Taken from the Tower Records (Japan) machine translated description for this title:
"- Sound Supervisor: Masayoshi Okawa (Music Producer and Recording Engineer) ● Mastering Engineer: Kazushige Yamazaki (Victor Studio FLAIR Engineer) ● New mastering from the label-owned original master for this release
The latest remastering from the original analog master tape. The SACD layer uses sacd master (DSD) faithfully converted from the original analog master.
The CD layer also uses a PCM master that converts digital data converted from the original analog master to the DSD: • Modern remastering using a 96kHz/24bit base master digitized analog cutting master.
There is also a clear specification in the liner, but the fifth song "Great Wall" is an arrangement of cutouts (cut out after 2 minutes, the sixth song begins). Please understand in advance."

Sounds great too. Very clear, clean and well balanced. The cutout issue took me by surprise though - I momentarily wondered if the disk had skipped.

Very well worth getting, particularly if 'new age' type music is your thing.........though Kitaro has much more personality than the standard fare in this genre.
