I give one my changers a random spin then listen and try to figure out what DVD I am playing, while surfing the net.

re: Fragile > You'll dig it... HIGHLY recommended DVD-A. Sound quality is vastly superior to any previous release and, at last, the album has finally achieved the sonic glory that has always been hidden in that muddy mix.

Close To The Edge is on the way in the near future...

Edit - Oh yeah, you still need to get the Zappa Halloween DVD-A as well...

"Hedwig and the Angry Inch" has a feature where you can watch and listen to the songs only. Turn off the TV, turn on the DTS 5.1 and man.... that's good sound mixin'!

This is the right answer.

(include Barenaked Ladies: Barelaked Nadies and An Evening With the Dixie Chicks, and you have perfection)

There are DVD I can watch and enjoy and there are discs I hate, but I like to hear the dialog or the musical score to possibly buy the soundtack my current numer is 562 form 1933 to present.



P.S. Haven't you wondered why I never ask about sound, oh I brag about the sound I have created of of 2 OOP. I am a audiophile, like the surfer searching for the best wave I search for music I can grow to love listening to.


You have seen the woman with her eyes closed, something is said you never knew you could be in love with what your listening to. I don't have blonde hair or eyeliner, but I do have one thing in common with her, my eyes are closed unless I am on the internet!


A special thank you Mike for adding to my post instead of moving it to the Far end of the universe via a tachion signal. I don't have any Transparent Aluminum formulas to trade with I'm just your average galaxy hitchiker with a near frozen thumb.
