Gold CD

I have the Gold CD and the new remaster is slightly better. There's more space to the sound. I think it's MUCH better than the original CD, but I have a good audio card, headphones, home theatre system, and amplifier so differences are also amplified.

The holy grail is have a format like DVD audio, or Blu-ray with enough memory to display the original master which is 10 times better and more nuance than any remastered CD could provide. I have Dark side of the moon DVD-audio and the talking in the background is much more clear and understandable than any CD version. You can actually tel what they are saying with ease. There are some REM albums and Beck albums if you like them and they sound much better. The results are more emotional and pleasing to the ear. CD's have less memory so there's always lots of compression going on.

Red Hill Mining Town or Until the end of the world in DTS Master Audio would probably have much more nuance. You can hear the crispness of vocals and much more detail in the instruments. You also don't need too much volume with quality sound like that. My Pet Sounds DVD audio you need very little volume on the computer to enjoy that.

We'll probably have to wait for a new sound format to arise when U2 are retired and want to sell box sets. Until a higher quality format is adopted by the majority of the population U2 will not release stuff in higher quality.

Yeah... you´re right saying that is precious... It worths much more than any jewel for me... and there´s absolutely no problem having so much Bono´s caption on the DVD... after all isn´t he the leader sing of the band ?

I got it the first day it came out for $29.

I love it. The sound is definitely better, hands down.
Worth every penny, even at $60

I bought it today. It's a really amazing boxset, one of the first times I felt that U2 is finally giving something for the true hardcore fan.

Agreed. The Boy/October/War remasters have been extremely poor in comparison.

I love the packaging for Boy to War better than the bulky Joshua Tree. The sound quality is much better than the original CDs at least.

You can't have been expecting the same level of extreme effort that they gave their watershed album for their much-less-well-known early works. I think what we got for all four was stellar (still don't understand why "Out of Control (Live From Boston)" went missing on BOY, though)...

Doesn't take extreme effort to know all those remixes aren't that attractive an option, to throw in maybe complete Boston concert, compile a live DVD for each one, etc.

There is a TON of Boy, October and War-era Pro-Shot TV appearances and Concerts.

So i'll still stick with my assessment/opinion. The quality of the remasters themselves are excellent. Single-Disc option for me when I get around to it, nothing in the extras is much of an enticement.

Though I know there's a healthy section of the fanbase that feels as you do, I must disagree--having all of the b-sides remastered and consolidated in one spot is far more attractive to me than any other options. I'll agree that a DVD for each album would be divine, but so unrealistic...

Why do you think it would be unrealistic ? if it's from a McGuine$$$$ "why give it away we can charge $20 for it later" perspective, maybe. But technically it's not difficult at all, and since they seem to be exhuming the archives I think it would be reasonable to expect something.
