Can someone shed some light on this.

The back cover says 5.1 mix Original 24bit/88khz source material but

the the screen menu say 24bit/96khz.

So who is correct.

Sounds OK, a little bright on my system and me being a bass head wanted more bottom end.

Hoop, I should have my copy this week.

Sometimes I think that the Sound engineers who remix motion pictures should tackle some of these 5.1 remixes because an awful lot of the Universal BD~As ARE bass~LITE. And my system is capable of prodigious amounts of bass from BD~Vs and even FIOS Dolby Digital.

Instead of the cry for "Where's the Beef........I'll add, Where's the bass?"

I just add a little bass and it does sound very good. The drums have this odd echo in the rear channel but besides that it's enjoyable.

A couple of posters over at QQ have stated that the rears are full of reverb and piano.

Definitely NOT a Steve Wilson caliber remix, undoubtedly.

Was listening to a Frank Zappa DVD~A last night (Quaudiophiliac) from DTS Entertainment and although it gathers cuts from various Zappa albums, I was astounded by the bass and spine tingling quality of the remix (although SOME cuts were mono rear ambience...while most were Steve Wilson caliber discreet remixes).

Also, what Al Kooper managed to do with BS&T's first album (from 1968) was nothing short of astonishing....plenty of bass, vocals were well prioritized and the surrounds were magnificent (although some might argue....overdone).

Reckless was published in 1984, so it can not be 24/88 source material, only analog tape.

If I am not mistaken BluRay disks do not have 88.2 kHz sampling rate option, so 88.2 kHz tape transfers get up sampled to 96 kHz (twice the standard video rate). With less than CD quality source material what does it matter?

...

Having no interest whatsoever in B. Adams, just a note: anything prior and up to '84 is most likely *analogue* tape (as is the record at issue here), but there are a couple of exceptions, as you undoubtedly know, e.g.: Ry Cooder's Bop Till You Drop ('79), Donald Fagen's Nightfly ('82), and Peter Gabriel's 4/Security ('82), all digitally recorded (albeit 16/44.1, I suppose) and all great sounding (relative to what was possible).

Yes, I got the LP in -79 partly because I wanted to hear this wonderful digital recording method.

If B. Adams was recorded in digital (most likely and surely not) 24/88.2 it can not be.

QQ'ers need their ears testing, Ralph ! ( There's certainly more going on than reverb & piano. )

No it isn't, thank God !...it's far superior to anything SW has mixed ! ( If only Bob Clearmountain had mixed, Songs From The Big Chair", it wouldn't have sounded unbalanced, in places.
Don't get me wrong, it's a enjoyable disc & great to hear in 5.1, but it could have been so much better ! ( It might be wise to hold your judgement, until you actually receive your disc ! ?? )

I remember all those years ago when i first saw and heard "Run To You" there were so many classic albums of the 80's i felt "Reckless" slipped slightly
under the radar, although i am not a fan of all artists there are some real gems
that were released in the 80's that were huge or should i say massive: Michael
Jackson "Thriller" Roxy Music "Avalon", Madonna, Guns & Roses "Appetite"
Bruce Springsteen, U2 "The Joshua Tree" Beastie Boys, now we come to Bryan Adams classic album in all it's glory, although i haven't played all of the 3 selected surround sound mixes, at the moment it sounds simply superb, a welcome
addition to my already expanding super deluxe edition albums, i am sure there
will be more on the way, brilliant.

As I said on the box set thread, it's simply a faultless disc. Mix wise, a contender for one of the best surround mixes ever ?? ( If not, certainly on a par, with the best. )
Let's hope there are more top notch quality releases like this, in the months ahead ?
