Yes the I agree Quebec Magnetic Bluray is very good. I have not had to adjust my audio, but everyone system is different.

Last night I watched Coldplay Live 2012 (blu-ray). I am a big Coldplay fan and found this concert to be one of the best concerts I have ever seen when I saw them in Chicago at the United Center. For the concert, they handed everyone a colorful wristband....what we didnt know is that at the start of the show, in sync with the audio, everyones wristband lit up in various colors and pulsated along with the music...it was one of the coolest, almost euphoric feelings, i have ever experienced....the sound, the lasers, the wristbands and bam, the concert starts...

This concert was done very well. PQ is top notch shown at 2.36:1 and the AQ is great as well giving you a choice between LPCM, Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS HD-Master..pick your favorite as they all sounded good. I found myself settling in on the LPCM as it just sounded better, when normally I go for one of the 5.1 offerings.

This is mostly live footage of their 2012 convert tour of Mylo Xyloto album. There are maybe 3 or 4 instances of when one of the band members (mostly Chris Martin) will provide a dialogue voice over between songs, its short and fitting. Also, the footage is captured from various venues. So its not a concert shown from start to finish at one venue but it is done well and pretty seamlessly so its not a distraction at all.

If you get a chance, give this concert a view.

EDIT: I wanted to add one last thing. This filmed concert contacts the use of the F word 2 or 3 times. I didnt really mind it, but I took my 13 and 10 year old to the concert because Coldplay is a great band for the family IMHO, but I was kind of surprised by the choice to include the F word in this release. However, the kids may not even pick up on it anyways...just wanted to let you know...this is why they had the EXPLICIT WARNING label on the packaging.

For explicit warnings about words you should watch last Adele BD from ROYAL ALBERT HALL, excellent performance and sound, but my God, her language could be split among many Coldplays. Multiply their 2-3 times by twenty, that will be about it. Metallica BD has no warning, Adele's has biggrin.gif

Sorry to see this. I have a fair collection of the "Montreux Jazz Festival" concert DVD's & BD's, and he was well respected and a friend of some of the bands that were important to me. R.I.P. Claude.

I'm very interested, but, I don't see it available for pre-order anywhere. It's just a bit short of a month away...

It wasn't there when I first looked, got it pre-ordered...
post #8232 of 8898

Thanks, got it preordered too. I've been waiting a long time for this to be released on bluray.
post #8233 of 8898
I'll be waiting for the reviews, seeing as I have it on dvd

but if they take as much care of this release as they have done with the dvds, it should be a killer.

I wish they would re-release Hell Freezes Over on BD....widescreen and HD audio would be awesome.
post #8235 of 8898
I've got Farewell on HDDVD...I'm hoping the BR is mixed a little hotter on the low end.
post #8236 of 8898
Yes a little hotter would be good,I got totally spoiled with Jeff beck(live at Ronnie Scotts) for bottom end biggrin.gif..
post #8237 of 8898
I might have to say that the Eagles Farewell from Melbourne DVD could be the best sounding concert DVD I've heard. Nice and crystal clear. The bass on Long Run is great and Hotel California turned up really loud is awesome!

Very gnaw-worthy, indeed.

One day I went absolutely crazy looking for my DVD of Farewell. About six months later it hit me that it was an HDDVD that I had had LOL. Hi-def wars...those were the days eh?smile.gif
post #8242 of 8898
I have my HDDVD Farewell up for sale now. I've kept the player in my rack strictly for that one disc. Time to sell that too....if there's a market.
post #8243 of 8898
+1. You're not alone but I kept both the disc and the player.
post #8244 of 8898
I recently picked up Coldplay 2012. pq ,sq and most of all perfromance all top notch. A true test for color saturation.

I was a casual Zep fan back in the day. Got kind of burnt out on them.Every time I turned the radio, sth or some other Zep tune was on. I came to appreciate them more in the last few years. I wasn't expecting much from celebration day given their age and years apart. Man I was wrong. GREAT show. Sure, Robert can't hit the notes he used to but knew his limitations. Highly recommended.

My HDDVD sold and Farewell Tour is on pre-order! They dropped the price at Amazon to $16.99
post #8246 of 8898
Pretty sad when we start buying old titles in a different format bc there ain't nothing new worth looking at.
post #8247 of 8898
Ain't that the truth... I've now purchased this one in 3 formats....and a 4th disc if you count HFO.

This niche market is growing, but there are still very few examples worth owning, for me.

Anyone notice the lack of bass on the Celebration Day BD?eek.gif

Yep me too. Even the disc doesn't load the 1st time...... for me anyways. I ripped it to an external HDD connected to my Oppo and the same thing.

But when it does load, I run it in 2 channel and apply AnthemLogic Music mode so it plays thru all speakers.....the sound is much fuller and the low end is much more pronounced. Just a FYI.
