I’ve been meaning to buy “Hell Freezes Over” by The Eagles for some time and finally was in a store and had my short term memory wired to ‘receive’ for a change. So I grabbed one out of the rack, wondering briefly why the damn jewel case was larger than the two Miles Davis CDs I was also buying, but figured “more Madison Ave. BS”.
So I get home and open it, and notice for the first time that on the cover it says (in small print) “For DTS-Capable 5.1 Sound Systems”. Yeah, right, says I and stick it in the player. Nothing but white noise (my Denon amp is not DTS-capable). It plays fine in my DVD player with the Yamaha DTS amp (and sounds great, by the way), but otherwise, I guess I’m screwed.
Is this something new, or am I just hopelessly behind the information curve? Anybody want to trade a normal CD for this one?
