How the shitting hell did I miss this one?? I’ve been a devoted (pardon the pun) Depeche Mode fan since 1997’s “Violator” and have worked backwards as well as including all subsequent releases to ensure I get my full fix.0 comments
The argument about vinyl vs digital media is thrown right out the window when you stick a remuxed, DVD-Audio disc such as this into a half-decent media player.
The moment the full on mids and treble hits your ears and the bass rumbles your viscera, you know why you’ve kept the good stuff.
This CD/DVD set is one of many Hi-Res discs that I’ve held onto knowing that this really is the benchmark for fabulous sound.
Unless you spend thousands on a high-end vinyl playing turntable, an equally expensive moving coil cartrige, multiple, tube-based audio components AND large finicky speakers, you simply can’t compare it to this.
While it’s not their best record, it sounds magnificent!
