I just had a chance to listen to the disc and thought I would share some brief notes. The disc is not written to the v1.1 spec and Group 1 is the Advanced Resolution Surround Mix, Group 3 is the Advanced Resolution Stereo Mix and Groups 4 and 5 are the DD and DTS 5.1 mixes. I did not get a chance to listen to the DD or DTS mixes. For those like me with a player (Pioneer Elite DV-47A) without a group button either a video monitor is required to switch between the groups (or extreme luck or psychic ability). The bonus materials include lyrics, photo gallery, Capital Records discography (including brief audio snippets of a portion of a cut from each album), other EMI DVD-A title listings, web links and credits. Many moons ago, I owned a vinyl set-up with the album. That was when I had pigment in my hair and did not tell people it got this color since I just painted my kitchen ceiling. I have the CD of The Band "Anthology Vol. 1" which includes "The Weight," "Chest Fever," and "I Shall Be Released." In addition to the above-noted DVD-A player, the equipment set-up consists of a Bryston SP1.7 pre/pro, a Proceed HPA3 amp for the front channels, a Proceed BPA amp for the rears, Thiel 7.2s for the left and right along with 2 Rel Storm IIIs via their high level connection, a Thiel MCS1 center along with a Rel Q150 also via the high level connection, Thiel Power Point rears along with a Rel Strata III also via a high level connection. For comparison of the CD tracks I used a Sony XA-777ES which has just had Dan Wright's Absolute Truth Mod. All interconnects, speaker wires and power cords I made using my own design and the room includes 3 ASC tube traps and other acoustical treatments and isolation treatments. Also the multi-channel input of the DV-47A is going into a Sony TA-P9000ES preamp (to apply analog volume level controls) before going into the Bryston pre-amp. I first listened to the disc in its entirety and then compared the 3 tracks I have on CD. On "The Weight," the guitar in the beginning as well as the piano and percussion sounded slow and recessed on the CD vs. the DVD-A. The vocals were also slightly more spread out accross the front soundstage with the DVD-A, with the lead vocal appearing a bit more to the right side of the soundstage. The midrange was smoother and the percussion and bass were more alive on the DVD-A. Similar differences were noted on "Chest Fever" and "I Shall Be Released." I could clearly hear the individual bass notes much clearer on "Chest Fever" and the percussion and bass were much cleaner as well on "I Shall Be Released." I then listened the Advanced Resolution Surround mix. Everyone should know up front that I probably don't like 75% of the multi-channel mixes on DVD-As or SACDs I have. Even mixes a majority of people probably like. I feel many mixes include distracting info in the rears vs. enchancing the music. I must say that EMI did a great job on the MC mix. One could clearly hear greater width and depth in each song. One could tell at some points that the rears were barely on and for my personal preference I would have toned them down perhaps a single dB. I probably won't listen to the stereo mix on this disc again (unless someone is over that wants to hear it). This is a winner from EMI.
