    Re: First Impression Music...They sounds so GOOD~!

    Purchased these discs during the Labor Day sale:

    Surfacing and HFO uses FIM's K2HD technology, while The River of Sorrow uses their latest Ultra HD 32bit technology. While Sarah McLachlan is very good, the Eagles' HFO is great, the River of Sorrow disc is outstanding! I love the music on this disc, and to my ears a huge step up from FIM's previously released SACD/CD version (comparing RB to RB). And that was a good sounding disc to start with as well! Highly recommend any of these discs, but especially The River of Sorrow. The music may not be everyone's cuppa, but the sonics are TDF...

    Re: First Impression Music...They sounds so GOOD~!

    Thanks for the positive comments on the albums. I will forward them to Winston Ma. I talked to him yesterday and he told me that the first printing (over 1100 copies) of the latest FIM release, Decca Supreme Stereophonic Legacy which includes my book and liner notes and 4 CD's done with the Ultra HD 32 bit technology was completely sold out to customers and dealers only two weeks after being released on August 8th in Hong Kong. Winston ordered another printing of the book which should be complete by mid October, by the time the books arrive back in Seattle and are combined together with the CD's. I finally got one copy two weeks ago and several members of the team haven't even gotten a copy yet. We have had some nice comments about both the book and the sound quality of the CD's.

    By luck, I got a copy of the book+CDs at the San Francisco show a couple of weeks ago!

    Congratulations, it's very beautiful package!

    Hi,

    Is the music on these cd's both the same but one set has the book and the other does not?

When we did the book and the two versions, I wrote a much shorter version of the liner notes for the second version, since the Liner Notes of the complete release have many references back to the main book. Winston also wanted a shorter version for people who don't read English. However, I don't have a copy of the other release, so I am not absolutely sure what it contains. In any case, both versions have exactly the same CD's.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    +1. The packaging is elegant and classy. Haven't had time to dig into the contents just yet (book or music) but will soon enough. Kudos to you and Winston, Larry!

    Re: First Impression Music...They sounds so GOOD~!

    Based on my excellent experience with FIM re-issues of the TBM titles, I bought a couple of their Telarc ones. I am not sure it was what I expected. They sound fuller and denser, but I thought overly warm and syrupy. Some loss of details as well. Would be keen to hear about anyone's experience with FIM's remastering of Telarc titles.
