    Hi Grant, I hope your keeping reasonably well, good to see you still posting here, it has gone a bit quiet of late.

    It's my second double up by mistake in last 8 years, so not too bad.

    I hope you enjoyed it, really needs a relaxing spliff along with it. They always remind me of an even more Country version of the Eagles, but their albums vary a bit.

    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.”

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    Following on from my earlier post, I decided to do some digital comparisons of this, I listened earlier to PF - Animals(2018 remix) on CD and greatly enjoyed it. I dug out and connected up my Panosonic Blu-Ray player (not a cheap one, but a 3D Blu-ray player with loads of features and Hi SQ), this was connected to my Audiolab 8300CDQ DAC using Optical, so PCM output from the player. My streaming is via microRendu to the same Audiolab 8300CDQ DAC but via USB.

    I found Animals(2018 remix) on Qobuz. Both the Blu-Ray and Stream versions should be identical as both the 192hz/24bit.

    I started with them in sync and could easily flip from one to the other with a press of a button. Initially I thought both sounded very much the same, but after only a few minutes of switching between the Blu-Ray and the Streamed Qobuz it became apparent that the Blu-Ray sounded better, there is slightly more depth to it, better defined bass, and the sound stage is better. If you had only heard the streamed version then you would have been more than happy, but the Blu-ray definitely has the edge.

    So this raises several questions, it all could be down to my kit, presumably with a better streamer/DAC I would be able to obtain the same detail and depth as the Blu-ray, or would I? A difficult question and probably expensive to investigate and answer!

    One thing is clear to me though the 192hz/24 bit version sounds better to me than the standard CD version.

    I think I now need to very quickly just get back to listening to the Music

    Pink Floyd – Animals (2018 Remix)
    Label: Pink Floyd Records – PFR28D, Pink Floyd Records – 0190295599577
    Format: Blu-ray(192hz/24bit) and Qobuz stream (192hz/24bit)
