I have enjoyed this hybrid SACD very much - but I feel it has one slight flaw which prevents it from being top notch.
The stereo SACD layer is as usual a slight improvement over the normal stereo CD layer - but the surround layer really opens out the sound giving much more presence and detail.
But I was always aware of the rear speaker channels, e.g. in Bydlo from the Pictures - whereas in the finest SACDs I have heard, like Uchida's Schubert Sonata D568 and Harnoncourt's Bruckner 9, the rears were brilliantly (but subtlely) used to give a real concert-hall feel - here you feel there are VPO musicians playing behind you a bit, which isn't really realistic in my opinion.
Perhaps it's significant that despite the DSD logo on the cover, this is a PCM 24 bit recording, while the very best SACDs use pure DSD.
But don't let me put you off, this is a very vivid and enjoyable SACD.
