Since is a Hybrid disc I decided to record it Windows Media Player 9 which iI use to play hdcd's since it decodes this algorythm.

Recording at variabnle bitrate in wmp's lossless format, my playback is showing between 934 to 1044kbs and from a 2ch analog connection from the soundcard to my Denon 5800/03 and playing in the DPL II dps format, the rez is quite amazing. I think the fact that like the Roger Waters Berlin Wall live disc, it's easy not to be overly critical of the playback.

Same goes for "The Concert for New York" even though there is no hybrid layer.

I've been a fan of Heart since the debut album.

Overall I enjoyed this disc, it creates a live feel in surround. Their set list includes two Led Zepplin covers, and frankly aren't that great, but not my favourite track of theirs, "If Looks Could Kill"

Other than that recommended and good value for a double disc.

I've been a huge Heart fan forever so I was very pleased to find this discs. There has been some commends about the overall sound but I do not recognise that.

I have seen Heart in Rotterdam a few years ago so I have a good idea what livesound to expect. I think that the livesound was captured mostly as it was and that's what I like in a live disc.

There is no question that the SACD sounds better than the red book CD, less harsh with more transparant high-end and an overall warmer sound without adding mud or losing clarity.

Stereo imaging is good for a live rock recording. At the moment I have no multichannel set-up so I cannot comment on the MC layer.

Something I found a bit odd was that a lot of tracks were actually covers, all done well but I cannot help feeiling that there could have been more of those original Heart songs on the album.
