My top priority now has become to purchase older recorded CD's first in HDCD then if that's not available, digitally remastered to 24 bit. I just today bought Grateful Dead's "Wake of the Flood" to replace my original CD which if any of you know about this album, the sound of both the LP and original CD was so thin and lacked any bass. Horrible!! Now there's some real depth, vastly improved sound stage, bass, and detail. Specific artists such as Joni Mitchell, the Dead, The Beach Boys, etc have made a commitment to have their original music remastered in HDCD. I only wish more and more artists would agree to this. I'm now starting to replace my standard CD's with HDCD's and donate the older ones to our local library. I also just purchased "Miles of Aisles" by Joni Mitchell today in HDCD which will replace my original CD set. That's off to the library tomorrow as well.
