possibility of comparing its sound with any other release. BTW I never liked the sound of this album (dry and thin, an early digital recording AFAI remember),


The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night, and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Mark the music.

The only one of the MoFi SACDs that I have listened to repeatedly is the first album. I think it may well be the best I have heard with the exception of my UK first pressing vinyl. I prefer the sound of the MoFi SACDs to the earlier SACD releases

There are quite a number of versions of Brothers In Arms, and they vary. We should eventually be fortunate enough to see a new article about this in the absolutely outstanding "Best Version Of" series by by JoshM. When I recommended that he do just that, he replied 

"That's absolutely on my list. The varying track lengths are a big question mark with it, too." 

 

Can't wait!

Meaning also the Japanese remasters I mentioned?

specifics on "better"?

Just more coherent I guess. On the first album, the instrument separation is very good. and the bass guitar is more detailed and melodic
