Review

This music-only Blu-ray discs delivers 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio if and when connections are made with 1.3 and/or 1.4 HDMI cables. If connected with optical cables it will only deliver 5.1 or 6.1 standard DTS quality sound. For the purpose of this review I only used high-speed 1.3 cables connecting the Blu-ray player and the 7.2 AV receiver. I should mention that the present receiver is one of Onkyo s new generation of THX-certified products built around high quality Burr-Brown DACs. The DTS-HD MA encoding of this recording as connected with 1.3 HDMI cables produces a variable bit rate (VBR), bit-for-bit (lossless) stream that includes 7.1 channels with sample rates of 96 kHz. Just as well the DTS-HD MA-encoded files also contain a backward-compatible DTS Digital Surround 5.1 (and 6.1) core with a bit rate of 1509 kbps. However, this review concerns itself only with 7.1 DTS-HD MA channels reproduction. The unique acoustic reality experience that his recording affords to my ears as to the musical phrasing and playing of these two very complex scorings, the orchestral presence, instrumental sections separation, high and low dynamics and instrumental solos are far superior to anything I have heard on so-called true surround recordings. We are placed at the same location that the conductor assumes in the podium, we are not part of the audience - we hear what the conductor hears. Orchestral sound is very close and all around, especially the sound coming out of the two side-surround speakers. In my mind the use of these side speakers totally redefines surround sound; this is a new experience and something to behold. --Audiophile Audition Review

I bought this set to explore the quality of surround sound recordings and I do know and like this selection of music. The good is that most of the discs sound very nice indeed and I enjoyed listening to it and will do many more times. The bad is that the box is very basic with no information about track numbers at all. Only the main pieces are listed. The recordings of Rachmaninoff were disappointing and they also mixed up the labels. Rachmaninoff was on the Mozart disc and Mozart on the Rachmaninoff disc. The only reason for the three stars is that it is a nice collection and 11 of the 12 discs sound good.

Glad that I came across this collection
that you amazon for fast delivery of my international order
now I know that my home theater is not just for watching movies in surround sound, it is for music as well and this collection was a great introduction to quality and advantages of Blu-ray Audio. May be it can be better with cover and some notes but the quality of sound bits it all.
Anyway 12 discs of quality high definition music under $60 even with international delivery is a great buy.
Five Stars without a question.

1. There are 2 discs ( Johan Strauss & Tsychovsky ) can't be played with my Denon A1 BD player and the rest can only go through AV center ( 7.1 ) , not through my pre-amp ( stereo ); but it's OK with Sharp BD recorder ( stereo ).
2. There is no booklet for the discs, no image of the titles, no other sound format, no thing else but discs, very unfriendly.
3. The sound stages are flat, not like Hi-Res should be.
4. It's a bargain for most of the music listeners.
