The Nordic Sound - 2L audiophile reference recordings
Hai-uy Dang | Fountain Valley, ca United States | 05/29/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In order to provide the right context to my review of this outstanding Music-only Blu ray disc I think its important that people have the right equipment that can actually output the full audio qualities that the producers of this album intented in order to experience the magic of this recording. My review is for the Blu-ray disc and not the SACD disc also include. First, you will need a capable blu ray player and receiver that can decode 192khz/24-bit DAC's for all channels, this is important as this Blu ray has both 5.1 DTS HD MA 24/192kHz 5.1 LPCM 24/192kHz soundtracks, I actually prefer the 5.1 LPCM to DTS HD MA as the bit rate was constant at 27 mbits almost for LPCM, almost twice the rate for the DTS audio and you could tell it provided a more enveloping sound field IMO. This recording also gave you a good selection of different recordings, some originally recorded with Original source: DXD (352.8kHz/24bit) before mixing to 24/192kHz taking full advantage of the maximum audio capabilities currently available today. For comparison, regular CD's are recorded at 44.1 kHz/16-bit rates with only 2 channels. Overall, the recent recordings from 2L released on this music only Blu ray format is really exciting and rewarding for those that care about sound quality and this type of music. It really gives you that true in concert feeling without being there.

My equipment:
Blu ray player:PS3 outputting LPCM
Receiver: Integra DTR 7.8 with 192/24 Burr Brown DAC's for all channels
AMP: B&K reference 200.2 watt 2 channel amp for front L/R speakers
Speakers: Martin Logan Source Front L/R, B&W CC6 center, Martin Logan Ticket Rears, Martin Logan Dynamo Sub

One Disc to Test Them All

"Excellent Blu-Ray for testing high end HD audio. Has recordings at a rarely found 192KHz/24 bits in both DTS-HD MA and LPCM."

"I picked up this title after discovering 2L's hi-res music through their 'Divertimenti' release (also Blu-ray, also worth checking out). Wow- what a fantastic sampler IMO... plenty of nice hi-res 192/24 Blu-ray selections- and again with a companion SACD for A-B comparison if your system supports that. Good bang for the buck, great hi-res sound, dynamics, variety of pieces, etc. Have also done some quick A-B comparisons between the pieces on Blu-ray vs. the same pieces on SACD (I have a fairly hi-q 2ch/multi-ch SACD deck to do that)... have to say the titles on SACD show just a bit more brilliance up high (possibly due to SACD's transient response), but I did find the Blu-ray samples to be more warm- maybe more fuller in the midrange dept, with a more natural and balanced (you're there) type of feel. Which one did I like better? That's really up to the individual... I'm just pointing out some of the subtle (but noticeable) diffs I experience between these two strong formats. As one of the earlier reviews stated: your mileage may vary depending on the quality of your playback equipment... with the gear I currently have, I'm loving hi-res music based on the Blu-ray medium and it's definitely worth checking out. (thank you, 2L!)
