Jon - I completely agree and was quite disappointed when I finally got the BD version. Like the Steve Vai BD, if you're not going to go with a Hi Rez audio codec, why bother? DVD would have been good enough. I however, still enjoy the disc purely for the content - video and audio are good enough, but obviously not quite what it coulda' been.I have the Blu-Ray, and aside from it being a great concert and all, it's a bit of a let down on Blu. It really does not "look" HD, crystal clear like some other concert Blu-Rays (for example, Elton 60th Birthday), and the audio is not "HiRez" per se. You would think that they would have at least given up the DTS-HD MA for a program like this.
I would think that the DVD probably would look and sound almost the same as the Blu-Ray if you played them both on a machine like the Oppo. That being said, you can't complain about the material!
