Yes. Excellent recording & sound. Worth the investment, especially if any of the pieces featured are of interest to you.

Yes, the sound is excellent, and the picture razor sharp. Could make out the Buffet logo on the first clarinet!

But I really liked the slower pacing of the video switching in the Perlman concerto much better than Billy the Kid, which was frenetic and annoyingly distracting. C'mon, it's a concert, not a 30-sec commercial. I don't need to see every valve being pushed up close and personal. That's what HD video is for -- pull back and let us see the ensemble interact.

Unfortunately, this is a common characteristic of SFS productions. I guess that's one way to get me back into Davies, but the trek has increased from 30 to 500 miles now that I live in Oregon.

Next time I watch it, the video will be off. wink.gif

Awesome.

So, do you think that from now on with these Tru HD 96/24 releases, will they be expensive like this? $60 on amazon!

^^ I got it for $35 direct from SFS. Make sure to change from the default UPS to USPS shipping to same there, too.

I used the promo code "Dolby" that gave me 10% off. $34 including shipping at the Symphony Store.

Fake 96kHz from 48kHz recording, sigh! rolleyes.gif

Should have been an original real 96kHz recording. People who support fake upsampling are sending a wrong message to the studios.

Audiosceptics accept audio trials using 25 people. A recent Oxford study with over 353,000 patient records from 639 separate clinical trials shows for every 1,000 people taking diclofenac or ibuprofen there would be 3 additional heart attacks, 4 more cases of heart failure and 1 death every year.

I got this disk the other day (thanks for the discount code!), and really enjoyed the performance. Like Roger says, it looks like the same production team, or at least one with very similar style, as in previous SFSO videos put it together. So if you like those, you'd like this video. The audio sounded good, but I wish they had included the 48 kHz track so we could compare soundtracks. There would be other issues with the comparison, but at least it would be possible.

Actually, I wonder if the original recording was 48 kHz, because they've certainly done SACD in the past. Obviously, it's lower than 96 kHz otherwise the TrueHD upsampling wouldn't be there.
