Handel, Croft - The Netherlands Bach Society          (5 of 5 found this review helpful)
  February 4, 2013

A couple of weeks ago I happened upon an online article that spoke to the approaching celebrations being planned for Utrecht, Holland to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the Treaty of Utrecht that was signed in 1713.

Tchaikovsky: Manfred Symphony - Kitajenko        (16 of 16 found this review helpful)
  August 2, 2012

I have listened to the Kitajenko conducted Tschaikowsky Manfred Symphony numerous times over the past two years. My opinions have evolved but not by that much. Out of the gate I found this recording to have far and away superior sound than other Manfred's I own but thought that the performance came ... more

On more than one occasion I was going to share more detailed thoughts about it ... more

So, I did an eeny meeny miny mo and ... more

Jared Sacks' visit to the San Francisco Bay Area
March 7, 2013
And a real plus of downloads is being to almost instantly locate the loudest passages (to optimize volume setting) on the time line. Also, the prospect of having access to DSD "raw files" is most unique and could be worth the price of admission. Although, two-channel downloads, no matter what the resolution, is unimportant to me. ... more

There is currently a discussion at Hi-Rez about this player. The OP compares the analog outs vs. the HDMI and seems to think both outs are the cats meow. Robert C. Lang ... more
