Comment : Live recordings are always more difficult to convert into a convincing surround. This one is no exception and I wonder why they didn't remaster it more to even channels. There is in some songs quite a difference between left and right channel in volume and it's even pronounced more in the surround version. Despite that there are quite some nice surround effects, a good sound and soundfield. TRACKS CD 1 01 - Highway Star 02 - Child in Time 03 - Smoke on the Water 04 - The Mule 05 - Strange Kind of Woman 06 - Lazy 07 - Space Truckin' CD 2 01 - Black Night 02 - Speed King 03 - Lucille EXTRA INFO : For those who don't have the ability to play DVDA, here are the same songs on 2 DTS CD's. DTS CD's are only playable on installation that support the DTS format. When you play them on a stereo setup, you will only hear white noise, which can damage your ears and speakers ! On the PC they are playable with all regular players (Foobar, VLC, Media Player Classic), but of course your PC needs to be connected to 6 speakers ;-) A lot of listeners to 5.1 surround are sceptical about upmixes from stereo. In their opinion only studio made 5.1 is good. I hope they will think again after listening to my upmixes. Of course I cannot make discrete channels like they can in a studio where they record every instrument on separate tracks, but the sound is excellent, there is a lot of separation in the 6 different channels and the soundfield is immersive. And FWIW 90% of the retail surround titles are upmixes, mostly with only some reverb in the rears. Enjoy this EoH Production !
