About sound quality – I own the tri-color original and this one hands down sounds incomparably better! Amazing clarity of voice, instruments, bass is in a right place – just a perfect balance! Balance is a key word here. To me it is the best sounding Hendrix ever. And it is not easy for me to say that because in 99.9% I prefer originals or early pressings to reissues. This reissue may just change my mind. Highest recommendations! P.S. Listened on Project-Debut III with ortofon 5E.
