  1. They must have the film versions of everything because the soundtracks for the Blu-Rays and DVD's aren't locked with the sound effects and dialogue. I remember an article about the 2004 release of the OT and A New Hope's music was stereo flipped in the rear speakers (but the sound effects hadn't moved). They could release a version based on the film versions of the scores (which they kind of did with TPM Ultimate Edition).
  2. It does sound better but I think you need a good system to notice. On my normal PC I'd say it sounded 10% better. But on my music system it sounds 25% better than the original CD. I still don't think it tops the Anthology Empire CD though.
  3. I'm so happy that horrible click has disappeared on the first note of The Imperial March and that horrible phase issue that happened at 28 seconds in has gone too!
  4. Can't imagine Star Wars: Force Awakens winning, but I definitely think it should. I can imagine the film getting snubbed due to its financial success.
  5. Oh in that case you have nothing to lose. The Empire Strikes Back 192kHz 24bit is fantastic!
  6. I can't listen to the Vinyl's as I haven't purchased a proper player yet. I've just bought the Empire Strikes Back in 192kHz 24bit Wave Files. I'd say its a 20-30% improvement on the original Empire CD (the original single disk with the LP programme) not the Anthology. I was expecting it to just be turned up but that's not the case, i've compared them side by side and they are the same level. The high resolution one is much brighter.
  7. I've just got my Ultimate Vinyl Collection in the post, the digital download they put in the collection for you to download is 320k MP3. I'm very disappointed as it made it kind of made it out like you would get the 24bit 192kHz Digital Download. The Vinyl packaging is beautiful! I want to buy another set just to frame them! I am returning/exchanging mine back to amazon as 4 of the six soundtracks are damaged at the top. Which one do you think will be the best quality for digital download? from your descriptions is looks like hdtracks.com is the way to go.
  8. I don't know if anyone has pointed this out yet but you can hear the ending of The Imperial March (Concert Arrangement) when Kylo Ren walks down the ramp at the beginning of the Force Awakens. 4.47 - 4.52 2.50 - 2.56
  9. I think this is going to be my second Honourable Mention. Has anyone heard this cue in the Re-Recording with Zubin Mehta? It's great! http://www.amazon.com/ZUBIN-MEHTA-CONDUCTS-SUITES-ENCOUNTERS/dp/B000MS4OAW
  10. 1. Return Of The Jedi: Leia Breaks The News - Funeral Pyre For A Jedi: Love this version above all, so triumphant! The Key change before the theme repeats itself is amazing. 2. The Empire Strikes Back: Losing A Hand: This version when Luke uses the Force to call Leia in the Falcon gives me goosebumps every time I hear it. 3. Star Wars: The Princess Appears: Binary Sunset, just beautiful.
  11. They look beautiful! I'm getting mine on Friday, so i'll post on here what I think to it all. My review will be based on the digital download, not the Vinyl as I don't have a working turntable yet.
  12. 1. The Imperial March 2. The Force Theme 3. Main Theme 4. Across the Stars 5. Duel of the Fates 6. Rey's Theme 7. Kylo Ren's Theme 8. The Asteroid Field 9. Here They Come 10. Battle of the Heroes
