    Default 'Tchaikovsky: Swan Lake' - HIgh-Def Digest Review

    Kenneth's review of 'Tchaikovsky: Swan Lake' has been posted. He says this title features a technically precise performance that fails to impress due to the short-sighted emotional performances of its three leads. The video on the HD DVD is marred by glitches and noise, the supplemental package is nearly non-existent, and the entire production feels weighed down by average production values. This one is for fans only.

    This is really disappointing to hear & will defiantly keep me from grabbing a copy @ $30. Hopefully the price will drop to $20-ish...

    I have had this title for a while, and have enjoyed it very much.
    Luckily I don't know enough about operatic performance to notice any problems with the "leads." Considering the regular price on the blu is over $40 I think it's an ok deal. If it goes lower I would recommend it unconditionally.

    Why is there a thread about an HD DVD review in the BLU-RAY section?

    Also, why am I the first person to realize this!?

    WTF happened? I thought this was supposed to be Lossless.

    I hope the BR at least has it.

    Btw typo, it's High not HIgh.
    OLED, your CRT replacement!!! Perfect blacks and contrast.

    even though it's not lossless, it IS 48khz which should sound very good.

    Jeez... what a late review. There are way better Opus Arte titles on HD DVD. This is the only one that doesn't have Dolby TrueHD.

    No--there doesn't need to be a LFE channel with real instruments! Come on.

    The Blu-Ray will have PCM plus a better AVC encode.

    Die Fledermaus is much better. We HD DVD guys got to be guinea pigs.
