Great show, sound and video could be better,
This review is from: Stevie Wonder: Live At Last [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
The show itself is great. Playlist covers all of Stevie's hits in a very rich production. The band and the background singers are top end.
Video quality is not the best I saw on a BR title but still very good though picture is a bit grainy.
My major disapointment comes from the "dts HD master audio" sound track.
If a regular Dolby Digital wasn't availbe on this BR as a referance, I'd probably had no complains. But switching between the two soundtracks, I found the standard Dolby Digital more dynamic and rich, not mentioning the fact that it sounded much louder.
The dts HD on this BR is an enigma for me...

I couldn't agree more. This is one of the occasions when people watch a great concert give it 5 stars because of the song list but miss the bigger picture (if you'll forgive the pun). The opertunities provided by blu-ray, especially when it comes to music, is the chance to put down a high resolution soundtrack that realy makes you feel you are there. Great concert starting with some Miles Davis and an excellent set but the disappointment comes from the DTS HD MA soundtrack. Very poor. I was expecting alot more from a 24 bit DTS High Definition Master Audio Surround Soundtrack but it completely fails. Frankly the sound engineer who mastered the DTS HD should hold his head in shame. And if anyone from Stevie Wonders management ever reads this please have this remastered by a competent sound engineer who cares about his art. This is an opertunity missed. Why did you bother. I think this is one of those occasion when the publisher has put the $ before the care and quality of the product. Shameful.
