Wow.


Anamorphic widescreen. From a high definition master. The best looking music DVD I have ever seen. Check out your system with this disc. Start on Track 13, Disc One.

How's the sound?


Seems most soundtracks disappoint.

Agreed Wow. I went to 12 shows on this tour and this is pretty close to being there again. I can now forever re-live my youth. Sound is great. If you are a Rock-N-Roll fan and never saw Springsteen you should buy this DVD. I watched it when it was on HBO in HD. It seems just as good of a picture as then. I am sure if I had it side by side I could tell, but it seems close.

I agree Kurt. I always think it sounds odd to say that a DVD is as good as HDTV, but this one comes close.


Video based HDTV. Are there any other of these animals out there on DVD?

When I saw the HBO Special I was disappointed by the lack of crowd noise.


I was at all three shows that were taped, and I can assure you that crowd was plenty loud, particularly when they were singing along. I could almost not hear the crowd at all on the HBO Special.


Does the DVD have a better/proper mix of the crowd in the surrounds??


Thanks!

Are you sure it is enhanced 1.78? DVD Empire says it is presented in 1.33. Please say it is enhanced. :cool: Has anyone listened and compared the PCM to the 5.1 DD soundtrack?

It was filmed with HD cameras so I assume it is 1.78. I have the box right here and all it says is Digitaly Mastered, 5.1 dolby Digital. AS far as the sound goes, I notice some drop off during certain songs, like Out in the Streets. I remember this happened during the HBO broadcast and I just assumed it was my satelite signal, but I guess in mixing it this happened. The crowd noise is fine to me. It is never as loud as when ou are in the audience, but I am sure Bruce wants you to here the music. Crank it up and enjoy the show. Invite about 30 of your friends that like the Boss for a screening. Put 7:30 on the invitation and start the DVD at about 8:10 to 8:15. Springsteen fans will know what I mean.

William:


This is most certainly enhanced for widescreen. I leave my 400Q on its anamorphic setting and I did not have to make a change when playing this.


Crowd Noise.


I played with the DSP settings on my Yamaha DSP -A1. You can certainly create a lot of crowd surround on several of the settings. I still prefer the unadulterated version straight from the DVD.

I wish they would make a couple of DVDs of my favorite bands AC-DC "Down at Downington"(Lehigh College Autorium, Bethlehem, PA) or Def Leppards "Pyromania"(June 27,1983) I have the videos of the both bands I heard loud and 'live'!
