There's been a lot of discussion over at SA-CD Net about SHM-CD's and whether the "clearer plastic" technology they use generates any actual improvement in sound quality. Many people simply don't believe that would be possible. Metallica's new album - Death Magnetic - is going to be released in Japan in SHM-CD format.

I'm not very knowledgeable about this area - does anyone here know more or have opinions about SHM-CD?

Edit: I've read that mastering engineer Ted Jansen is going to working on this album - whether as mastering and recording engineer, I don't know.

I quickly found this rather amusing thread elsewhere.

If it's a CD, then WHATEVER material it's made of, nothing but FUZZ! With EAC you can extract the actual content of a CD. A different plastic, gold layer or anything in that calibre would not change it!

Can't wait for a HD-AAC encoder :P

Not a fuzz, but makes you fuzzy in the head! Just read this:

SHM-CD is pure dope, I think! laugh.gif

EDIT: Ok. Sorry for the rule #8 violation in this post. Of course, I must do some double blind ingestion/smoking tests with these new CDs first, but you must understand that the high expectations make me all jittery, so to speak.
