    Hey

    Wanted to start a thread about great sounding dvd music videos (Like concerts and stuff). I see a lot of music dvd's out there but sometimes I wonder if the sound quality, picture etc. is worth the investment. I've got a few I'd like to suggest.

    1. Boz Scaggs greatest hits live (DTS-DD-SRS)

    2. Hall & Oates live in concert (DD 5.1 & stereo) comes with cd of concert as well.

    Both sound great and shot in widescreen.

    3. Led Zeppelin-new boxed set (DTS-DD 5.1 & stereo)
    Sounds very good. Shot from alot of different shows so source quality varies. Just happens to be one of my favorite bands. (no wonder why it's on the list)

    Diana Krall - Live in Paris (DTS)

    The Bee Gees - One Night Only (Kill Me now :b )

    Kraftwerk - Minimum-Maximum = easily the best-sounding music DVD ever. The picture quality is good, but perhaps not as outstanding.

    My standard suggestion is Roger Waters "In the Flesh Live". Originally shot in HD, with outstanding sonics.

    Of course, you would need to like Pink Floyd to enjoy the set. I do and I did!

    As a bonus, its usually available pretty cheap.

    Eric Claptons's "Crossroads Guitar Festival" is also a killer set both visually and sonically.

    Judas Priest's Rising in the East (recently released). DTS, 5.1, PCM.

    Almost as good as the real concert...almost. [​IMG]

    Keller Williams 'Sight' he's such a quirky guy, but an amazing musician, a solid 5.1 mix and a nice small club feel.

    Also been enjoying my Charlie Hunter Quintet 'Right Now Live' disc, very well shot, the only thing annoying is that there's like a title card in between each song with the name, kinda breaks up the concert feel, but still enjoyable.

    Dave Matthews Band - Central Park Concert - This is the DVD I always use to show off my HTS, great video and sound.

    John Mayer - Any Given Thursday - not only is he really good live, but he did a commentary track for the whole concert and that's just as fun to listen to.

    I am on the fence about the Clapton Crossroads, what annoyed me is songs like "Cocaine" are spread out over 3 chapter stops. For me that's a little annoying, I like to rip the DVD's to listen to in the car and to figure out what was what was annoying. But that's probably my only complaint.

    Is that new?

    The new Cream reunion disc looks and sounds great, but that's not always a good thing -- those guys haven't aged very well (referring to their appearance here -- they can still play, but they don't look too healthy [​IMG] ).

    No - but to give it its full title "Yes Symphonic - Live in Amsterdam" - the band play with a full symphony orchestra - I was sceptical but it works! Some real gems on here like "Close to the Edge" and "Gates of Delirium" - sound is excellent IMHO - full details here ...

    Nine Inch Nails And All That Could Have Been in full bitrate DTS is a very good one.

    Diana Krall Live in Paris is reference material for me [​IMG]

    Toto in Amsterdam, ELO's Zoom, Dream Theater (the one from somewhere in Japan), Three Dog Nite in Tennessee (DON"T kill me now! I've suffered so much already). But really, it's very good. Peter Frampton in Detroit is pretty good too. Toto, Steely Dan, ELO and the best of the best (IMO) Bozz Skaggs, top my short list with 3 Dog Nite and The Eagles Farwell 1 very close behind. Oh, and Fleetwood Mac's "The Dance" is worth the $20 just for "Silver Springs" [​IMG]

    For concerts:

    Dream Theater: Live at Budokan (the corrected-audio version of course)

    Pat Metheny Group: Speaking of Now Live (anamorphic widescreen and DTS)

    For music videos:

    Def Leppard: Rock of Ages (a pretty good DTS mix; some videos are missing though)

    I'm sure there are many other music video DVDs that are good.
