Doesn't that look good already? :)

I'm really pleased to see Esoteric doing so much surround as they have previously found it hard to justify on commercial grounds. Could this be another sign of a strengthening market?

Exactly! Hopefully they'll go with the DVD-A format - at least for some releases...

No problem! I know of a couple more in the pipeline, but am sworn to secrecy at the moment! Exciting times, though :) QQ will be first to know once I can "go public."

btw can you edit your list to say "Sanctuary II" rather than just "Sanctuary", please? Sanctuary is already out in 5.1 and Sanctuary II is the follow up album, currently being mixed.

Sorry about the typo (yes, I'm well aware it's a follow-up!) and thank you for promising info!

It's really interesting to compare this with the lists of previous years. For example looking at the totals for 2013, 2014 and 2015 we have 39, 50 and 70 respectively and we already know about 17 in 2016. In fact I know of at least another two that haven't been announced yet, which makes 19 so far this year. Exponential growth, anyone? ;)

Here's to another wonderful year in surround! Last year was truly exceptional - the total for 2010, the most desperate of them all, was only 38...

I appreciate this master list. Maybe it's just me, but I'm feeling 2016 is a little thin so far. If you take out the re-do's (e.g., Beck, Tull, Hackett) and the quad transfers, the list gets a lot shorter. I am still wanting to see a knock-em dead must-have new mix monster! Like the Yes, Crimson, Giant, etc. of last year..

Maybe a bit thin but the year is still young and there are very strong hints of more - the next in the XTC and J Tull series, the KC 80's stuff finally (box set and individual?), maybe the Roxy Music?

I think I'll end up happier than my wallet by the end of the year.

Don't forget about the strong possibility of "The Seeds of Love" by Tears for Fears, and you're right. The year is definitely still young, so maybe "Tales from Topographic Oceans" could still make an appearance by the end of the year.
Other than all of that, another surprise from Gentle Giant would most certainly be welcome. :)

Thanks, folks! As of today, this list boasts 52 albums in one surround format or another. Eight more months to go ;-)

Thanks for keeping this updated because... well, there have been so many that I'm starting to lose track! The downside: the choices that are obvious for my tastes are causing me to forego titles I might have tried if there weren't so many from which to choose. It's a double-edged sword for certain.
