Can anyone share details of the new lot of Crown Records' SACDs?

I've the Roman, Lisa and Adam set. Music quality is great for those who followed their parents and are familiar with the songs by chasing the HK TV dramas back in the 70's and 80's. The 3 artists have great voice and range.
SACD layer sounds amazing, quiet, clean and great separation clarity and dynamics.
Do note that I have nothing to compare against (CD or vinyl) in terms of SQ and I miss a great part of HK TV drama for being out of Asia during those years.
Hope this helps.

First of all, the original owner of Crown Records was known to make excellent quality recordings.  The new reissues (whether on CD, Vinyl, or SACD) were sourced from the original master tapes.  All of the reissue CDs/SACDs were remastered by "Ball Au", who if I remember correctly, can be traced back to the HK PolyGram years.



My guess is that Crown will not be releasing any new SACD titles without first releasing them on CD first.  I am looking forward to "書劍恩仇錄" and Kitman's catalog on SACD.

I have heard on a number of occasions in the HK Audio show, in one of the hi-end sound room, they play the Crown Vinyl version of Adam Cheng singing "決戰前夕" (Track 2)..One of the songs in the "Lok Siew Fong" Series....this is the best presentation of this song I have ever heard.   The CD version is strained and distorted....cannot match the clarity and the dynamic of the song.   SACD version fares better ....I think this is the best Adam Cheng "Hero Song".

There are many such instances over the decades in Cantonese pop music.  Sigh.

By the way, with May already approaching, the releases of SACDs in Hong Kong will likely be ramped up in anticipation of the annual Hong Kong Audio Visual Show.  What would you like to see get released?
