I have other DVD-Audio titles, they play fine. SACDs also play fine.
The DVD-Audio I have of Tommy, sadly, is an exercise in frustration.
I can hear the player whirr and pause at the beginning of the album, and at many tracks on the album. As a result, I "miss" a half second to a second of the beginning of what seems like most tracks. Most notably the very beginning of "Overture" and the transitions between "Cousin Kevin" to the "The Acid Queen" and "Fiddle About" to "Pinball Wizard" (track 1, tracks 10-11, tracks 12-13). "I'm Free" also begins about a half second into the song. Infuriating!
Some transitions, such as "Amazing Journey" to "Sparks", are seamless and have no problems at all.
If I force the player to play the DVD-Audio as if it's a DVD-Video disc, the transitions are all perfect. Playing the disc as a DVD-Video in a computer (mac mini, late 2009 model) also works fine. This would be great, except I purchased the disc for the higher resolution audio.
Anyone else have this problem?
