Again someone felt the need to mess with Elvis' classics. 30 songs messed up on Reborn and turned into fake stereo.

Now available on Spotify. After listening, my verdict - horrible, just horrible.

After an extended listen, streaming Spotify at 320 kbps through a Naim Uniti Nova and B&W 805/3, I endorse my previous thoughts - the DES is horrible, adding nothing but detracting considerably from the mono recordings. Principal concerns: No middle in the stereo soundfield, very limited bass response with what appears heavy artificial treble to somehow add 'clarity' (it fails!); added reverb; compression (perhaps to boost the mids?). The technology may be interesting but the execution and final result certainly isn't.

Listened to both and as PADawgs did, streaming Spotify Premium. I agree with his/her comments to some extent, maybe not quite so harshly and I think the quality of his/her system - and it's very expensive - doesn't help. However, I don't notice any difference with BitTube in terms of sound other than Bittube seems louder. I certainly think the results are very interesting and I'm sure I can hear parts of the backing and nuances in Elvis's voice I couldn't in mono! So bits clearer but it's certainly not a stereo image and there are various processing artifacts as PADawgs mentioned.
