DVD-A of Floyd's Wish You Were Here

post #1 of 280
Thread Starter 
Anyone come across this and listened to it yet?

How does it compare with the DSOTM DVD-A?
post #2 of 280
I was not aware of this, but found it here on a google search

http://www.torrentz.com/torrent_826664.html

Where did this come from? Any info on who did it? I've been begging the gods for a MC remaster of "Animals", but this'll do, as long as its legal. ????

Thanks guys for the heads up. Currently downlading, probably will take a couple of days until completion. Keeping my fingers crossed that it's at least as good as DSOTM.

Interesting.

I wonder if it's truly "DVD-A quality", or was it simply made at a lower quality using the DVD-A format?
post #5 of 280
I've seen it reported that it was done by the same individual that did the dsotm dvd-a. I consider dsotm dvd-a quality.

That is what it says:

"made by the same guy who done the dsotm half inch parsons dvd-a".

I was just hoping there was someone here who had actually heard it, and could provide some more detail.

I consider the DSOTM one to be "DVD-A quality", as well (sorry, didn't mean to imply otherwise). Just wasn't sure if this was the "real deal" or some amateur attemp at copycatting what was done with the DSOTM DVD-A.

I'll download it over the next several evenings.

Cool. I've been waiting for "Animals", too, but this will do (I have both on CD).

At less than 2 gbs, isn't the file size a bit small...? How big was the DSOTM DVD-A?

You are looking at a different WYWH than the one I am referring to.

The image I am talking about is 3.6GB.
post #11 of 280
DSOTM was over 3 gb's, so less than 2 is very small.
post #12 of 280
Looks like the server is down...
post #13 of 280
If we're all looking at a < 2 GB file and it's not the same one as the one Benefactor was looking at, where is the 3.6 GB one?

While the downloadable DVD-A version of WYYH might have a number of qualities, I think legal is probably not one of them

Just to make sure, there is no current "official" WYWH DVD-A right?

Right.
post #18 of 280
The file size looks to be about right. This is DVD-Audio image only, no Dolby Digital or DTS, so it should be smaller than DSOTM.

So we are all on the same page - this one is a 3.6GB file. It is listed as DVD-A/MLP/DD/DTS.
post #20 of 280
No, both links are for a 1.8 GB MLP DVDA image only
post #21 of 280
How about this link for Animals dvda?

http://www.torrentbox.com/torrents-details.php?id=54491

Uploaded by the same guy that uploaded WYWH. 1.64GB (close to WYWH)

If you guys want to exchange torrent links it would be better to do it via PM or this thread will get closed. Discussing the contents of the downloads is fine, but you are linking to sites offering 'illegal' material and this will cause problems for AVS.

Regarding the 1.87 GB dvd-a ISO's

Dolby tracks dont take up much space, not nearly enough to account for half the size of the image (compared to dsotm dvda)

If you read that comment closely from the link (to a wywh 1.87 torrent) above it says

"Sourced from the cd remaster. Shine on, Syd. 1. Shine On You Crazy Diamond pt1/ Welcome to the Machine 2. Have a Cigar 3. Wish You Were Here/ Shine On You Crazy Diamond pt2"

CD remaster probably meaning it came from the DTS version??

I am betting that it's just a decoded DTS version reencoded to 44.1/24 MLP since it'd be pointless to upsample to 96/24.. it'd also explain the roughly halved size. If so it'll be close to exact in quality to the DTS version and not worth the effort to dl IMO..

I dont know about the 3.x GB version as mentioned in the thread though, havent seen it.

EDIT: removed links

I didn't mean to cause any problems, I was just trying to throw some information out there, and maybe get some feedback in return.

Sorry.
post #25 of 280
I'm unaware of any Pink Floyd CDs being officially released in the DTS CD format, so maybe someone converted them from the Quad Vinyl. Still worth checking out though.
post #26 of 280
What's the deal? Did Waters go mad and release some tape on the net? I would love some higher definition verisons of Floyd albums besides Dark Side of the Moon. Ummagumma to start...

No, we are NOT on the same page. The torrent for WYWH is NOT for a 3.6GB file. Whoever made these 2 dics available says clearly that they are NOT hybrid/universal DVD-As (they do not contain DD/DTS tracks), and only playable on DVD-A players.

So please provide us with the torrent link for the 3.6GB WYWH download you speak of.

Yeah, that's what I was worried about.
post #29 of 280
I'm still not convinced the file size is unusual. According to DVDShrink, the DVD-Video part of the DSOTM DVDA is 1.8 GB which leaves another 1.6 GB for the MLP portion, which is comparable to these downloads.

Now it still may be an DTS rip of another source that has been upsampled to MLP, but I don't believe the smaller file size indicates anything.

That is correct and means this one was not copied from an official "Wish You Were Here" DVD-A. Of course that only means this version is a bootleg. It is reputedly a very good bootleg.
