Audio has annoying buzz. Amateur production.

"This DVD is the typical aquarium DVD except on blu-ray. I was not especially impressed. I've owned 4 now...still looking for a good one.
I immediately noticed an annoying buzz and pops on one of the sound tracks.
Though it is hi-def, the depth of field is very shallow so much of the image is out of focus.
It appears to be an amateur production. I'm returning this to Amazon.
It has three aquarium choices...and that is it for the options. No way to turn off the audio.
Why does every aquarium DVD producer think we want to hear this new age music along with the video? And why do they never show the whole aquarium? So you get fish going on and off the screen. I want a virtual high-def aquarium...which means aquarium sounds and a view of the entire aquarium - minus the edges. This music is annoying.
My blu-ray player is a PS3, and with many game titles you have the option of playing your own music while you are also playing the game. That is what I am looking for. A virtual high-def aquarium with aquarium sounds, mixed with my own playlist of songs from the PS3 hard drive.

"I have a Sony 1080p/24p LCD Tv and the quality on this Blu-Ray is awesome! Its not a pan type shot. It is a still camera pov. Lots of colorful fish. I am having a party at my house next weekend and i plan on playing this during the party. The only thing i did not like is the lack of set-up features-none. The main menu has the 3 locations to play and you check the ones you want to play back to back but you DO NOT get a repeat option unless you have one on your BRD player. Otherwise a perfect display of BRD 1080p!"
A no-fuss fish tank you can turn off

"Our living room is tiny and our furniture faces a giant plasma screen TV. It is hard to sit in front of it when it is off and ignore it- it is like a gaping black hole-but when friends are over and it is on, it kills the conversation and steals the attention. The aquarium DVD gives a nice ambient glow and is relaxing to look at, but easy to ignore, much like a real fish tank. There are cute little crabs and lots of other neat aquatic creatures, and the colors are amazing. We watch it on mute because it plays sleepy, ambient music. My niece can't ignore the TV when she is here but when I turn on a show she ignores everything else, and the aquarium DVD entertains and inspires her without being all-encompassing. I"
Good but Not Good Enough

"Don't get me wrong, this is a quality product. I just wish there were more aquarium blu rays available with more and different fish. The aquarium of the Americas in New Orleans has a Fantastic large aquarium with Fantastic large fish that would make, in my opinion, a truly Fantastic Blu Ray disc. The fasination is not only in colorful fish in high def but imagine really big sand tigers, groupers, drums, hammerheads, ect., swimming by in high definition, for hours on end. I for one, would love it. I think many others would too."
