    The audio on the Blu-ray is 24/96 (which is already better quality than this new "MQS" edition at 24/44.1) BUT some of the tracks on the Blu-ray use live versions of these songs. Sure, "Love Me Do" and "She Loves You" weren't remixed in 2015 so their 24bit versions from the 2009 USB stick are still available…
    BUT, this new edition adds 24bit upgrades to the 2015 remixes of "From Me to You", "Can't Buy Me Love", "A Hard Day's Night","Yesterday" , "Hey Jude", AND "The Long and Winding Road"

    I think this is a rather clever idea, for the people who still wants physical format. (and you can have hires audio – which is better than cd).

    BUT…. what about the life duration of such an SD card ? Isn't that a very fragile format ? That can be easily erased, lost, or broken ?

    Let's wait and see.

    A neat idea — physical merged with digital, keeping both happy — but I'd like to see it used on new albums to register if it sticks around or disappears quickly like DAT and DCC.

    Sorry I'm dumb: Where's the video link?

    The crucial information needed: Has the music been hyper compressed to make it “louder”? Doesn’t matter how hi-res it is if it’s been rendered unlistenable by compression.

    This is not how music was meant to be made and certainly not how the Beatles and George Martin made it.
    No Pepper without the glorious 12′ album cover? No Red and Blue albums in all their red and blue coloured vinyl splendour and those iconic Angus McBean staircase photos?

    Paul McCartney was right when he said a Beatles album was a whole package: record, cover art and so on. He remembered marveling at a brand new album he bought when he was a lad and countless millions of others have done the same. There’s nothing like that magic and this soulless crap is destroying it. And why the hell are they fannying about with ‘1’ for the umpteenth time while Let It Be’s deluxe reissue is delayed? Shoddy.
