* Story Highlights
* Remastering work subtly expands the band's sound from its earlier days
* Many audible delights emerge to the surface because of the remastering
* Listening all but feels like being in a musty studio watching the band perform
* There's something new even for fans who've listened to the songs countless times
(CNN) -- The newly remastered Beatles box sets are a treat for a casual fan and a dream come true for die-hards.
The new box sets are expected to introduce the Beatles to yet another younger generation.

The new box sets are expected to introduce the Beatles to yet another younger generation.

The mono set may be revelatory for some, but even the box of stereo albums -- the best-known versions and the primary sales focus -- is a step up from the 22-year-old original CD releases.

Need proof?

Check out "Lovely Rita," from 1967's "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band."

The shimmering guitar intro, followed by Paul McCartney's soaring "Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh," the bouncy bass line and John Lennon and George Harrison's smirky backing vocals, offers delicious ear candy that doesn't rot your teeth.

Many other audible delights emerge to the surface more often than they did in the prehistoric days of vinyl and cassette because of the remastering.
