Jeez, the bass drops in Autobahn's Kometenmelodie are insaneo_O gets all sorts of things rattling in my room, I'need to get round to tracking them down and shutting them up:oops: I'm loving listening to this one in 7.1.4 Atmos:p
It is completely mind blowing Sven how utterly brilliant this Atmos release is. If only all our shakers and mixers could achieve this level of total surround bliss.

It sure is, I think Kraftwerk are at a bit of an unfair advantage being that they are all electronic, I could be wrong, the sounds are all going straight from the keyboards etc to the recorder by wire with no mikes so the sounds are pure & uncoloured.

My thought exactly after the first listen. This release is amazing, definitely a demo disc for friends.

I feel that the sound is too sterile for a live recording. It lacks energy. Ends up with a stripped down studio sound. I would have preferred an Atmos mix of the actual studio albums with overdubs and other trickery.
It's great that we got an Atmos release though. They are scarce. I gave it a 7.
I am revisiting my initial review on this title. I have the 2 disc version of 3D and I am reviewing the Blu-ray Atmos.
I have made significant upgrades to my system in the last year:
Identical drivers in the main 5 channels.
Separate amplifiers for each channel including one for the 4 Atmos. This allowed me to significantly increase volume of the Atmos speakers.
A subwoofer in each corner (5.4.4)
I also received recommendations from forum members on the frequencies reproduced by the Atmos speakers (thank you)
I experimented and discovered that my previous high crossover point was reducing some percussive effects from the Atmos speakers.
The additional subwoofers in the rear of the room really make a difference. They seem to accentuate sound coming from the rear Atmos speakers.
The final change I made was to pick a day when no one was around so I could "pump up the volume"
This made a huge difference as well. I think you really need the onslaught of sound pressure to make this release work.
Final thoughts...changing vote from 7 to a 9.

They showed up in Gothenburg last august (at an amusement park venue no less) with its full 3d show. First time I saw them and it was an amazing gig, I have never been much into modern electronic music but the german kraut acts from the 70s in general and Kraftwerk in particular always offer an enjoyable listen.

Anyway, I was on my way of ordering the regular blu ray but ended up at a fair good prize with the big one. This release is really something, despite the lack of new material I must say that they squeeze out of the best of what they have, some slight modern touches here and there, the 3d experience is great (I was never a fan of 3d tv in general but here it’s very effective) and last but not least the surround mix is an exercise in how it’s done, simply put. All in all this is a 10.
