This Single-Layer SHM-SACD can only be played on a Super Audio CD Player!
SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high resolution format such as SACD.
Reissue from Dire Straits featuring the high-fidelity SHM-SACD format. Part of a four-album Dire Straits SHM-SACD reissue series featuring albums Communique, Making Movies, Brothers In Arms, and Alchemy: Dire Straits Live.
The 1984 release Alchemy was the first live album by Dire Straits and features Sultans of Swing and Private Investigations.
