    Yes, getting it in multi-channel. After all, the multi-channel version (on DVD-A) won the Grammy for best surround sound album back in 2005.

    But knowing MoFi, it will be stereo only. At least the album is making its debut on SACD in the US.

    Buyin' it! Thanks Danny for the info! I am going to be spending too much money on MFSL and Audio Fidelity SACD's in the next few months! But I will get some outstanding sounding music. It's a worthwhile tradeoff.

    It's not yet because it's not released. In all seriousness, this will blow your SACD out of the water in terms of sound quality. (this is assuming MFSL does it's usual outstanding job on mastering it of course).

    I wish it would have come out as a single layer SHM-SACD like it was suppose to.

    Agreed Jesse. This is a good second best, however. I wish MFSL would do SHM-SACD's. Best of all worlds.
