Default First Blu-ray music album released!

First Blu-ray music album

Well it's a start!



Norwegian orchestra gets full HD audio treatment

NEWS: 30 May 2008 12:20 GMT by Amy-Mae Elliott

Although we've seen concert videos launched on the format, the first standalone Blu-ray music recording has only just been released.

The very first Blu-ray music disc to hit the shelves is from Thondheimsolistene, an orchestra from Norway.

"Divertimenti" will be released by the 2L label offering full fat HD audio, a feat enabled by the amount of data a Blu-ray disc can store.

Formats include 2.0 LPCM, 5.1 LPCM, 5.1 DTS HD Master Audio, 5.1 Dolby True HD and 5.1 Dolby Digital at 48KHz.

It will be interesting to see how many other labels follow suit - high-def audio formats have never really broken through to the mainstream with rival formats DVD-Audio and SACD in the realms of audiophile-only markets.

The new disc costs 189 Norwegian krone, which is about 19.


I hope when mainstream groups start doing this they include MP3's & videos as well as video liner notes & artists comments.

This is actually an amazing item!

It's a CD compatible, SACD/Blu-ray Hybrid disc!!!

I bought a copy, found it on some Norwegian music site, cost like $40 US shipped but who cares! I need to see how good it can sound, and being able to directly A-B identical music with SACD will be cool!!!
