I realise this question has probably been asked to death, but are 2004 Sony versions worth it in terms of sound quality versus the 1997 RCA issues ?

I have the 1997 RCA issues (jewel case & booklet versions), and won't be giving these up for anything. However I am considering getting the 2004 versions, despite the above review touting minimal improvements soundwise.

Whlist not having a ridiculously high end hifi, mine is fairly good. These soundtracks are also the select few CDs that I have ripped at 320kbs for my iPod.

Does anyone who already has both the 1997 RCA and 2004 Sony versions care to offer their thoughts on the (potential) differences in sound and mastering ?
