Love it, love it, love it!
on January 30, 2011
This title includes a Hybrid CD/SACD (multichannel) and a music Blu ray disc. So far I've just listened to the SACD. I expect the Blu ray to be as good or better.
The recording quality is absolutely fantastic (some of the best I've heard!) and I really like the music. If only we could get this kind of quality from the more mainstream music industry.
The only negative for me is the surround mix on a couple of pieces. The surround mix on some pieces puts you in the middle of the performance (the liner notes even mention some pieces were recorded with the musicians placed in a circle with the mics in the center). While I like the effect with some music, there are pieces where I would prefer the performance in front of me with the surrounds used to capture the ambience of the venue. No matter, this set does include options for 2 channel listening on both the SACD and BD for those that prefer 2 channel.
