URIAH HEEP: 'Live At Koko, London 2014'


AUDIO OPTIONS 2.0 STEREO ONLY.


Wrote a review @ Amazon and they wouldn't post it.


Just saying, most likely will sound just fine, but don't we all expect TrueHD or at least 5.1 surround on Blu-ray concerts nowadays?

Last night I watched Shania Still the One blu-ray. I enjoyed it. There is no profane language or slutty costumes just good music. I listened to the DTS-HD master audio track and the sound was good.

May I ask where you purchased it? The seller on Amazon says that his Bluray is a Region 2 disc (http://www.amazon.com/Shania-Twain-S...=still+the+one ) which will not play in North America. Thanks!

but I digress......

To make sure it will play on a region A player I just tried it on my old Samsung 1400 and it played fine.It was released by Eagle Rock
and I never had a problem with any of their discs.

Could somebody clear up my confusion between PCM stereo and Dolby 2.0 stereo.I find in many of my concert dvds if it has a PCM option and I play them in PCM stereo using 7 Speaker stereo option on my receiver the sound is superior to Dolby digital5.1 and DTS.If PCM is not an option but dolby 2.0 stereo is on a disc the sound is not as good as Dolby 5.1 and DTS.
Have always used DTS or dolby 5.1 to play concert dvds and finding PCM stereo sounds even better has confused me.I always thought DTS or 5.1 was best option to use.

PCM is essentially the uncompressed version of the audio. Most sound tracks get compressed using Dolby or DTS. You receiver then uncompresses them back to PCM for playback. Dolby and DTS are lossy so if comparing two channel Dolby to PCM the PCM should be better in theory. DTS-MA and Dolby True HD compress the audio but are lossless and therefore it should match the original PCM.

Agreed. Picked this up last week, thought it was well done also. Audio & video were particularly good.

Hoping to get Bonamassa's Red Rock concert and the Musicares Paul McCartney one as well this week.
