Dark Side of the Moon's best is the 5.1 SACD.
Still very good and close behind, is the original Quadraphonic version.
playing these, you'll easily hear all kinds of things
you could not hear before on the Cd's.
the original Cd's in stereo lack a lot of resolution
compared to the 2 above; dynamic range seems more restricted
and so many different instruments all jammed up in the front
stage makes for fuzziness in the reproduction.
compared to the CD's, the surround versions seem to have a much better sound stage and acoustic ambiance.
i love the SACD, and for those who can't play them,
the disc's stereo version (hybrid disc) is also supposed to have been remastered from the original half inch tapes and one benefit is that the details and resolution are better than on former cd releases.
