    And it is worth nothing that Lucasfilm owns all that and does not have to wait for Sony's contract to end to begin working on them (re-transferring them).  They just can't release a commercial album with that material until Sony's license is over.
     
    But they could do the back end of the entire project now, and have it in stores the day after their contract ends.  That'd be awesome.

    The music stems as conformed to the final film is a less than desirable source for an album release, but they could still be used to fill some of the missing gaps of course. I was referring to unedited multi-track session elements. I'm confident most of them are archived somewhere safe and hopefully already digitally transferred.

    They clearly didn't, as evidenced by the 1997 sets, 2005 ROTS bonus DVD, and various video games all of which use material from the original session recordings

    Can't imagine Star Wars: Force Awakens winning, but I definitely think it should. I can imagine the film getting snubbed due to its financial success.

    Prequels sound the same to me
     
    The OT remasters are stunning.  Jedi sounds like it was recorded yesterday.  Empire sounds better than the 1997 SEs.
     
    Of course they are the LP programs, complete with the same old awful analog edits.  But still, the sound quality of the album masters is great here, Sony didn't screw that up one bit.

    That ^ which explain why some of the tracks on the special edition are so deteriorated. That and poor recording equipment.
    I have actually never owned any Star Wars CDs before, so if they are no different, well I guess that saves me the trouble of wanting to collect the various versions.

    As I was hoping, they're more coherent to the original sessions than anything we've seen before. At least from what I can hear. They're mastered for dynamic range and NOT loudness like all of the other scores are. They sound very organic, almost as if no mastering was done at all. I am pleased, but still eager to obtain a 192kHz copy from somewhere.
     
    I will be checking out the mastering of the CDs when I get them on Monday. I hear they are no different from any previous releases but we will see.

    Is it possible the prequels were naively recorded at 44.1khz?  That wouldn't be unprecedented for the era.
     
     
    The OT are of course fresh 192khz/24bit transfers of the old album masters.

    Depends. If you have or want the CD, I'd just go with that. Otherwise, I understand the best files out there to be the 16/44.1 FLAC files on any of the high res sites as they have slightly better range than the CD.

    Assuming there are no artifacts/defects on the high res versions like there were on The Force Awakens, then 7digital, HDTracks and PonoMusic all have the highest quality versions you can get (24-bit, 192 kHz). Of those three retailers, 7digital currently has the cheapest price.
