New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.


If on the other hand I only choose to connect to the two front channels only and still play the MCH layer of the disc,will I hear only what the basic stero pair picked up as opposed to playing the multimiked dedicated stereomix???
When playing for example the excellent Mahler 5th on Pentatone or Mahler's sixth on Telarc for that matter, that way I hear a leaner, cleaner, less obviously multimiked soundpicture than via the dedicated stereomix!?A sound closer to the old purist examples of early Telarcs Mercuries and Living Stereos.
I don't deny that MCH can be better than plain stereo.But plain stereo with fewer mikes sounds more natural and more realistic than multimiked stereo to me.Why did Telarc abandon their purist approach and begin using multimiking? even in stereo?
I'm putting this question to both Bishop and Erdo!
