Just like I said, MLP did not remaster the CD layer like Living Stereo did.
The CD rips from the CD layer of MLP SACDs can be matched with the old issues back in early 90s.
Therefore the difference between the SACD layer and CD layer is more prominent due to the more different remasters.
Janis' Pictures in Exhibition does not have out of range problem in SACD layer.
There are only about 20? MLP reissues in SACD, yet the MLP box contains 50CDs.
Living Stereo 60CD box can be perfectly matched with the CD layer of the SACD issues but not with only CD issues in early 90s.
All but one CD in that box (1st CD, the sampler) have their exact copy in the CD layer of SACD issues.
