The Neil Young Archives Volume 1 is one of the single most impressive Blu-ray box sets yet.  Firstly, it’s a collection of music at 24-bit/192Khz PCM Audiophile quality.  You’re not going to hear Neil Young in better quality unless you’re in the studio with him.  It’s also an interactive experience, allowing you to browse an archive of photos, artwork and letters while still listening.

There are live shows, interviews, and unreleased tracks.  For Neil Young fans, this is the ultimate collection.  As you might expect from something so substantial, it’s not exactly cheap.  The Archives will run you $350, and that’s just for Volume 1, which consists of 1963-1972.

McIntosh appreciates just how impressive this set is, and is giving their customers a sample.  If you pick up the MVP881 BR, McIntosh’s equally impressive universal Blu-ray player, you’ll get a free promotional disc featuring selected tracks from the Neil Young Archives.

“Our alliance with Reprise Records and Neil Young for this Blu-ray promotion is truly a match made in audiophile heaven,” says McIntosh president Charlie Randall.  “McIntosh and Neil Young share a longstanding devotion to high-quality sound, and we’ve both been strong advocates of Blu-ray.  The result is a new type of component that reproduces music in a more realistic and emotionally connecting way.”

The MVP881 BR is available now at an MSRP of $8,000.
