    Note that there is another SHM out there (2013); the OBI shows the "Back to Rock Years..." emblem. It is NOT the same and sonically nowhere near the 2008 with the SHM-CD logo gold sticker.

    Found one of the SHM discs on ebay … Looking forward to comparing that to the SACD version. This is one of my favorite Dire Straits albums for sure! I also have on R2R which is amazing from Sonorus using their SHI mastering process.

    Re: Dire Straits - On Every Street version shootout

    On every street was already the best recorded Dire Straits album imo, the latest Mofi SACD release sounds more refined, musical and has better low frequency extension.

    Got my SHM CD today and all I can say is WOW! I like it substantially better than any digital version I’ve ever heard of this album including the new Mofi SACD which I also own. Thanks for the tip!

    Re: Dire Straits - On Every Street version shootout

    I had the 1991 and received the MoFi yesterday.

    A bit clearer with bit more space around instruments. Vocal slightly larger. The guitar rifts were to further the left of the sound stage.

    I would say, for me 5-8% change/better based on playing them one ofter the other.

    The end result is I'm glad I purchased the MoFi.

    I will probably look for the SHM. I have a couple of other SHM, and they are very good. If you asked me which ones right now I would need to go look through the shelves to see. Old and fading memory.

    Re: Dire Straits - On Every Street version shootout

    Found a used SHM on Amazon Prime for $20.49. Its returnable so not much to loose.
    I will give my opinion in a slow Prime delivery of 8-10 days.

    Dont take this the wrong way, and I agree its a great record...but what is the wisdom of doing a R2R copy of a digitally recorded album?
