the first time i listened to Jackie Evancho's Blu-ray concert "Dream with me", i found it a bit lacking in athmosphere and presence and thought a couple of times that there was a little bit of distortion in the orchestra sound, so i listened again yesterday and found that the vol. was not set right.
at -8 dB re. Ref. Level/PCM 5.1, it's excellent.

it will "rock" you.

Good question - what is the "Experience" version? Doesn't look like surround/hi-rez.

Just the SACD:

It's $35 and they probably add shipping to the wound.

Downloaded and listened to the ATO Records Fall Sampler:
http://atorecords.com/featured/free-13-track-sampler/
Quite a random collection.

I liked "My Morning Jacket – Victory Dance", but particularly enjoyed "Danny Barnes – Fun".

Thanks Henry and David-
This didn't show up at Amazon the other day when I searched for "Wish You Were Here" (now either, as I checked again and only get the standard Redbook, the huge immersion box set and the "Experience" two-disc version.

Jeeez, they really know how to market this stuff! frown

Little Boots - "Shake"

New music. I'm still fairly indifferent toward her. I like a couple of her songs.

I'm not a Holiday music kinda guy, and I never bought "Natalie Cole Sings With the Dead," but...

Amy Winehouse/Tupac Shakur: "A Christmas Duet"
got my attention.

It has all your old faves, digitally sampled and smashed together like razzleberry pie.

*Black Christmas for Whitey
*Santa Ain't Sh--
*Pine Cones and Needles
*My Yiddish Kwanza
*Silent Nights (A perpetual loop "round")
*Slay Bells
*Rudolph was my Dealer
*Holiday Tats
*My DirtNap Angel
*I'm Fixin' for Chistmas

And my all time favorites,
*The Little Gunner Boy"
("....this is my gift to you, a-rat-a-tat-tat...")
AND
*Chestnuts Roasting, Open Fire!

The recording isn't up to snuff, but its' just for a couple of weeks a year.
