This music-only Blu-ray discs delivers 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio if and when connections are made with 1.3 and/or 1.4 HDMI cables. If connected with optical cables it will only deliver 5.1 or 6.1 standard DTS quality sound. For the purpose of this review I only used high-speed 1.3 cables connecting the Blu-ray player and the 7.2 AV receiver. I should mention that the present receiver is one of Onkyo s new generation of THX-certified products built around high quality Burr-Brown DACs. The DTS-HD MA encoding of this recording as connected with 1.3 HDMI cables produces a variable bit rate (VBR), bit-for-bit (lossless) stream that includes 7.1 channels with sample rates of 96 kHz. Just as well the DTS-HD MA-encoded files also contain a backward-compatible DTS Digital Surround 5.1 (and 6.1) core with a bit rate of 1509 kbps. However, this review concerns itself only with 7.1 DTS-HD MA channels reproduction. The unique acoustic reality experience that his recording affords to my ears as to the musical phrasing and playing of these two very complex scorings, the orchestral presence, instrumental sections separation, high and low dynamics and instrumental solos are far superior to anything I have heard on so-called true surround recordings. We are placed at the same location that the conductor assumes in the podium, we are not part of the audience - we hear what the conductor hears. Orchestral sound is very close and all around, especially the sound coming out of the two side-surround speakers. In my mind the use of these side speakers totally redefines surround sound; this is a new experience and something to behold. --Audiophile Audition Review

First the important bit. It's the sound that matters, and for that alone, I'm very impressed. This is a full 7.1 DTS-HD recording (my AV receiver downmixes to 5.1). The bluray exhibits the traits often mentioned with hi-res sound; more detail yet more natural, a more spacious open sound that's less fatiguing than CD.
I have two CD recordings of the same concertos to compare this with; (Ashkenazy's version of Rach2 and David Helfgott's Rach3). This orchestra's rendition didn't detract from my memories of the music in any way. I often find that the first hearing of a piece of music is the one your brain thinks is "the right one" and all subsequent hearings are measured against it; particularly with the timing. I enjoyed this offering just as much, with the added bonus of hi-res production.
The downside; the packaging. The actual case is DVD size rather than bluray size (annoying if you have them stacked OCD-like together); and the packaging is COMPLETELY bereft of anything at all! The only information is what's printed on the disc itself. No sleeve notes, no information on timings, the formats, the orchestra; nowt. Which is a bit measly when this bluray is marketed as a high-end product.
