Default Wham! The Final (K2HD CD) [2014, SONY]

New Remaster CD by SONY. Is this new remaster CD valuable?


Data: 2014-07-16 & 2014-08-01
Country: Hongkong & USA
Pack: Album, 1CD


Info: Numbered, Limited Edition. Only 1000 Copies Limited.This recording has been mastered by the K2 HD format of 24-bit 100kHz, which creates an unbelievable sound surpassing other formats!

The Final is a compilation released in 1986 to summarize the career of British pop duo Wham!. The album was not initially released in North America, where Wham's third and final studio album Music from the Edge of Heaven was released instead. Four songs from that album appear on this compilation. For many, it remains the definitive Wham! purchase containing all the hits, most of them in their single mixes.

"For fans of their brief but very successful reign at the top of the pop charts, this hard-to-find collection packs the most bang (or Wham!) for its buck." -Jose F. Promis, allmusic.com

• Numbered, Limited Edition (Only 1000 Copies)
• K2 HD 100kHz / 24-bit Mastering

It seems that they are not all limited ? A bit confusing since most of sellers have only front picture (which is similar)

btw, have found on amazon japan best of wham cd from 2014 released by Pigeon, 株式会社ピジョン http://www.pigeon-net.jp/#
cat number is 4560179135522 but unfortunately no any other non-japanese website with this cd.

Numbered edition is more valuable than non numbered at the moment but still available to buy in small amounts on ebay but once they gone the price will rise, thats for sure, so I would buy a copy now better then to pay twice as much in a few months then.
