Reeled in today | PotO rocks! Seriously!

Seriously, the 25th Anniversary presentation of the Phantom of the Opera on blu-ray is incredible!  I spent the better part of this weekend enjoying this performance.  I will be writing a review of this later in the week.  But on the outside chance you are here curious to find out what my thoughts are, well – get it!  Really incredible!

Rats…

My audio system is about 90-95% to where I want it to be. I really only have a few more minor planned tweaks that I am finalizing. And I have to say I couldn’t be happier with it.

But I am flummoxed by the state of audio media today. I’ve recently acquired some Blu-Ray concerts that seem to fall right in line with the issues discussed in yesterday’s post on Dynamic Range. Sadly, the mix is ridiculously tilted high and loud. It’s such a shame! And I have to share that part of the problem is that my system is now at a point where this stuff is (and becomes) patently obvious!

So as much as I enjoyed Sting’s concert in Berlin, I think the mix is lacking and way too “loud” and “high”. However, Dave Mathews and Tim Reynolds disk is spectacular!

Just a simple rant for today! I guess I’ll just spin some vinyl!

PS Happy St. Patrick’s day!
