Listened to that this afternoon:

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

 

I was very surprised to enjoy it so much. I like the music for sure but I found that the recording is good enough to be fully enjoyable. It's not the case with my "Nevermind" version.

I like that album too. it was released differently then Nevermind. In my opinion there is more bass, more dynamics and somehow it is more mature. But on the other hand Nevermind has this unforgettable brightness in the sound and amazing sound of Cobain's guitar.

Great deal on the PWD. I would recommend at least getting mk ii upgrade. Should be a bunch of them out there on the cheap because of upgrades to ps audio DS. Or just go to DS as initial word is that it is noticeably better.

Why not, it is.  You are already a believer!  You will definitely hear the difference after your new HP is broken in.  You got some good stuff feeding into the HP.  Enjoy...
