5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most beautiful and relaxing albums I have ever heard, 21 April 2016

One of the most beautiful and relaxing albums I have ever heard. The quality of the blu-ray 5.1 mix is also superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hi-res listening for iPhone., 5 Feb. 2016
Great headphones to use in conjunction with your iPhone/iPad with lightning connector. These headphones will not work with anything else as there is no jack adaptor available. Due to the built in DAC, the sound is one of the best I've managed to achieve from a portable device - something I've spent a fair bit of time and money on over the years. They sound good when listening to iTunes downloads at 256kbs but these cans really come into their own when listening to lossless rips or hi-res music. The sound is very natural and suit all types of music. I'm using the Onkyo HF player app to listen to the higher quality music which I can also recommend. You can control volume and track changes etc from buttons on the side of the headphones which are easily accessible and intuitive to use. You can take phone calls but you have to speak into the phone as there is no microphone due to only a digital signal being transmitted up the cable. They are quite tight fitting but this does lead to good passive noise reduction. If you want to achieve a hi-res listening experience from your iPhone or iPad then I can highly recommend these headphones.

5.0 out of 5 stars An overlooked gem!, 31 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Amused To Death (Audio CD)
Had this album been released under the Pink Floyd banner, and been the follow-up to The Wall, it would have sold millions. One of the most over-looked albums ever (other than by hard core Waters fans of course). This remaster / remix just improves even more upon a work of genius. Also one of the best 5.1 mixes ever on the blu-ray. I love all Floyd related music but it was Waters who gave Floyd it's edge. Listening to this again made me realise just how much that is the case. Brilliant!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing movie, 13 Jun. 2014
Great surfing. Great cinematography. Based on a true story+get one of the worst films I have seen. Appalling acting and direction (of acted, not surf scenes) ..Shame - could've been one of the great surf movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best camera I ever bought, 13 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've always been into photography at an amateur level from 35mm through to digital. Current DSLR is a Canon 60d but this Samsung offering is amazing. Not quite the image quality of the 60d but not far off - and due to it's size you can take it anywhere. Great low light performance too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Turns the ex2f into a fast shooter., 23 Jun. 2013
Excellent product for ex2f owners. I use the camera in situations where I need to take a photo quickly. I had found that with the need to remove the lens cap, valuable seconds could be lost. With this gadget the cap opens immediately ready for taking the photo. Recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Every album is a winner, 11 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have listened to only the first 8 albums so far - up to Eliminator, and contrary to another reviewer I believe that the sound quality is great - anything but 'thin'. This box set has the all-important original mixes of the albums and there is no evidence of over-compression to my ears - which is what makes CD's loud but ultimately ends up loosing the 'light and shade' we used to get with vinyl. There is a warm 'analogue' feel to these CD's. I, for one, would much rather a quiet CD which retains the dynamics or the original recording.
Great sound, great songs and a bargain price for 10 Cd's.

4.0 out of 5 stars it is 3d, 24 Feb. 2013
Just watched this and contrary to previous review I can report that it is definitely in 3d - and very good 3d at that. Not post converted. Also has a watch in 2d option. Very interesting documentary brought to life by the 3d.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hi rez heaven, 28 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Emerson, Lake & Palmer (Audio CD)
For the money this is an amazing package. Won't review the music, as if you're going to buy this you probably know that this is one of ELP's best (in my opinion anyway). For your money you get 2 cd's and 1 dvd. CD 1- the original album mix. CD 2 - alternate mixes by remastering/remixing guru Steve Wilson. The best part is the DVD which contains the album in lossless 5.1 DVD Audio (only accessible if you have a dvd audio player), Hi rez stereo plus Dolby and DTS 5.1 (all of which are accessible from a standard DVD or blu-ray player). The album sounds amazing in surround. Thanks to Steve Wilson for helping to keep this format alive. Have just ordered Tarkus on the strength of this purchase.
