I had the DSPTM SACD but so far only listen to it once and not the whole SACD, the mixes are really good and with this thread, I am gonna take it out and listen again.

Another DVD-A to test the surround sound is Blue Man Group's Audio, wonderful demo material and if you wanted to test your sub-woofer for accuracy and speed, this is the one to get.

to source for SACD:-

and for DVD-Audio:-

Man... I've loved this SACD since the day it was released. smile

I've heard it on vinyl as a kid (when it was released).

And Quadraphonic (4 channel surround) vinyl once a little a later.

Heard it way overplayed on the radio.

Heard the early (crappy) cd re-masters.

And subsequent (much better) re-re-masters.

It's a work that I love and know like the back of my hand.

An album that stayed on the charts in perpetuity.

But I would KILL to hear the SACD with virgin ears!!!

Seriously, you must be pretty young not to have ever heard it. Or did you live on a remote and isolated island? smile

I envy you!!!

It's a brilliant work of art that has stood the test of time.

And remember, the inspiration for DSOTM (and pretty much all of Pink Floyd's post Barrett albums) is the decline and descent into madness (and back again) of their charismatic founder and front man...

Syd Barrett (6 January 1946 – 7 July 2006)

How bad must Syds feet have smelled to drive that poor nekkid woman to the farthest corner of the room?

Lmao!

This is why I spend such an inordinate amount of time on this forum. All of you are so damn funny, cool and entertaining.

That and the fact that I love, and passionately believe in, the greatness and quality of Axiom speakers. grin

A big thanks to Ian (and all that work at Axiom!) for bringing so much listening enjoyment to the masses at a ridiculously reasonable price.

Peace, love and happy holidaze to all of you! smile

I first heard DSOTM when it first came out on LP. Years passed and rediscovered this gem after building my HT (SACD format). Great then...even better today. Work of art is so many respects.

Although PF's "Pulse" concert has been out for some time, this DVD is equally spectacular. Best visual show to date IMO. It's performed without Roger Waters but that doesn't take anything away.

I received the BR of David Gilmore - Live at Royal Albert Hall for Christmas, I would highly recommend this disc to add to any Pink Floyd fan's collection
