    Default Coming 12/21 - Rush 2112 on Blu-Ray Audio!!

    Since the release of "Moving Pictures" on Blu-Ray Audio/DVD-Audio, I've been hoping that "2112" would get the same treatment, and it will be here very soon. Day one purchase for this Rush fan...

    Don't see any mention of a 24-bit version, that would be pretty sad.
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.

    Ah, outstanding! I will hold back on any buying, and wait to see if the 24/96 version shows up on HDTracks like it did with Moving Pictures. This is good news though!

    Thanks Rick. In the cart at Amazon

    There is something puzzling about them choosing DVD-A over SACD. Does not compute?

    I refuse to argue with idiots, because people can't tell the DIFFERENCE!
