Covak Posted February 4, 2005 Report Share Posted February 4, 2005 I recently got Logitech's Z-5500 speaker system and now I can't get enough of 5.1 music. Here's what little I've got with some impressions... Metallica - The Black Album (DVD-Audio) - So powerful that going back to the CD is painful. There's some retarded "Look, we've got 3 front speakers!" panning on the Enter Sandman solo but otherwise it's great. Front-heavy, but the surrounds get a little love now and then and it always feels appropriate and natural. Eagles - Hotel California (DVD-Audio) - Really nice. Heavy use of the surrounds throughout, which is interesting. With New Kid In Town, for example, the acoustic rhythm guitars are behind you to either side. It seemed odd at first but it actually works really well. With Hotel California, which often has 5 guitar parts going, each speaker gets its own guitar. And I've never been a big fan of Victim Of Love but the 5.1 mix here is really rockin. Eagles - Hell Freezes Over (DVD with DTS) - Mixed to sound like you're front row center. Easily the best live recordings I've ever heard (which isn't saying too much since I'm not into live stuff much). And other than that, not much :/ I enjoy the Dolby Digital mix of Billy Jean on some Michael Jackson DVD I have. I'm looking to pick up the DVD-As of Chicago II and Beck's Sea Change, since I love a few songs off those. Other than that, I'm wide open to suggestions. DVD-As, DTS CDs, live performances on DVD, whatever. If you've got 'em I'd love to hear about 'em Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
