Purple on blue ray


I've always been happy with dvds but this last christmas brought a blue ray player (a PS4 for the kids actually) so I'm thinking about buying my first Dp disc. Any suggestions? I was thinking about the Montreaux 2006-2011 double bundle, anybody has it?

Nobody into DP blue rays? Well I just bought the two Montreux shows together with Rush Clockwork angels tour. I'll let "nobody" know my impressions when I get them! emoticon

All of mine are on dvd so I haven't had a chance to see any DP Blu-Rays yet. As much as I've re-bought stuff over the years, I'm not in any hurry to replace what I already own. If a NEW Blu-Ray comes out, then I'll get it in that format.

My thoughts as well, but since the last one (Perfect Live) is only out on DVD, that's for the next one. Actually I only have on Blu Ray the Paris 85 that rockpalast recently re-aired in HD and that a friend recorded and sent me in BR !

Cool!

Are they putting these old things out on BD anyway? The last shows, for example, (Purple '84 and Rainbow '95) were only released on DVD. I imagine the cost of transfer is simply too high in comparison to expected earnings.

EDIT: I happy with DP DVDs - it's usually the sound that leaves something to be desired.

Right, so am I. The sound isn't something I can't manipulate a little with the system I have so I never saw the point to replacing them with BR. Besides, it seems to me the BR's would show the audio flaws even more than the DVDs do.

BUT like I said, the next time a new one gets released, I'll get the BR version.
