Yes, the recordings have been newly remastered by www.b-sharp.biz. Writing for The Chicago Tribune, music critic John von Rhein says, "Careful engineering evidently has gone into sweetening some of the dryness and harshness of the originals, while the backgrounds (which sounded rather muddled in previous reissues) appear to have been brought forward with greater clarity. The remasterings respect the recorded balances sanctioned by Heifetz: violin close-up, orchestras rather in the distance. You are unlikely ever to hear the fiddler of the century in better sound than what Sony provides here."
