I really WAS thinking that way, Sean. But the deeper I read the reviews, the less amazing it seems the remastering is. Many said it was only a bit of an improvement. frown

As I remember it, the redbook version is still considered an outstanding reference.

So, no one has the Rush: Moving pictures Multi-channel Blu-Ray to offer a thumbs up or down?

Yes, I know the Amazon reviews are good, but I trust the more refined tastes of those here!

I'd be interested in it too.

I posted about it a little while ago (possibly a couple months ago) in the "what are you listening to" thread and it is a big thumbs up. The original is a reference CD for sure but the Multichannel and higher resolution does add a little more refinement, I feel it is worth spending money on again.

Thanks, Jason!

I was going to order some HDMI right-angle adapters for when I wall-mount the TV, and thought I would just throw that in the basket as well. I didn't want to be disappointed, though! smile

Emily Wells makes such great-sounding albums. I've already included her other two (well, her other two that you can actually get your hands on) in this thread, and I'm finding her new album just as intoxicating on a nice system. Mama has a lot of fine detail to savor, and the subtlety in her compositions demands my full attention. I've really enjoyed listening to it as an album at a respectable volume. While I'd still recommend The Symphonies: Dreams Memories & Parties as her most accessible if you're inclined to try her out, I'm impressed by the new paths her music is taking, and I simply have to comment on how GOOD her albums sound.

In any case, I bought the CD from Amazon.com, but iTunes has an exclusive bonus track version with an acoustic version of one of the songs ("Darlin'"). I bought that single track from them to go with my CD rip. I love both versions of the song.

I do, but I don't have a non BR version to compare it to. Both the multi-channel and the stereo versions on it are excellent though. I don't have the info to recommend it as an upgrade but I can recommend it as the version to get if a first time purchase.

I ordered it.... UPS should be here with it momentarily!

I anticipate a renewed interest in multi-channel audio with the VP160!

After always enjoying his work on the classical music station I listen to while driving, I finally got around to buying an Aaron Copland. The music should be instantly recognizable and it's quite accessible to classical newcomers (of which I still am). I'm not sure if these are the best interpretations of Copland's music, but the dynamics on this CD are exceptional. The opening drums on "Fanfare for the Common Man" will knock you down if you are not prepared.
