A Little Clarification
A. Craig | Grand Junction,CO | 08/23/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a 2 disc set from 2L Called "Divertimenti". The first disc is an
SACD Hybrid that features 69:00 mins. of works by Britten, Bacewicz, Bjorklund, and Bartok. All works for String Orchestra. The recordings are
done in DXD or Digital Extreme Definition.The SACD disc is the usual Three layers DSD Stereo, DSD Surround and regular CD Stereo. On the second disc which is a Blu-Ray Disc, the same works are featured available in Linear PCM 24bit/192khz,both Stereo and 5.1Surround, dts-hd MA 5.1 Surround,24bit/192 and Dolby TrueHD24bit/192, 5.1 Surround, and Dolby Digital 48khz,5.1 Surround and The perfomers are the Trondheim Soloists. The only Video on the second disc is the menu guide, this disc is being refered to as the first
release of a purely music only Blu-Ray disc. I suspect that the performances are all first rate, as all these works are a real showcase for any string orchestra."
First BD-Audio

"Tonal quality is first rate, especially through my Panasonic BD-50 blu ray player.
By comparison even better than the SACD disc through my Linn Unidisk player.
However, the surround mix (while very involving) places you in the middle of the orchestra, which I do not like.
From the booklet it seems this was deliberate- I wonder why then 2L don't use this mixing in their other SACD's?
Their normal 5.1 SACD's are also of prime quality (think BIS, Linn and HM quality) and make you feel in the second row which I prefer..."
Stunning Dynamic range sound through my Paradigms

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This recording is like no other, however, you have to be able to reproduce the sound to appreciate it. I can hear a definite difference with this compared to other CD's over my PS3, Pioneer elite receiver and Paradigm Speakers. Love it.
Cons: Music selection
Pros: Sound and recording quality"
Highest sound quality, exc classical performances

"You get both a Blu-ray and an SACD disc of the same material! An audiophile may find this useful for comparison, or you can give one away, they're both equally amazing. Superb recordings of exc performances."
