That is a pretty sad review. I have not been really interested in buying any Audio-DVDs anyway but if I had, this would have been my first purchase (unless they released their album Jazz).

I recieved the new Queen A Night At The Opera DTS/DVDA the other day from CDNow (it had been a pre-order).

Wait till you hear the new 94/64 DTS tracks of this recording.
Absolutely powerful bass (I use a Velodyne and a SVS sub) and insane Surround information comes out of these tracks!
My room was rocking to Queen like it never did before. It blows away the cd versions you may have.

Strangely the DVDA tracks didn't immediatley impress like the DTS tracks did. Though I have Bass Management (ICBM), the DVDA tracks lack that impressive bass and surround info like the DTS tracks.
It may be the compression that was used and the DVDA tracks may just have to be played louder.

All in all this is a MUST buy for Rock fans. The good news is that anyone who has DTS in their HT will be able to enjoy this disc. The DTS tracks are that good!

I'll be interested in how others feel about the DVDA tracks.

It should be in stores on April 30.
