I am thinking about getting this japanese edition too, but 1st i really wanna know if this technology sounds BETTER than a normal CD. If there's a clear difference between playing the "normal" cd and this one. Thanks a lot to whoever answers my question ;-)

It really depends what you'll be listening on... You might hear a small difference on a high end audio system or audiophile headphones. But not on earbuds or earpods in a noisy environment. It's nothing to get really excited about imo.

I have a NAD CD player and tuner, almost 20 years old. I am into audio quality and I can definitely confirm shmcd‘s sound better. More precise, powerful audio quality. Everything sounds clearer and richer.

I really wouldn't know if there's a real difference BUT I had these Madame X flac files which were 16 bits and then I got the 24 bits ones and they are definitely superior. I guess it's a similar situation. I've got the Japanese regular edition but I don't want to open it lol

The sound of the japanese SHM cd is far better than regular cd.On my AirPods I can hear the difference on the first listen.
I only listen to this version.

I dont know about the SMH cd's, but I bought the 24-bit version of the album on 7Digital in Canada, and there is DEFINITELY a difference in quality on that one, even from my CD rip.
Like, damn! Where there was slight distorsion at the end of Extreme Occident on the cd rip for example, there is none on the 24-bit version. The bass is cleaner on all songs and they just sound fuller, overall.

It makes for an incredible listen on quality headphones.
I recommend it to everyone.
