5.0 out of 5 stars Best D/A converter..., May 2 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great D/A converter for cd and tv optical out in PCM mode.
Note that the power goes thru a USB interface cable, so you
may need an usb/ac universal adaptor 5V-1A for $3.00 more.
PS: it do not decode Dolby Digital or DTS format.

3.0 out of 5 stars Soundtrack of the future..., Feb. 15 2016
This review is from: The Astonishing [2CD] (Audio CD)
Well, if you like soundtrack of a movie that will never be...DT tried something new;

2.0 out of 5 stars better option..., Dec 4 2015
sound like a bootleg...get the "glass spider live" by Immortal label instead; ASIN: B0012LCB2G
so much better for sound and quality of the product.

4.0 out of 5 stars The voice only..., Oct. 18 2015
This review is from: Get Up (Audio CD)
Bryan sing on the influencing music of Jeff Lynne, ELO and the Traveling Wilburys!
since Bryan is playing guitar/ vocal and Jeff is playing; guitar, piano, bass, drums and backing vocals.
the results is quite evident with such a collaboration of those two great artists with enjoyable music.
As for the four acoustic versions at the end...well, it's all Bryan style and sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars better than Yessongs...?, June 11 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Well, this is the debate; the remastered of those 1972 U.S.tour tapes
are more detail but lack of bass, and
Yessongs is less detail, but has more bass...on the other hand
the sound take are not the same at all and mixed differently too.

As for the songs in this "highlights from 72" is an overview of
the deluxe box set of 14 cd's that will be sold 100/1 because of the
price issue.

will I stop listening to my Yessongs Lp or cd...NO! but it's a nice
addition to those Yes concerts of that era (don't forget Yesshow too).

Tracklist;1) opening (Firebird suite), siberian khatru, i've seen all
good people, heart of the sunrise, clap/mood for a day, and you and I.

2)close to the edge, the six wifes of Henry VIII, roundabout, yours is
no disgrace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for home replacement too..., May 10 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great product for the price...I was sceptical at first to replace
my 1996 home hi-fi subwoofer speaker ( suspension was cracked and
dried up with time) it fits perfectly and sounds fantastic now!

Break in period is needed to low-medium volume before adding more
power (24-48 hours playing) this is requierd for long term reliability.

since it's desing for sub-woofer application, do not use it to replace
a woofer in a home stereo towers speakers; low frequency is not the same.

3.0 out of 5 stars almost..., Nov. 20 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: No Fixed Address (Audio CD)
a good Nickelback rock album with two very bad songs;
"she keep me up" & "got me runnin'round" pop and rap
don't belong here, maybe looking for new fan's but
probably loosing more real rock fan's overall.
please next time release a live album or fill it with
great classic rock covers instead...guess you learn by
your mistake. don't blow your next album; new producer,
back to basic and rock it!

3.0 out of 5 stars encore and encore..., Oct. 30 2014
Well, another remastered re-edition; bought it in the 70' in Lp,
bought in the mid 80' when cd started, bought the remastered Box set 1
and Box set 2 in early 90'...and still got them all. So!
I'm not buying them again anymore...! it has to stop and same thing with
The Beatles, Pink Floyd, etc...
Jimmy Page and George Marino digitaly remastered them at
sterling sound in New York in may 1990 with the original analogue master
tape to put it on a digital master (can't play to much with old master tapes).
Download iTunes and mp3 are high-infidelity not Hi-Fi sound; keep that in mind!

The new 2014 remastered is base on those digital master anyway.
The extra alternative take/ mix etc...is not so much of interest;
except on Led Zep 1 for the live concert in 1968 never publish before.
They will re-released them one by one, and after that put out a new
Box set again and again...love to have their bank account! Cheers.
