    Is it possible that this blu-ray audio will sound different, in the same way that The Doors sounded different on blu? (in this case, compared to the older DVD-Audio)

    It could be possible that the Blu-Ray could sound a little different compared to the DVD-A/V or SACD if they went with a different mastering, but it's still gonna be the same mix, so it still would not sound that different at all.
    I'm betting it will sound near identical to what we already have.

    Surround yourself with the best.

    Coming soon in 2017: "Eye in the Sky" (The Alan Parsons Project), "Black Sea" (XTC) and "A Farewell to Kings" (RUSH)!
    Already released: "Songs from the Wood" (Jethro Tull); "Misplaced Childhood" (Marillion); "Three Piece Suite" (Gentle Giant) and "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band"

    I知 betting it won稚 sound as good if DTS Master Audio is used. Hopefully, there will be the better Dolby HD codec included. Then maybe, it might sound indistinguishable.

    I may have to get this one too to find out.

    Huh... I've never had a problem with any DTS codec as far as sound quality is concerned. The lossy DTS is an improvement on AC3 Dolby Digital and the lossless DTS-HD Master Audio is... Well, lossless. Properly decoded lossless should sound the same no matter the codec. What, in your estimation, makes Dolby TrueHD better?

    DTS-HDMA is lossless. There is no 'better Dolby HD codec'.

    Thanks! I ordered using this link. The product page listed a price of EU 39.49. At checkout somehow it was reduced to EU 33,19 (plus 3,33 shipping to U.S.)

    Total $44.20

    Almost too good to be true....

    I couldnエt resist buying this yesterday after reading this thread.
    I wondered if it was the box they were selling or an standalone version which not has been announced as far as i know.
    Today it seems like they had made an mistake
    https://www.amazon.de/Hotel-Californ.../dp/B076BWHMDP
    Now it says it is an box that is sold and the price is up to EUR 96,99!
    I guess we who have bought have really made a bargain!

    I wish i had bought two also.
    As i said i suspected that i might just get an standalone Bluray and in that case the price would have been quite high.
    That was the only thing that made me wait some minutes with my order.
    But then i thought i just as well should buy it in case it is only released in Germany as an standalone disc

    I missed this good price gone in a flash too. Also, surprised SDE missed this one. Otherwise, I would have seen it sooner.

    Maybe, something will come up for News Of The World.

    OH wow. Not sure if the price guarantee will come to the rescue. Didn't this happen on some other title about a year ago and "whoever" offered it for some ridiculously low price and many of us snatched it up...only to eventually get an email saying the listing was wrong and our orders were cancelled? Yeah, it was SGT Pepper......remember that fiasco??

    Nothing has changed from when I ordered, only the price. When I ordered yesterday, the listing was the same. It said box set and it listed the 3 discs in the summary. So I guess their mistake (if in fact it was a mistake) was the low price.

    Well this is strange.
    I must have bought mine after you and i was puzzled by the fact that it didnエt say "box" anywhere and the other 3cds where not mentioned.
    It just said "Bluray audio".
    I guess they where doing changes during the day.
    If we will get the discs for this price is something to just hope for.

    I think its one of those where they put a few sets at price X, get some interest & sales, then up the price. There have been quite a few like that which SDE has highlighted as a bargain, normally Amazon Italy, yet when I've gone there the price has gone up. But I've been lucky on a few, including the Eagles. When I follow the link on my cheap order confirmation email it goes to the new expensive price so looks Ok for us lucky few. Though I wouldn't have paid the full price as I have it on DVD-A & Japanese 5.1 SACD...............and its not my favourite Eagles album.............come on Rhino give us an Eagles Quadio!
    254 SACD (219 Multi, 35 Stereo), 218 DVD-Audio/DTS/DD, 27 Blu-ray Audio (19 Multi, 8 Stereo), 14 SQ LPs, 2218 plain old stereo CDs

But I've been lucky on a few, including the Eagles. When I follow the link on my cheap order confirmation email it goes to the new expensive price so looks Ok for us lucky few. Though I wouldn't have paid the full price as I have it on DVD-A & Japanese 5.1 SACD...............and its not my favourite Eagles album.............come on Rhino give us an Eagles Quadio!
    I think you are right about the pricing..for that to work for amazon they would have to start out at the low price...from day one...because if they didn't they would have to give the cheaper price to all those that ordered from the start...that is amazon's policy...and in this case that appears to be what happened...I already have a surround version so I'm not interested in this one...but I am concerned...my friend Gos has ordered a copy of this release...and if there is damage to his set this could be trouble for the Germans...I've already given this information to the American consulate in Germany...let's just hope for a damage free delivery for Gos
