    Recommendations for DVD-A Titles

    I recently purchased the Denon DVD-1600 and am waiting for my Rotel RSP-1098/RMB-1095 controller/amplifier combo to arrive. In the meantime, I wanted to get some suggestions for DVD-A discs that are sonically impressive. I don't care for any sampler demo discs. So, if you guys could recommend one or two titles in each of the three categories, namely, Classical, Rock, Jazz, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks,
    Viji

    If you like Steely Dan, they've got two excellent DVD-Audio disks: Everything Must Go and Two Against Nature. In addition, Donald Fagen's Nightfly is also awesome. I highly recommend all.

        Tipper(Artist)-Surrounded(the disc). In my humble opinion there IS NO better DVD-A out there right now. The music is a little strange, and takes a little getting used to if you are strictly a mainstream fan of any genre. But if you have an open mind, and you like New Age, or New Age/Jazz'ish stuff (say Blue Man Group) you might end up really enjoying the music. I've heard it classified as "Down Tempo and Ambient," I would agree. It's serious chill out music.

        BUT... if you want what I consider (and many, many reviewers out there) to be the best DVD-A disc to date, this is it. The mix is just outstanding...

        Here is a link to Amazon, where you can check out a few of the tracks

        It comes in regular 2 channel CD as well. And it sounds great as well.

        But if you want to hear what your 5.1 DVD-A system can do, THIS is the disc. I know I may sound a little overboard. But IMHO, it's that damn good.

        The easiest way to find something lost around the house, is to buy a replacement.

        As long as people will accept crap, it will be financially profitable to dispense it.

          I don't have many, but Hotel California is a very good disc. I'm going to have to give Tipper a spin. . . :B

            I will definately agree with Hotel California great disc. A few more I would recommend are Metallica-Black Album,Neil Young-Harvest, and BB King&Eric Clapton-Riding With The King

              I'm still curious--how does "Hotel California" on DVD-A compare to the original Hotel California on DVD that has been a demo reference disc for so long in the a/v industry?

                I'm surprised no one mentioned Fleetwood Mac 'Rumours'. An amazing album to begin with, and it has never sounded as good as it does on DVD-A.

                  Another "golden oldie" that sounds terrific on DVD-A is "Brain Salad Surgery" by Emerson, Lake and Palmer.

                    I started another thread in "In-Tune" that you guys might be interested in. (Nobody's posting to it though... :cry: :boohoo: )

                      I agree... this is better suited for the "in-tune" section. I'll add SACD to the discussion over there.
