It is even just 4.0! Both Center and LFE channels are just silence. Unbelievable. Can anybody else confirm?

Hi and welcome.
Well I just checked my disc again and...no centre channel!!
From where I sit It certainly sounds like it's being used, so I placed my ear near to the centre speaker...nothing.
A true quad mix maybe?
The mix is still good though.....imo

But I might readjust my score from 8.25 to 8.75

Mine was delivered this morning, I'm listening to it now, had to up the rears a bit, but it's sounding good otherwise. I think the shed might be a bit busy at the moment, so shipping is a bit delayed, I expected to get both Tull & Riverside yesterday but Tull came yesterday and Riverside today, hope I'm not rubbing it in, hopefully yours'll come Monday.

Ahhh, 4.0 - just the way I like it 😋 :cool:
See, phantom center is so good you’re questioning if there really is one!🤠

Furthermore :); it’s a real art form being able to mix music with a great phantom center. Just listen to what Steven Wilson does on the Jethro Tull “This Was” side channel mixes; still impresses me on the imaging on that one. There’s plenty of 5.1 mixes out there, that to my ears, just muddies up the whole front sound stage.

Hi guys, agree, I gave it a first spin last night (after my analytics of the true facts ;-) ) and have to say I do not miss the center channel nor the LFE. Phantom center is awesome. However - title of the thread should be updated as it is 4.0 not 4.1. But who needs LFE on music anyway...
