    Wow! I've discovered another genre I like... Space Music? Spectacular surround mix... "The Launch" just kicks a**! Lovin' this trip

    "Hositility" is friggin' incredible too!!

    In addition to "The Interstellar Suite", which is generally mind-blowing, you also get "Bolero Electronica" which is a really cool history of electronic instruments playing "Bolero", starting with the earliest (in mono), and gradually becoming more complicated (in stereo, then quad) until progressing to the most recent (in 5.1)... this is really cool!

    This is a surround demo disc. The surround effects are done better than in most films.

    How does the 5.1 flac download compare to the bluray as it is expensive to get this sent to the uk especially if it gets hit for import duty.

    My Blu-ray/DVD & Booklet turned up today the booklet is really interesting. It must have cost way more than the P&P charged as it was sent airmail to the UK.

    The Blu-ray is a BD-RW, and extremely well done. I have had the FLAC for a while, and I can't tell any difference. BTW I didn't get charged any Import Duty/VAT or the extortionate tax handling charge.

    I ordered the BR several days ago, but have not received a confirmation from the site. I did receive Paypal notification of payment.

    Is this the norm? Probably I'm concerned about nothing, but this seems unusual.

    I sent a contact email to the site, and got a very pleasant note telling my my copy is shipping today. I pointed them to the QQ thread that is generating so much interest.

    Here's the text:

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for your note.

    As a matter of fact, your order will be shipped today. We've had a sudden influx of orders and are working at meeting that demand as fast as we can.

    We're curious how it is that you came to order Interstellar Suite. How did you hear about it?

    Interesting, no?

    EVERY surround fan should order this! (Even if you're not into the synthesizer music, the sound effects/soundscape alone is worth it... it's like taking a trip into space)

    I got the following email as well:

    "Thank you for requesting The Interstellar Suite. It's great to hear from you.

    We've received an unusual number of requests and are preparing packages to be sent over the next few days.

    I'll send another note once the shipment has been sent.

    Thank you again."

    This must be completely as a result of the people from here ordering this thing.

    I purchased the 24/96 Flac download from High Res Audio. Using Cirlinca, I burned to BDR with an accompanying slide show of the Top 100 Hubble Telescope photos. Interstellar indeed! Spectacular surround mix and dynamic range - a must have for any surround lover.

    Thanks, Duncan.

    I'm glad you received it so quickly! *The mail service is so unpredictable that I never imagine a package will get anywhere faster than I hope.

    Thanks for the information about the forum, it sounds very cool. *Amin is hoping to find some time somewhere in his overlapping deadlines to join the forum and thank everyone.

    I'm rarely 100% certain my surround system is set up optimally. Unsure it's reaching its ultimate potential. As I listen to various music I may hear weak dynamics, weak or excessive bass, odd mixes that just don't sound right, etc.

    Then along comes a title that makes me sit up and say: Damn this sounds fantastic!

    Bhatia's Interstellar Suite is such a title.

    Get this while you can.
    ------
    P.S. Extreme dynamics present. Play loud but be mindful of peak loads on your system.

    I often feel the exact same way. Relentlessly tinkering on some sub-par titles. I can hardly wait to receive this one now!

    I will have to echo what some others have said, order this disk as its a very fun discreet mix that was tailor made for a outer space movie soundtrack.

    Those of you who have this were not kidding, this thing has some effects to go along with the music that will have you duck for cover and made me almost fall out of my seat a few times, very cool.

    Now you got me. I couldn't help but ordering it after all that accolades I was hearing here. Now I really can't wait to listen to this stuff. I really dig artists like Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze and Jean mIchelle Jarre, so I hope this will be in any form reminding me of these musicians...

    If you are "sitting-on-the-fence" I would strongly recommend buying it now whilst you still can (Clint would approve of spending the money! ), we may not be able to purchase it for much longer.
    I wouldn't often describe a piece of music mixed in surround as cinematic, but this is .

    Default Re: Amin Bhatia's Interstellar Suite in 5.1, 25th anniversary edition

    I've had the email saying that they have had an unusual number of requests and are preparing packages...please hold tight.

    That was on October 5th. Anyone got an idea of how long the wait is? I'm getting impatient with all these positive comments.
