LAPQ Rupa-Khandha 7.1 96/24 DTS-HD MA Innovation anf Revelation

post #1 of 4

My first 7.1 BD-Audio. Finally realizing the full potential of my Paradigm
Signature 7.1 setup.

Disc has 3 layers, 7.1 96/24, 5.1 192/24, and PCM.

I have to say it started slow, and I was browsing on the tablet when after
a while I just could not stop listening.

Very rich filling sound, so clean and detailed I felt like in a studio.

With Steven Wilson's Raven and now this I made a firm believer in BD-Audio.

^ Let's see. I tweaked my 5.1 system (paradigm, by the way) about 9 days ago and have been living in audio nirvana since then. Now I see your post and the I can start to feel the anguish manifest itself again. Truly - congratulations on your 7.1 system! When I uttered the words "I don't need to buy anything else for my audio system" to my wife I could feel a flash of conflict within me. Your post explains why. That is a great post - 7.1 - wow! someday...

Can you describe the mix? I see that it was mixed at Skywalker Sound Studios. I purchased the Modern Cool (Patricia Barber) BD and the surround mix was done at Skywalker. I own over 150 5.1 discs and the surround mix on Modern Cool is very poor. It uses a lot of ambient sound in the rears which of course makes it not sound like surround at all. Steven Wilson and Elliot Scheiner mixes are the best IMO. The Modern Cool surround mix is absolutely nothing like the mixes that those 2 have produced. I am interested in buying this disc to see what the 5.1 192/24 mix is like but only if it is a nice discrete surround mix.

I enjoyed it, the detail level was bit too high, and sometimes the channels were a bit isolated.

Pat Barber's Modern Cool DSD stereo from Mobile Fidelity is stunning via my balanced setup with
the A1UDCI and CP-700 working in tandem.
