You don't need a "golden ear" to hear the improvement
in an xrcd. The improvement in sound quality of xrcd over a conventional
CD is not subtle. Obvious gains in clarity, transparency, dynamics
and warmth of xrcd can be heard by all. xrcd allows the listener
to hear what the producer and artist intended to hear the sound
of the original master tape. And, unlike some other recent attempts
to improve CD sound quality, no additional equipment or add on converter
is necessary to fully realize the sonic benefits of the xrcd process.
