"...With a release date of November 7th, in time for the holiday shopping season, Warner Music Group becomes the first of the major music companies to offer albums in the DVD-Audio format. The new format, which features Advanced Resolution, multi-channel audio that dramatically enhances the listening experience, is the most significant industry format launch since the introduction of the CD nearly twenty years ago.
Sharon Corr, violinist/vocalist with multi-million-selling group The Corrs (whose latest album, In Blue, will be released in DVD-Audio in November), said: ``Any time a new technology brings the listener closer to the artist, we're all for it. Through DVD-Audio, our fans can really feel as if they are in the middle of the band, and experience our music the way we experience it -- whether in the studio or, in the case of a live album, on stage.''
All albums released from WMG labels will offer consumers the flexibility of being able to be played in three ways: first, in Advanced Resolution surround sound; second, in Advanced Resolution stereo; and third, for those who own a DVD-Video player but have not yet upgraded to DVD-Audio, DVD-Video compatible Dolby Digital surround. This last feature will enable the discs to be played in the nearly 10 million DVD-Video players already in U.S. homes..."
