I'd read a review of the SACD (on sa-cd.net) where someone said it was a poor surround mix with very little going on in the centre and rears (which doesn't sound like this DVD at all!) so consequently I don't think it's one many people are falling over themselves to own!I must admit I didn't know there was an SACD version until I read your post above, Fred. I bet that goes for a tidy penny!
I'll report back tomorrow, NeilLove to know what you think of it, Fred; if it's worth seeking out. There's no centre channel on the DVD and the action in the rears is pretty subtle, but I don't mind because as live performances go it's pretty stunning, imho. Helps that he's one of my favorite artists.
My copy of Ça Ira arrived yesterday and I gave it a very quick spin to make sure the discs were okay. What I heard in that short space of time sounded *very* impressive from a surround perspective. Looking forward to giving it a full listen through.Have you got the other Roger Waters SACD set, Neil?
2 SACDs and a DVD, really nice package for PF fans
ignore those £90 merchants! you shouldn't have to pay more than about £20-£30 for it nowadays.Having seen Roger Waters at the O2 doing the Wall, In The Flesh is an album I wish I'd bought, but I'm not going to pay £90+ for the sacd. Has anyone seen it cheaper?
I'm going to post a load more reviews over at sa-cd.net soon, as I firmly believe a lot of titles (like Ca Ira) there get overlooked by poor reviews of things which put people off some really great things! the worst is people there bashing a disc when they've only played the stereo! ...and we know how many SACDs are only remastered/mixed from the multi's for the surround layer and the stereo is just the latest (usually crappy) CD remaster!My copy of Ça Ira arrived yesterday and I gave it a very quick spin to make sure the discs were okay.
