Got Dire Straights. It is (like so many other XRCD releases) reference quality. Incredibly low noise floor, with tight, well defined bass. Recommended highly.

I have both of the disks. I had a friend over who has the DTS Hell Freezes Over and he said that it sounded just as good or better. There is no comparing it to the regular CD. The Brothers In Arms is fantastic. I compared some of the tracks that are on the HDCD "The Very Best of Dire Straits" with the XRCD. The XRCD blows the HDCD away. You won't be sorry if you buy them. So long as your set up can deliver what they have to offer.
