3.0 out of 5 stars DVD audio 28 Aug 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD Audio
I am not sure why this guy keeps going on about DTS as that is a lower quality system than the one that is used on the disc, which is the DVD Audio MLP decoding. Prehaps he doesnt have a true DVD Audio system and plays this disc back through a conventional DVD player that cannot produce the higher resolution. To actually play back the DVD audio track, one needs an amp and player than allows this decoding

5.0 out of 5 stars Crips this is good. 2 Sep 2008
By Fletch-a-sketch TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD Audio|Verified Purchase
I had avoided this album because so many people had written it off at the time and subsequently, what are they on?

I picked the DVDA up recently and by cricky if this is not the best acoustic album I have heard from Neil Young. The DVDA may be only stereo but it positively hums with atmosphere, the full benefits of the extra bit depth of DVDA are amply demonstrates. The album contains some of in my opinion Neil Young's best acoustic songs. 'Little Wing' and 'The Old Homestead' from the aborted 1975 'Homegrown' project sound just as good as the newer songs such as 'Hawks and Doves'

3.0 out of 5 stars No Dts 13 July 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD Audio|Verified Purchase
Was delighted when this album first came out on CD -one of the what was it 5 albums ? that until then had never been issued on CD.
Neil Young is such a diverse artist- it was a delight to get that CD & listen at last to another side of Neil Young.
Neil still his own unique self. He gets bit redneck on the latter part of the album -Go from thoughful moody stuff to fun stuff.
Having already DVD AUDIO discs of HARVEST & GREENDALE in my collection & being delighted that both of these had Dts sound, I expected to find Dts on the newly issued DVD AUDIO discs of HAWKS & DOVES; ON THE BEACH & AMERICAN STARS & BARS.
Wrong !!!
No doubt the other Neil Young DVD AUDIO discs are the same.
I can't say how nuch I like Dts -It really brings the sound in -throws you amongst it (Knocks the spots of Dolby Digital 5:1 -that sounds flat in comparison)
Anyway be warned if you've got the HAWKS & DOVES on CD,& want to "upgrade" to the DVD AUDIO version-well if it's Dts you seek-you ain't getting it !
OK -you get some photos,discography etc etc-but one can get this most anywhere.
If you,like me, love Dts + loved the fact that HARVEST & GREENDALE DVD AUDIOS have this- Well just be aware it's not on this new batch of releases !
Why oh why ?
A real skimp on quality.
Such a pity - Disc could of been so much more.
Don't get me wrong I love Neil Young's music ! -Never tire of it :)
It's the lack of Dts that's the big big disapointment.
Had been waiting with glee for these discs, to find the sound well at least with HAWKS & DOVES is not much different to the CDs.
For a example of a great Dts disc -Cop a ear to the DVD of :

"Neil Young - Friends And Relatives Live From Red Rock Amphitheatre "
through a Dts player-Brilliant !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great audio quality 2 Feb 2011
By db - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD Audio|Verified Purchase
I recently upgraded my stereo equipment, so I figured I'd snap up some of Neil's DVD-A's. I received American Stars 'N Bars along with Hawks & Doves yesterday in the mail. Both were mastered the same way. I have a Toshiba DVD player that can play DVD-Audio, but maxes out at 96kHz (only two choices can be made on the Toshiba's audio setup screen: 48kHz or 96kHz) . I run a digital coax from the DVD player into my new Denon 2809CI receiver and it shows that these discs are being decoded at 88.2kHz on my system... which is half of the possible 176kHz, but double the 44.1kHz of a regular CD. Anyhow, when I compare Stars 'N Bars to Hawks & Doves, it's Hawks & Doves that really shines. Stars 'N Bars wasn't all that impressive sonically. I suppose when I upgrade to a BluRay player, I'll see if the 176kHz makes any difference... but I somehow doubt it on this particular release, as it seems the limitations I'm hearing are in the master tapes, since Hawks & Doves sounds so much better.

Neil's more recent audio DVD releases (apparently not exactly DVD-audio, but DVD video containing the "hi-res" audio, or DVD9), were mastered at 96kHz/24 bit (Prairie Wind, Chrome Dreams II, Massey Hall, Sugar Mountain, and Live at the Fillmore East) . So I can only guess that the 176kHz/24 DVD-Audio is more than is really needed or Neil would keep pumpin' those out... or the DVD-A format never caught on and Neil gave up on it.

Update: I did purchase a blu-ray player (PlayStation 3). Unfortunately, it does not play DVD-A discs at high quality, only at CD quality. Sony is always updating the PS3 (via periodic downloads if connected to the internet), so it's possible DVD-A could at some point become supported but from what I've read, it's very doubtful. Of course, the PS3 handles Neil's Archives Vol. I & Le Noise blu-ray versions in all of their high quality glory (192kHz/24). It's the best quality I've ever heard. Some STILL say vinyl is king but I challenge those folks to check out blu-ray audio on a great system and compare for themselves.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not 5.1 surround sound 12 Jan 2009
By Interested - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD Audio|Verified Purchase
Don't think this is a surround sound DVD Audio, cause it aint! Much like the DVD-Audio versions of Neil's "On the Beach" and probably, "Stars N' Bars" this is stereo, not 5.1 channels. It still sounds great.
