Try classics revival. The old songs were re mastered in digital format. They don't have the distortions. A few light instruments were added digitally only to improve clarity.
so can i go ahead and buy the kishore,rafi and mukesh classic reviva, version on flipkart. i am really disappointed by the mp3s i have now. so much distortion kills the joy of listening to these great singers. any other series having clean audio quality?
In general, I always go for 78 rpm/record rips from good sources when I want good quality. The reworked versions often take away something in the processing. I absolutely abhor the versions where the music has been re-recorded for that version.
In general, those released by Virgin and others are better than the HMV ones according to me. (Megaphone's released CD set on Kanan Devi was excellent too).
Many 78/record rips of ancient and old songs can be found on Prof Surjit's site though some are radio rips or could use cleaning.

the revival audio cds are way better than the Revival mp3s
Go for it!
@hemant, I use my i ball 2.1 speakers. Yes! There's a difference in quality. But revivals, obviously have quality loss (none have I encountered).
Madan Mohan's son came up with the concept of revivals.
They sound pretty good (lata forever 5 cd set has the best quality among revivals).
I'm fond of them for other reasons. I normally appreciate the original ones. But some saregama cds sound squelchy (old songs). I hope they restore and clean the tracks with no phony stuff and degradation.
I've heard it using various equipments and it always sounds fancier than the original. I've used my skull candy head phones too. And it sound fancier. Just try it out.
