Playable on DVD-Video and DVD-Audio players On a DVD-Video player the first menu will present you with a choice of two audio streams - two channel (UHJ encoded) PCM, which is equivalent to CD-Audio, or four channel DTS. If you have a Surround Sound playback system including a DTS decoder you should choose the DTS option. Otherwise you should choose the 2 channel version. You can switch between streams during playback using the Audio button on your remote control. On a DVD-Audio player there are no menus - the disc behaves in a similar way to a CD. There is only one audio stream available on DVD-Audio players - 4 channel MLP. All DVD-Audio players are capable of decoding MLP. If your DVD-Audio system is configured with only two speakers you will hear a downmix derived from the four channel version, which is different from the two channel (UHJ encoded) version available as part of the DVD-Video area of the disc. The four channels in the DTS and MLP streams have been derived from the original recording masters using specially optimised Ambisonic decoding software. The four channels are front left and right, and back left and right. The centre and LFE channels are intentionally silent. The decoding software assumes the speakers to be arranged in a square with the listener in the middle. Tests have been performed using a variety of speaker and listener positions, and this target arrangement has been chosen as a compromise that works well for a variety of speaker positions. Material decoded in this way works particularly well with the standard ITU speaker layout which may be recommended by your home theatre amplifier supplier. Enrico Caruso was an Italian tenor. He sang to great acclaim at the major opera houses of Europe and North and South America, appearing in a wide variety of roles from the Italian and French repertoires that ranged from the lyric to the dramatic. "One might expect with these Neapolitan songs that two or three would be quite enough at a time. In fact I found that, having put the disc on, I couldn't bring myself to turn it off. The closest comparison is like getting through a box of chocolates, when you meant only to sample them. I don't ever remember responding so warmly to Caruso's voice as on this disc. Listen and marvel. Addictive listening. The presence of the voice is astounding."

Michael Tanner, Classic CD
Reviews "First off, the sheer number of recordings included is awesome! But the sound is the real winner here. I have heard every incarnation of these recordings, from the old one-sided 78rpm discs I grew up with, through the excellent digitized releases on cd that tried to reverse the effects of the acoustical horn Caruso sing into, to this new DVD-audio set. Both of these latter releases make the rather wooden-sounding voice on the original 78's come alive and sound like the hot-blooded Italian he was." - Rod Parke
