If Rhino would just sell these files on their own website we wouldn't need 10% off.

The new LZ remasters sound excellent.

Well, upon first listen...I agree. This version WAY trumps all other CD issues I have heard. I am so pleased with this. Outstanding!!

I love Houses of The Holy...probably my favorite Zep album...but...well...ugh on the download part...I need to get that one on an early version CD...I have sworn that I wouldn't buy any more Zep music until Jimmy Page was not involved in the production...last purchases were the 1990 double CD "remasters" and then the ill fated Celebration concert blu ray...both flops...

Update:...I got that 1990 double CD set back out(title is remasters) and listened to disc 2 and it's not as bad as I remembered...so thank you Gos for mentioning Zep

I know...I had the same thoughts...but I was impressed with the initial purchase...I bought the other 2....got too late and I didn't get to listen to them. But maybe will tonight...

Amin Bhatia - The Interstellar Suite 25th Anniversary Edition - 5.1 FLAC. My first FLAC download purchase, which I promptly made into a DVD-A disc!

Its quite immersive, excellent sound quality, musically sort of classical/film score Tomita style.

But just the 5.1 alone was £18 (about $28), if you want the stereo its another £17 (about $25), they have to be bought separately. So if they had made a BD-A which has never materialised it would have been way over $50!

Maybe it would be helpful if you tell us where you got it from....I will do the same in the future. :)

My wife just made my day. I was playing a download FLAC of Simon Garfunkel Hits....and she said "whoa, I've never heard that saxaphone before". She had NO clue what I was playing and on what format.....so......there is a testament to the quality of some of these hi-rez downloads and their improvements. She only knew that the version she had heard all these years had muffled that instrument and now it was much more clear....

This is so cool.

That's a good question...24 hours later and I don't recall. And....it wasn't a sax....more like a damn oboe or something.....I'll have to play it again. Me and the wife are not sure.....what the instrument was...either way...she'd never heard it so pronounced before.
