Ha ha, no kidding! About the only commonality is surround Just finished Let It Snow, it's a mighty fine Elliot Scheiner mix......it also helps if you like traditional Christmas music with jazz harmonies
Are these the same mixes as the titles in the Perception release?
Yes, they are the same 5.1 mixes.
"The surround sound program on the Doors SACDs comes from the original 96K, 24-bit files mixed and mastered by Bruce Botnick for the DVD Audio Doors/Perception release. Those mixes were made from the original 8-track, 15 i.p.s. analog master tapes, with the exception of The Doors, which was recorded on 4-track. For the SACDs, the mixes were then up-sampled without filters to DSD using the Weiss Saracon format converter and authored by Gus Skinas at the Super Audio Center."

5 CD + 3 Blu-ray + download / hardcover edition
the download is available in Surround or Stereo, Wav or Flac, 24/192 or 24/96

This is a must own collection for EVERY music enthusiast. Classical may not be your preferred genre but the inclusion of this new release masterpiece, is essential.
Rattle brings power, clarity and definition with the Digital Concert Hall capturing every note in it's purity.
Beethoven performed to perfection, interpreted in genius and captured at the apex of recording technology.
What else can be said?
Thanks for the tip. I ordered this through Presto Classical for a bit less than Amazon and am starting to get through the bluray audio disc. I have always liked Simon Rattle's work and I am really impressed with the collection so far. I tried to download the FLAC files from the website, however, but it is really slow then fails. Is this typical of the B-P site or am I just having some bad luck? I have no issues downloading ZIP files from other sources.
