Quote:
Can you save data in different formats such as audio, video, still pictures and documents on a single SD card?
Yes, you can save data in different formats as long as the card has sufficient memory capacity. However, to play or transfer the data you will need equipment that is compatible with the appropriate data format such as SD-Audio, SD-Video and SD Document.
- .wav files on USB are to be approximately 278 times better quality than the ones on the CD, likely to be digital masters of the songs, also includes regular .aiff files
- microSD+USB+DVD+photobook edition will be housed in a 3 fold LP-sized packaging like the following image but LP-sized instead of CD-sized.

'アナログLPサイズの3つ折りパッケージにmicroSDとUSB、DVD、フォトブック、歌詞ブックレ ッ トが全て同梱されています。'

Dream ON - Masashi Muto

Masashi Muto was seen in Los Angeles via Luis Hernandez's Twitter directing PVs for tracks on Love songs. One seemed to involve the male model from Virgin Road with the other involving a plane crash and SWAT team. Perhaps they are one in the same? (See the photos at Luis' Twitpic: http://twitpic.com/photos/ishiiluis)

Some PV editing photos from Masashi Muto's plixi! Looks like they were working on Dream ON in the first one and the second one looks like Ayu around the plane crash site in whatever PV has the plane in it?

The 2nd photo looks really awesome!

I think the threads will probably slow down now that we have all the information except new PVs/new songs.

But who knows, we might hit number 8 or 9, haha. It's a bit sad that this time around, no album tracks other than Love song got a tie-up deal... not even music.jp or mu-mo!

I think the first-day sales are going to kill UHSC2's first-day sales

I dunno, if it's the effect of waking up after a long night but I thought the covers were just okay-ish yesterday but now I think I love them. They're gorgeous. *__*

Love song sounds so different for Ayu, if I weren't watching the snippet I'd think it were a different artist. It's stuck in my head just from one listen, I'm more anxious to hear the full now.

too much photoshoped and retouched for【Dream ON】covers, should have been better...

The mu-mo shop put up large versions of all the covers!

I'm gonna go capture them in a bit.

Gorgeous. A pixel or two might be missing though.

Today I'm liking the cd+dvd cover. I think its because of better quality. Overall I love the covers. They are much but very much better than R'n'RC covers =D. Ayu is very soft and I aprecciate that =). In other way I didn't like that much DREAM ON covers. Ayu is forcing so much the posing with her face. UN is very good on covers, but the photoshop Panasonic wannabe are too much for me =).
Anyway, actually I ain't very anxious for Love song =). I prefer to leak the whole album than just one song =).
I'm more happy with the results (singles + covers + pvs) of Love Songs than RnRC =D.

I feel like the photobook cover is the best of them all. WHY couldn't that have replaced the so-so CD+DVD version?
