Wow what a great thread this is Gents. Too bad no one is posting to it these days.
I'm a long time nut for Concerts on Disks. I have over 200 on DVDs, and once I heard a Blu-Ray on a decent system I immediately moved over. I've reworked one of our HT systems to Dolby Atmos and have started to revisit some of the Blu-Rays.
It took 8 pages for someone to mention my #1
. And weekendtoy got it right!. So far Clapton's Slowhand at 70 is the top of my list on my 5.2.4 system. (I need to add an extra Stereo Amp to utilize the 7.2.4 installed but from what I see posted it won't add much in my room.) I know our Denon just simulates the Atmos Speaker feed for this disk, but the small amount of sound just adds a spaciousness to a crisp recording; so much so you close you eyes and your sitting in the 7th row - dead center, at Earl's Court. Of course I may be a bit prejudiced, and yes, I saw him live a couple years back here in Vancouver.
By the way, the first Atmos disk I bought was Roger Waters, The Wall. Boy was I disappointed. A lot of folks raved about it, but I guess I just missed it. Of course I love any David Gilmore disks so far.
Like many I suspect, my best DVD sound was The Eagles - Hell Freezes Over => no question. I've started to buy some titles in Blu-Ray that I have in DVD (Like Roy Orbison's Black & White Night; Supertramp -Live in Paris. Just don't tell my wife!) and this Eagles disk is on the top of my want list if it ever comes out in Blu-Ray.
I'm trying to figure out which concert would be best in Blu-Ray for Springsteen, Heart, and Joe Bonamassa. Any input would be appreciated.
