Recommended Surround Sound Music DVD? - 12/05/17 12:31 AM

Hey folks
After reading Alan's blog on the value of surround sound music, I am interested in getting a music bluray for my brother (who has 5.1).
Any recommendations? Safe bet = acoustical folksy.

Needs to be able to play on an older bluray player.

PS...I'll be taking recommendations seriously myself (PS3 is my current player, which I understand won't work with some options- at least not in full capacity).

As always, thank you in advance.

I use a Sony S1500 its an entry model any thing should do as long as not 1st gen. For the audio what ever receiver will be doing that processing for you.

sorry, wasn't clear. Looking for actual album recommendations, in the acoustical genre. Think female singer/songwriters. I'm completely oblivious to good recordings in the bluray surround sound camp.

I think most of the attention for multi-channel music has been for bigger sound - classical music and particularly progressive rock. Singer-songwriter recordings would gain ambiance; worthwhile, but probably not fireworks.

One you might consider is Amy Winehouse Live in London - I Told You I Was Trouble. Not acoustic, but fantastic performances, excellent sound and video.

I think I saw somewhere that Jewel had a concert Blu-ray.

Other than that, I'm not sure. You could check listings and reviews at blu-ray.com...

Not sure why your PS3 wouldn't work for this. I haven't used mine for 6 months or so, but up to then I didn't find a disc it wouldn't play (well there was one but it was a manufacturing issue and the disc was replaced).

The two best sources for multi-channel usual genres music are . . .
AIX

Off the AIX link above...
"This disc was shot using HD video equipment and is compatible with all blu-ray players. However, the HD-Audio, which is encoded in Dolby TrueHD cannot be played back on a Sony PS3. The legacy audio will play instead."

I saw that disclaimer as well, which is strange considering the PS3 was a benchmark blu ray player in its day!

Thansk for the tips

I own a small collection of concert Blu-rays. It would be a bigger collection, but most of the artists I listen to don't really have the name recognition to move units. I'm sure I'm biased, but of the ones I own, the two Regina Spektor Blu-rays are my favorites. The Bjork one has really impressive sound quality and visuals, but it's not her most accessible material.

One of the best surround sound music DVD's I have heard to date is by The Pineapple Thief (Where We Stood).
