    Default Paul McCartney - McCartney Deluxe Edition CD/DVD boxed set

    I got this set about a month ago and have listened to it a few times. I still have yet to watch the DVD though. This CD is remastered by the same people that did The Beatles CD's at Abbey Road. This CD remasering is extremely nice. I own the original CD, the remastered england import and the Japanese "mini LP" CD. This one blows them all away. It is clear, the tones are nice, and the stereo separation is better than all other CD versions. Also, the Deluxe edition includes a download of the CD and bonus tracks CD in 24/96. I have yet to do it so I will not give my impressions as I have none yet.

    If you enjoy this CD, get it (there is the standard single disc, and a 2 disc version as well). This CD sounds phenominal compared to any other version. I will update this when I watch the DVD and let you know if it's worth buying it for that . Also, when I get the USB board from twisted pear and download and listen to the 24/94 I will also update for that. Some pictures are below.

    I was thinking of getting this myself. Nice to hear it was well done. Not to de-rail the thread, but do you also have the twisted pear DAC ?

    I do. I built a DAC using the Buffalo II DAC. You can find out about it here: http://www.polkaudio.com/forums/showthread.php?t=119264

    Very nice sounding DAC with the Tube-I-Zator tube output stage.

    You should get the CD(s), you won't be disappointed.

    Ahhh, right I forgot about that thread. Very nice job. I'll probably get the cd's. I'll wait and pick them up used. Cheers.
