ReviewsThe HDtracks version in 176.4 kHz is killer! Tons of jump, knock-out clarity, bass that hammers your soul, a sense of improved spaciousness, and poundin' rhythm that had me tapping my foot immediately! The enhanced resolution makes the greatness of Jackson at his height of his art inescapable. - David W. Robinson, Positive Feedback
