So, here we are with yet another format release for A Night At The Opera... :)

Let's start with the 5.1 mix. As hinted at by the copyright years, this is the same mix that was released on the 30th Anniversary edition CD+DVD pack in 2005. That in turn was largely the same mix as the 2002 DVD-Audio release that was mixed by Elliot Scheiner with input from Roy Thomas Baker, the original producer in 1975, and Brian May. The 2005 mix included an updated version of God Save The Queen by Brian May (the 2002 version was an auto-generated surround mix from the stereo version.), but because this was until now released on normal DVD, it was only available on DTS 96/24 format which was not lossless like the 2002 DVD-Audio disc. So, this Blu-ray is the first time that God Save The Queen 2005 5.1 remix is available in lossless 24-bit 96KHz audio.

Unfortunately, the stereo mix on this Blu-ray release, whilst in 24-bit, 96KHz audio, is the over compressed 2011 Universal Music re-master.... I guess you can make your own mind up on the 2011 Queen remasters, but that is what you get here on the Stereo version.

For both the 5.1 mix and the Stereo mix, you have two choices of audio, LPCM and DTS-HD Master Audio. Both are lossless and 24-bit, 96KHz high resolution. The reason you get both LPCM and DTS-HD is because some systems will handle the DTS-HD better than LPCM. Much depends on your system here. For most there will little or no difference.

So for the Queen collector, this Blu-ray release offers the only full lossless version of the 30th Anniversary mix with the updated God Save The Queen track, and the only official release on disc at high resolution of the 2011 Universal remaster.

Brilliant lossless 5.1 mix for this classic Queen album. Bohemian rhapsody and al the other great tracks are like you never heard before. Highly recommended.

You all know the music so down to the nitty gritty. Firstly you've got what seems to be the standard DTS MA/ PCM 24/96 surround option on these discs. Secondly This is a very aggressive mix, right down to Freddie exclaiming that he knows, to himself, diagonally across 5 speakers! It is sheer surround sound brilliance. The " let me go" exchange from 'Rhapsody is played out across your living room. I have a quite a few surround mixes which are quite subtle (one of which is surround sound Grammy award winner Brothers in Arms), but this is the one you play to friends to demo surround sound music, then they all run out and buy AVR's and bluray players. The clarity of 24/96 playback is amazing. There are those who say it's scientifically proven that there is no difference, clearly they tested the wrong people! If you haven't got surround sound don't worry, there are stereo DTS MA and PCM options too, but it's the surround mix that really shines here which again, is simply astonishing.

Anyone reading this must have heard this album before ether on LP, Cassette, 8 Track, CD, Mobile Fidelity Half Speed Master, SACD, DVD-Audio, and now Blu-Ray Audio. I have them all except 8 Track.

All i can say is that after 'Seaside Rendezvous' what was the last track side 1 of the LP i got up from my listening position ready to turn the LP over, it really is that good. Anyone looking for sound quality then get this version followed closely by the SACD version, anyone who is not fussy then go for the bog standard CD version.

I only listen in LPCM 96khz/24bit 2ch mode so i can not review the 5.1 mix, lets face it if you set your Hi-Fi speakers up correctly then your choice of listening room will be filled with sound anyway.

Recommended.

I used to listen to this album over and over again on vinyl when it was released.
I have to say that this Pure Audio version is nearly as warm sounding as the vinyl copy.
The stand out tracks are 39 and Good Company, sound so great.

I have purchased a few of these Pure Audio discs now (I am one of those audiophiles forever searching hi fi perfection) and the best so far are The Rolling Stones GRRR and Supertramp Breakfast in America.

More please!!!

This classic album really does blow you away on the pure audio format, every vocal is crisp and clear, the stereophonics of the recording sweep the room and the overall depth of the total sound is like nothing I have ever heard before. More releases on the pure audio format please.

I read the reviews of this prior to getting it as a present, and having a high end surround set-up I was not sure what to expect. All I can say is that is is brilliant. Played it to some family members are they were astounded at the quality. Bohemian Rhapsody sounds like never before. Thoroughly recommended.

Considering that this is a recording from 1975, the results are great. When evaluating the sound quality of a 24bit 96KHz sampled disc, I would then have to lower my rating. Of course you can only expect so much from a 38 year old analog tape recording. So the limitations are no fault of the engineers or producers. The remixing and surround audio production is very good and not artificial. It does sound brighter and has more dynamic range and depth than my old CD version, so improvements have been made. I find it unfortunate that this new "pure audio" format is not taking advantage of more of the newest modern recordings, where a real difference should be experienced. I'm hoping many more labels will be released in the future. I think this Blu-Ray "pure audio" format is the ONLY true hope for anybody who enjoys top quality music, in dts or 2 channel flavor. All other attempts have just been half hearted meager attempts with too much emphasis placed on sucking more money from the consumer with ridiculous hardware requirements. Enjoy
