WOIO Cleveland, OTA
Edit: Audio sounds equally crappy from either venue (I guess they are splitting this between MGM and Mandalay Bay -- odd)
Why even bother presenting the show in DD 5.1 if they are going to mix the musical performances as stereo?
The only DD 5.1 mixing being done is having the presenters in the center channel and the audience in the L & R front and surrounds.
For the Zach Brown band performance at different arena the audio is L & R fronts only with a little sound from the center and nothing in the surrounds.
Even the performances at MGM where the awards show is are only L & R stereo.
The giant video panels and strobe lights causing massive macroblocking on the performances.
The sound reminds me of how bad the playoffs were on ABC for the NCAA a couple of weeks ago.
Besides our video looking like absolute crap when anything moves due to this lame affiliate here with 10Mbs or less for HD, the audio in surround is total garbage. Reba's and Blake come through the center channel, but 2 channel stereo for the performances? There's more coming out my rear than what's coming out my rear speakers.
WDJT Milwaukee gets a D- for video quality
CBS gets a F for sound quality.
The biggest show for Country music..........get real.
I'm officially calling this a train wreck!
If a movie or concert video or a TV show isn't on blu ray it darn well should be.
It's amazing they refuse to mix them in DD 5.1.
The Rascal Flatts song sounds horrible.
At one point the drums were almost not audible and the vocals were way to loud.
The jokes by Blake and Reba and their insulting each other are mostly unfunny.

A DIY high school project (now complete and being enjoyed everyday)
Blake has a heavy reverb on his mic while Lionel has none.
Even though the performance went past 11pm CBS cut the performance off when the credits were done.
Pretty embarrassing ending for an awards show.
I only wish the CMA's were on CBS, which in my market dedicates their whole payload to CBS HD and it shows
