Except for one glaring omission: The DTS2496 format (which is "almost lossless" and it's actually pretty much impossible to tell there's any loss when decoded correctly) gets "core dts" decoded only and sounds quite awful that way. This format is a "ringer" for some hardware machines too (same faux pas). You'll see terrible reviews going off on how DTS2496 absolutely destroys the sound and it's because of improper decoding. It looks for all the world like was done intentionally to try to coax people into upgrading to more expensive machines or media player suites.

    I think at this point it's going to take me a year to catch up to Neonknight!
    Hey Jim and others, just to go back to ripping for personal playback. I have found that free program AudioMuxer can achieve this with perfect results, clean track changes and the ability to tag as well. I just tested this using the Immersion WYWH 2.0, 4.0, & 5.1 sets. Just a heads up.

    Zoom in and you'll see it's the 1972 Obfusc/ation volume, consisting of FOUR discs, one more than the single CD, DVD and Blu-ray from the revised tracklisting. Did they really throw out an entire disc at the last minute, with all the manufacturing problems it would probably entail?
    Gotta think a few were produced. There's a collector's item for you to obsess over!

    If the drab looking individual boxes and disc artwork is anything to go by, I doubt it. It would be nice to hope they have held back revealing the actual finished appearance of the boxes and discs, but again, unlikely.

    So I think we can expect more of the same for the DVD menus, probably arty graphics as per previous releases

    My personal opinion is that they are bootlegging the bootleggers to some extent.

    The stuff that has got me frothing is...

    ‘More’ album non album tracks
    - Hollywood
    - Seabirds

    Nothing pt 1-14
    and the 1969 Atom Heart Mother demo

    the rest i feel i've already got. hopefully the 1967 gig will be of much better quality but i'm not really banking on it. Everything i want is on the 2cd version except for the More content

    Yes we have seen much of the content before but I'd like to place a bet that the quality will be better than we have seen before. Can be that for some clips they haven't been able to find better than the best we have, but for the majority I'm sure it's better ☺
    And there's still room for some good easter eggs, both audio and visual.

    I agree that Seabirds is really a treat. Really looking forward to finally listen to it without voiceover. I can't believe they would actually include it if it wasn't from the original master tape or at least a copy of that.

    Nothing 1 - 14? Doesn't it only state Nothing 14?

    Work on the track 'Echoes' started out as "nothing, parts 1 to ...". Sometimes 'Echoes' is called (by bootleggers?) 'Return of the Sons of Nothing'.


    P.S. Could the discussion 'bout ripping DVD's Blu-rays and converting them be done in a separate topic? It interests me and the info 'bout this is really difficult to find in this topic. O, and by the way, MakeMKV is free. You just have to renew your key every once in a while.

    P.S.2 Made a separate topic about converting DVD/Blu-ray.

    Yes I know, they did Nothing 1 to 24.
    But it seems we will only get part 14.

    There once was an excerpt of a take played at a bbc radio special... There was a snippet with the original lyrics...
    Possibly they used this for the box

    Good to hear that and good to hear from you!

    I'm looking forward to catching up with your uploads and getting into some projects again.
    I really could get sucked into a surround project with something from 69 or 70! I don't know if the right recordings from useful strategic locations exist, but if they do we need to do something with that.

    There's room for improvement on that 1977 show I restored to 5.1 too (including that missing bit from one of the recorders that you uncovered later on). Frankly, there's probably room for improvement on all of them at this point.

    The newer DAW technology now will let me do a lot better sync work and it wont be so 'labor of love' brutal. I pushed Protools HD way past what it was intended to do with those projects and it took a lot of time. Ended up being pretty good training for when I got my hands on the quad Pompeii though.
