Thanks for the head up OP.

Well -- it works fine in the PS3 fatty. But I was a bit disappointed to see that it is all 2.0 channel recordings. I know I should have read the product description better .. but the disk is great for two-channel music.

Hey babe ... at least I am not into motorcycles or boats ... that's real money.

Ordered by Grrr on Amazon US.

If all the High Fidelity Pure Audio releases from Universal are region free,
then I just might get all from France:

Definitely worth the wait then, the huge American market will drive prices down quickly.

Grrr in da house!

I was tired so i left the A1UDCI on the 7.1 analog out via the PR-SC5509
and enjoyed the first 7 songs that way, still Stereo but single ended,
#6 what a hoot!

Then I smacked myself realizing what I had done. A click on the Harmony
and the processor is off balanced audio injected into the CP-700. Ruby
Tuesday I never thought it could sound so good!

The poorly mixed tracks are very few, 50 tracks!!!!

Hail to BD PCM 24-bit/96kHz in this case.

Oppo 105 owners should invest in a balanced stereo
preamp and interconns just to see what they can get
out of recordings like this one, Audiogon Forums good
place to start. I wish they segregated the "Receivers,
Amps, and Processors" forum a bit to separate audiophile
gear from the receivers and elevate the standards a bit.

Addendum: listening to Brown Sugar, oh the mastery, mixing
the colors:)

Great, superb disc, I will buy more just for friends' Christmas presents.

I was born in the 70ies, so these songs are engraved in my brain
as dad kept spinning the LPs almost every evening since I can remember myself.

IIRC, Grr is a Euro only release. Check Amazon UK, though sellers like Music Direct and the like are selling them. Also check ImportCD's. All the HFPA discs are Euro first as of now. There was a exclusive deal with Amazon France (if I'm wrong about the seller someone please correct this) before general release but that should have expired by now. They had announced a few months ago the HFPA's would be released in the US directly but I'm not even sure that has happened yet. The US rollout, like just about everything else about these things has been a mess.

I bought this disc in September 2013 from Amazon UK for £9.12 (currently it's £13.52). But I have see it available for as little as £6.00 on some UK web sites...

Amazon UK has surprisingly good international shipping rates. I ended up paying less than $20 total for this disc, IIRC.

Yeah, and the stuff gets here in a bout a week. I got Grr for about 20 bucks as well.

I've been meaning to ask for a while but the first 2 audio options sound great but when i switch it to the third option 'dolby hd' the sound drastically gets quiter. I've not had this happen on other blu ray / sacd's. is it a disc fault? (i'm playing this on my Sony blu ray system)

They should all sound the same or just about the same, there shouldn't be a big drop off audio wise going from PCM to Dolby True. It may be a disc fault. When this disc first came out there were complaints about switching from one format to the other. Some disc players did it with no problem some had fits. As long as PCM and DTS play fine I wouldn't worry about it.

Thanks for the reply. It sounds fine with the first 2 audio settings so I won't worry too much
