I'm not knocking you or anyone who likes the DVD-A personally. I didn't listen to it a lot over the years because I wasn't crazy about the vocals. After playing it a few times recently I was...

I just listened to the BD 5.1 of TYA and DVD-A 5.1 of Fragile. To put it simply, TYA beats, kicks, slaps, whips, shreds, embarrasses, shames, ridicules, tortures, makes fun of, and runs off with the...

Go to eBay and type in "demo disc". There's a huge selection. Dolby and DTS were releasing these every year at the shows (CES?) so there's more than one year to choose from. There's also a selection...

Yes Fragile in 5.1

A great interview with Steven Wilson that mentions Fragile will be coming out in a few months. I guess those who want Tales will have to wait a bit longer. :)

I've had a chance to listen a couple of times to the BD.

I just sold a Marantz VC-6001 that was totally reliable and sounded great with SACD's, so changers were available at one time. Other than a Yamaha CD changer, nothing is made today. If the OP insists...

All things being equal, hi-rez should easily trump vinyl. In real life, that's not the case. There are still too many instances where vinyl sounds better thanks to much better mastering.

Whatever the stream size is, I'm not crazy about COTC. I guess I'm used to the built in subwoofer of the MFSL vinyl. This sounds okay but there is something lacking IMO. I've listened a couple of...

He wasn't talking about SFTBC exclusively. It was about a number of unspecified HFPA's. The BD doesn't have Dolby? Or it doesn't work on yours? IMO, they should have spent their money on 5.1 for more...

Interesting. You may way want to contact Oppo about this. It may be something that can be corrected in the next FW update.

One thing I forgot to mention. Sometimes a player reset helps when clearing the PS. The only time the PS fix doesn't work is when there are authoring problems with the disc. Not surprising since we...

Bill

Clean out the Persistent Storage and shut off Deep Color and BD-Live on the Oppo. Bitstream should work then. :)

Thanks for the tip. I always loved the MFSL. The bass is absolutely earth shattering. I know about the MFSL smiley face EQ that the flat earthers have fits about, but I never cared. OTOH, it can't...

quadrophonicquad.com is a great site for reviews. They also have polls where people rate releases. Also check out SA-CD.net. Most releases will have some reviews as well as purchasing options.

I'd love to hear some impressions of COTC. The only reviews I've seen so far mention it's very bass heavy.
