John Lennon, Yoko Ono: Double Fantasy       (2 of 7 found this review helpful)
  February 27, 2015

There are a few songs on here which I've always thought; I should almost melt, but it's just not quite there. In this release, the sound is so lovely and warm yet clear that finally it's - there. I just melt into the chair when I listen to 'Woman' for example. Heck. I've melted on the first bar ... more

Masterpiece. Dynamic range - by the bucket load Sound stage - Hypnotic Transients - thought my speakers might pop Subtle detail - hairs on the back of the neck Analogue - I would have believed it wasn't digitised Compression - absolutely not What an absolutely fantastic job they've ... more

I was pleasantly surprised when I first played this. It's all there. It's really clear. It's really in your face. So initially quite impressive. After a while (few tracks) it starts to get very fatiguing. The loudness just keeps going. It really is relentless. If somebody was using a drill and you ... more

While it does have a warm sound .... ... I was underwhelmed The reproduction is probably near perfect, but I personally find there isn't much going on. It just doesn't exite me. Probably it's just me, but there it is. I am looking forward to the SHM-SACDs Universal Japan releases; Mind Games and ... more

Hi Marpow, Is there any chance you could review 'Rush: Moving Pictures'. You posted a 'will review when it arrives' but not a review ... yet. There are 2 reviews only and they are at opposite ends. One hates, one loves. Thanks. ... more
Dynamic Range Control specified on blu ray
February 19, 2015
The Azur 752BD user manual talks about Dynamic Range Control: There are 3 settings on, off, auto: "Auto Play at the dynamic range specified by the disc. This option applies to Blu-ray Discs only. For other disc types no dynamic range compression is applied." I didn't know a blu-ray could specify a dynamic range ! Surely the "Pure Audio" ones ... more

I should correct myself. The Dynamic range control is not ON by default, it's 'auto'. from user manual: "Auto Play at the dynamic range specified by the disc. This option applies to Blu-ray Discs only. For other disc types no dynamic range compression is applied." ... so I guess for SACDs etc it will be OFF - just as I like it. ... more
