At the peak of his career after Take That, Robbie played a famous concert in 2001 performing the best classic swing tracks.
On the Blu-ray Disc, both 2ch Stereo and DTS5.1 mixes can be found. Played in 2ch stereo direct mode without the use of any up-mixer, the correct positioning of the front speakers can be tested. Vocals should be exactly between the two front speakers if you sit in the stereo tri-angle. On the same sweet spot, you should be able to get a wide soundstage with a nice depth and height too. In the 5.1 mix, a wider audience can enjoy the full effects, as there is more than one sweet spot. The quality of the center speaker and the amplifier electronic is key to getting the nice voice of Robbie presented in the living room with all his charm and charism.
This can be checked by many of the tracks on this disc, however, the most “touching” one is for sure the interpretation of “My Way”, well known through the version sung by Frank Sinatra.
