HDCD-encoded CDs sound better because it is encoded with 20 bits of real musical information, in stead of the standard 16 bits encoding. HDCD overcomes the limitation of the 16-bit CD format by using a sophisticated system to encode the additional 4 bits onto the CD while remaining completely compatible with the existing CD format. With HDCD, you get the body, depth, and emotion of the original performance not a flat, digital imitation.

To hell with all this new technology. Every day there some new "miracle" to make the same songs sound "better". I'm not investing any more money in new equipment. First, I can't afford it. Second, by the time I can afford the latest "new" thing, It's OLD. I'll stick with my cds. When they quit putting music on cds as we know them I'll stop buying music.

Bugger. There was me all safe in the knowledge that ELV1S 30 NO 1s was "exactly as it sounded in the studio" and then, all of a sudden, some egg head goes and destroys the illusion alltogether. It's like finding out Santa isn't real. Trouble is I'll complain like an old woman and then wet my pants in anticipation of getting it. If current trends continue, every Elvis cd in the world will become a different version of the same album.I can't wait for the VHDCD (Very High Definition Compatible Digital) version.
Ooh, and then there'll be the EFWBAOS (Elvis Fans Will Buy Any Old Shite) version. We never had this kind of trouble with vinyl. Back in my day a record was a record.......etc.

I'm sick to death of bying the same tracks over and over just because they are, once again, in SLIGHTLY better sound quality than last time!! Where's it gonna end?!

Oops, I have to eat my words on this one. Pacific Microsonics have developed a new chip (PMD-200) that is able to achieve 24bit/192KHz sound.

I bought this cd off ebay from Hong Kong along with 3 other Elvis HDCD cd's. All I can say is WOW, the sound is out of this world and Elvis songs never and I mean never, sounded this good, there are instruments that I never knew were used on certain songs, it is so rich that once you put it in your system, especially if you have a surround sound system or listening to them through your cd walkman headphones, that you really hear the quality and great sound of these cd's. If you have a chance to by these cd's, buy them, you will not regret it.

I'd be careful if I were you with these CDs. See the sticker "HDCD - 24bit/96Khz"? Well, HDCD is a 20bit-encoding process developed by Pacific Microsonics (now acquired by Microsoft).
