If a movie or concert video or a TV show isn't on blu ray it darn well should be.

I've spent the last few days re-living my high school "Daze", listening to the first three remastered Led Zeppelin albums that were released last week. Jimmy Page really got these right and I can't wait to hear the next three. I'm really curious to see if he can rescue IV though. I've never heard a stellar release of that album.

McIntosh MX121. McIntosh MC205. PS Audio DirectStream DAC. Bryston Model T, Mini-T Center. Focal Electra IC 1002 In-Ceiling Surrounds. Paradigm Studio Sub 15. Oppo BDP-105D. Roku XS. Roku 3. Apple TV(3). "Silenzio" EA-2 Media Server (pc-based). DirecTV. Panasonic TC-P65VT50. Samsung UN40FH6030F, URC MX-780.

You can try Barnes and Noble.


I recently bought the following DVD-A's from them:


R.E.M.: In Time, the Best of $21.65
Foreigner: 4 $7.09


Pretty fast shipping too.

Did you say there was a brown Haze in the room as you relived your school days?

$7.09 don't seem right. I think we are either going to get a CD or order cancelled.

Yeah, could be. I just ordered this, but does anybody know how the DVD-Audio compares to the new Foreigner SACDs? I do have the Foreigner MoFi SACD and it sounds great. But I do also enjoy the on screen features of DVD-Audio. I figured, for $10 including shipping, I couldn't go wrong here, assuming this is indeed the DVD-Audio.

Mine is scheduled to ship tomorrow so I should have it by the end of the week.


I did a quick search on the UPC listed and the results only list a 1995 remastered CD.

Album Notes
Atlantic's Gold Standard Audiophile Compact Discs are gold-plated CD's that boast 20-bit digital reproduction technology for improved sonic dynamics. Each re-issue comes in a specially designed mini-box which includes the jewel CD box plus a 24-page color booklet featuring new liner notes, photographs, and the complete original album artwork


Likewise I did a search of the R.E.M. DVD-A UPC I ordered (and received) earlier and it correctly came up with the DVD-A so this is not encouraging. If this is indeed the case I really apologize for passing along bad information.

I reject your reality and substitute my own.
