There is a blu ray version done at 96/24 that is just as good as any sacd/dvd audio. A BD that's 96 is a rarity. They are usually 48hz.I have to admit I have usually put the DVD in so I could see this great concert. For some reason I had forgotten that it comes with a multichannel SACD. I put it in to my Oppo tonight and all I can say is: Wow! Amazingly clean, discreet, and well balanced disc. That Elliot Scheiner and Bob Ludwig both work their magic on this one. Too bad like most OOP HiRez its going for megabucks.
Same here - I had my copy for quite a while before I watched it...Clint had told me it was killer...and he was right. It's simply excellent!This is a title that I bought a few years back with a bunch of others when I got my first BluRay player. Although I had unwrapped it, I got distracted, put it in the rack and forgot about it as I was never really a Roy Orbison fan. (I have his Greatest Hits and Travelling Wilburys.) So I was going through the stack last night and said to myself, "Oh yea, I should probably check out this one." I must have been totally insane for not doing so sooner. This performance is so good as to border on absurd. Everything that I had heard before by Roy Orbison were studio recordings and I had no idea that he had such a powerful live voice as demonstrated in this BluRay. I mean, the guy can belt it out with barely moving his mouth; and then when he does open up it's incredible.
Oh, and the discreet Elliot Scheiner mix as noted above was another shocker for me. Performance - 10, Content - 10, Sound -10, Mix - 10, Video Quality is so, so, but it doesn't matter.
You might want to get this one if you haven't done so already.
I read this on a review of the 30th: "The original Blu-ray's ham-handed mix, which placed the background singers bright, hard and too loud in the surround speakers, has been replaced with a far more subtle and sophisticated mix" I was able to pick up the original with the Sacd for 10 bucks recently.
