    Default Neil Young on Blu-Ray

    I read about this last night in the new Sound and Vision, which was in yesterday's mail.

    He is putting all his work on Blu-Ray (DVD and CD versions available), and S&V raved about how good it is. The first release is 10 Blu-Ray DVDs and covers up to 1972.

    If you are a fan then this probably is a must have.

    Sound and Vision did not mention SACD. In so far as surround sound, at least in Archives 1, there is only a little, and it is used for things like wind in the trees, etc., not music.

    Off subject, but I have seen in the past others mention one of the reasons why Sony "abandoned" SACD is because Blu-Ray is suppossed to be even better for digital music. Whether that is true, either about Sony or Blu-Ray, I do not know, but it sounds reasonable.

    Neil was a big DVD-A supporter, nothing on SACD that I know of yet
    Dodd - Battery Preamp
    Monarchy Audio SE100 Delux - mono power amps
    Sony DVP-NS999ES - SACD player
    ADS 1230 - Polk SDA 2B
    DIY Stereo Subwoofer towers w/(4) 12 drivers each
    Crown K1 - Subwoofer amp
    Outlaw ICBM - crossover
    Beringher BFD - sub eq

    Where is the remote? Where is the $%#$% remote!
