A nice selection of classical music.

"With its selection of classical music and a variety of still photos of Austria, Night in Vienna is the perfect background piece for dinner parties. It is also possible to view stills of clouds or forests but I found those of Austria best suited to the music of Mozart, Haydn and Schubert. For example Mozart's Andante from the Piano Concerto No.21 is accompanied by a sweeping panorama of central Vienna which brought back many pleasant memories to me.Of technical interest is that both the DD5.1 and DTS soundtracks have matching volume levels making a direct comparison between the two very easy. It may surprise many that the perceived quality improvement of DTS over DD5.1 is, at least with orchestral music, not as great as is often made out. Also two notes of caution with this DVD:1) There is no PCM audio track so it will not play on a CD player.2) In the 'speaker setup' section, the subwoofer test tone is 17db louder than the test tone for the other channels and will give an incorrect volume setting for the subwooferOverall not a bad DVD and a good accompaniment to similar DVDs such as those in the Naxos Musical Journey series."
