Product Description

Blu-ray Pure Audio Discs: No Compression, No Compromise. Blu-ray Pure Audio Discs Offer True High-Resolution 24-bit/96kHz Audiophile Sound. Universal Music Group has gone back to the original master tapes to deliver fully uncompressed, high-resolution versions of many of your favorite albums on Blu-ray Pure Audio Disc. Mastered at 24bit/96kHz, Blu-ray Pure Audio Discs deliver the sound the artists originally heard in the studio when these classic albums were recorded. These discs provide all the recorded musical information. While convenient due to their small file size, today's heavily compressed music files do not represent the true fidelity of the original album. Recordings are transferred from the original master tapes and delivered in high-resolution 24-bit/96kHz audio. No compression is utilized, and the sound quality is vastly superior to MP3 or standard CD. Three separate choices of audio file format for playback: PCM 2.0, Dolby True HD, or DTS-HD Master Audio (5.1 available where noted). Your preferred audio format is chosen either by pressing the "Audio" button on your Blu-ray remote or via your onscreen menu display.

First off this is not a DVD Audio as Amazon.ca has listed. It's a pure audio Blu Ray. This is a music only (yes that means NO VIDEO). Blu ray. I have owned this album on Vinyl, Cassett, CD (a couple of remastered versions) and this sounds better then any of them. There are two things really going for this format. First off all the record labels are backing it. The other point is you don't need any special equipment it plays on any Blu Ray player.
I can not get over the sound. It has the warmth of vinyl but the separation of a digital format. With a retail price of around $19.99 you won't be forced to buy expensive imports. If the industry markets this right and supports the line with a product that is not always out of stock it should do very well amongst us Audiophiles.
In most cases these are flat transfers from the original stereo master.no compression but the way it was ment to be heard.
If you love great sounding music grab these discs and any Supertramp is a good place to start!

The 5 stars rating is for the quality of the Blu-Ray audio. This is not the best Supertramp album, in my opinion, but I wanted to listen to a Blu-Ray audio and this one was available.

The sound is incredible with the right equipment.

Don't get me wrong. The sound quality and fidelity is far superior to any CD version of the album. But these days with Blu-Ray remixes being done for most CD's in Multi-Channel surroud, this was a bit of a let down. In fact Most blu-Ray releases in my experience have multiple versions of the album. High Resolution Stereo, High Resolution Multi-Channel, Original Vinyl release mix and quite often a new remixed version of the album.

This one offers only the single high resolution stereo track.

I think actually the biggest problem is Amazon's (and other companies) poor description of these releases with little or no details and in fact incorrect details. (I had to send in the correction on this one as it was initially listed as a DVD-Audio disc).

Amazon you need to provide more details and better accuracy when listing non CD formats such as DVD-Audio, Blu-Ray specifications etc...

Sonically it is great. Blur rays seem to really stack up against SACD's IMHO. The album itself is what it is: some fun songs, a couple goodies and some that are forgettable. If you really like the band you should get it.
