Format: Blu-ray Audio Verified Purchase
I bought the Imagine album in its blu-ray audio version, hoping it would show a valuable difference in the sound. I compared the blu-ray audio and the CD from the 2010 Lennon box set. I couldn’t hear much improvement if any. But the sound is really good from both in all the audio spectre. Then I listened to my original 1971 Imagine LP. The sound coming from the vinyl was clearer and more spaced out (still you must have a damn good turntable and cartridge) than its digital versions which seemed a little bit veiled. Although you get some surface noise with the LP, it’s obvious that Lennon’s voice is more there, in front of you. On the other hand on my sound system the blu-ray and CD have a bit more tight bass and can be played louder. If you don’t possess the LP, then you can purchase the blu-ray that is very good in itself, but be sure your player can play it. If you don’t own the LP, then buying the blu-ray copy may be a good purchase (providing your blu-ray player can read such product).

J’ai acheté le blu-ray audio Imagine dans le but d’obtenir le meilleur playback disponible de cet enregistrement mémorable. Les premières écoutes m’ont pleinement satisfait jusqu’à ce que j’entreprenne quelques comparaisons avec le disque vinyle original de 1971 que je conserve toujours précieusement dans ma discothèque. Eh bien, c’est comme si on avait levé un voile entre le point d’écoute et les enceintes acoustiques! La voix de John était présente, libre et claire; la musique plus aérée. Mais votre chaîne audio doit être munie d’une très bonne platine tourne-disque et d’une excellente cellule pour obtenir de tels résultats. Seul un léger bruit de surface vient gâcher un peu le plaisir.

This was one was really well done; the engineers didn't jack the gain and in fact, the sound is pretty much the same as the Japanese vinyl.

This is one of Lennon's two best record (I, like some others prefer the Plastic Ono Band). It is solid pretty well straight thru. With guests like George Harrison, Alan White and Klous Vormen (think that is spelt wrong) you really can't go wrong. This Blu Ray audio is miles better then any released to date.
The Blu ray audio is a Perefect format. It gives us an uncompressed versions of the records. That is a straight master tape. Up until now CD, Vinyl, SACD and DVD-A all had to be compressed. So up until now we had to make due. Now we get to hear it exactly the way the Artist did.
This series will be great once they start doing some fringe Blu ray audio releases. However there are a lots of classics available.

Not A Big Deal To These Ears!!! July 18 2014
By DKPete - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Audio Verified Purchase
I have multiple copies of this album both on CD and Vinyl and, honestly, this is a disappointment where highly touted Blu ray sound quality is concerned.

To begin with, it's totally beyond me as to why the version utilized for this release is that of the muffled, often time muddy original mix. I would think that Peter Cobbin's remixed version (outstandingly done, by the way) would have much better served the intended purpose.

That said, I did an A/B comparison between this disc and the 2010, original mix release which was a part of the Signature Box; I literally went back and forth from CD player to Blu ray player as the same song would be playing. I CAN say-for the sake of saying it-that there is at least a minimal difference between the two but, alas, I'd be lying to myself and everyone here; I have a small number of other re-issue discs both in the Blu ray and CD format on which I can honestly say there's a difference between the two. No such thing happening here.

To add, I'm disappointed in the packaging of this release. The fold out booklet which comes with it is virtually, word for word, the same as the booklet which accompanies the 2010 (Signature Box) version.

For what it's worth, I was playing the vinyl copy which was a part of the 40th anniversary box that was put out for Record Store Day in 2011. As the original mix of the album goes, that actually sounds far superior to this release.

As a final note I'd like to make clear that these comments (hence my two star rating) are based on what I was expecting per Blu ray audio hoopla; they have nothing to do with the musical content of the album which is among my top five solo Beatle albums of all time; but for what this is supposed to be in terms of sound quality, I'm very let down.

Umm not a movie Jan. 11 2014
By Korey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Audio
Just a heads up to anyone this is a Blu-ray audio copy of the classic 1970 album not the documentary of the same name. There is no video content on this Blu-ray audio album

Another buzzy Universal BluRay Pure Audio disc Oct. 19 2014
By Mick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Audio Verified Purchase
As is the case with all three of the Universal BluRay Pure Audio discs I've purchased to date, this disc buzzes/vibrates very loudly in my Sony BDP-BX38 player. No video BD's or BD audios by other manufacturers do this - only the Universal BluRay Pure Audio discs. I have no idea why, but it seriously undermines the audio enjoyment if I'm in the same room as the player while playing one of these discs.
Then there's the fact that it's just the 40 min. album here: no 5.1 mix...no bonus tracks. Quite a waste of a BD's capacity, and a bit of a ripoff for what it cost.
Though, it *IS* John Lennon's amazing "Imagine" album, and it does sound amazing here - so it still gets 4 stars.

It was recently announced that seven JL albums (including "Imagine") will be released on the SHM-SACD format in Japan in December 2014. For those of us with SACD playback capability, I'm thinking these will be the better bet.

It is better than the remastered version that came out several years ... Aug. 6 2014
By Steve Lukas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Audio Verified Purchase
I was not totally impressed with the audio quality of this disc. It is better than the remastered version that came out several years ago but it is not the best ever made of this beautiful album. If you love the Imagine album as I do, buy the MFSL version of it. That is the best sounding best made version to date. You will not be disappointed.
