Just my first impressions... excellent surround mix and fidelity. But... musically, I don’t know .... this very much sounds like more of a musical than a rock opera; in other words, it feels like the story and lyrics were more important than the music. Every time it feels like a musical groove should start, characters start singing again. There are a few songs that really rock, though, and I’m happy about that.
Hmmm - I’ve never been a fan of too much singing that prevents a band’s other instruments from getting in a groove. Good feedback!

I received my book copy yesterday. I just love Arjen, I think of him as such a great artist, he uses so much media and always is changing and inventing.
I love getting books with a story that you can follow along while listening and watching. This animated/comic book style reminds me of Rush 2112. The story of two lovers with a tragic death and how they come together, one a ghost, the other a human. I have only got as far as what is called CD1, but can't wait to continue.
The music, visuals, and sound quality is great.
I have to always give a shout out to Jan Bakker for turning me on to Ayreon, loved them all, I highly recommend purchasing with the video content, adds so much more to the experience.
Dank Je! (Thank You in Dutch, I hope)

Received the earbook version of "Transitus" today. I first put on the dvd to listen to the 5.1 mix. Unfortnately it seems to be a problem with the dvd disc (at least in my package). The disc freezes after the song "This Human Equation". Let's see if anyone else will get this problem when they are receiving their sets.
Same problem. Also using an Oppo.

I ordered the 4 CD + 1 DVD edition through Amazon. The package arrived yesterday. The DVD has the same problem that other users reported. It was working great up to "This Human Equation" after it the DVD stopped. (I was playing the DVD on a sony unit). I tried on my Xbox but I was not able to reproduce the 5.1 mix. Then I tried to play it on My PC with no success :mad:. I have decided to return the product I. already get a refund. End of the problem.

I thought I would write an update on my experience with the surround disc. The first time played it in my Sony there were some problems so I put it in the Oppo where it was even worse freezing and skipping, I examined the disc and could see a mark on it similar to what I had seen described elsewhere (Facebook) I then cleaned the disc with a spectacles wipe and tried it again in the Sony, it has played through without a problem several times now. last night I tried it in the Oppo where again it played right through with no problems. I did report to Mascot and got a reply stating that they where looking into the the problems. So at the moment I'm happy that it has played OK in both my Blu-rays, and I await Mascots findings.
