I have that and used it to show off my main stereo pair. My guest complained that "Of course, your system will sound great with such a great Blu-ray recording! How about a normal CD?"
My reply was, "I didn't buy this rig to listen to 'normal' CDs. The average CD actually sounds worse on a better system, as all the deficiencies become more obvious."
Of course, there are a lot of better than normal CDs, so I pulled out a couple and gave him what he wanted. Afterward we moved to a multi-channel system and put in "Grace...", and he had nothing at all to say when he got the full surround. He just shook his head as if to imply, "Why can't all music sound this good?"
