TIM: “Should your section read as Larry Fast / Synergy or do you prefer Synergy / Larry Fast or something else?”

LARRY: “Hope your medical issues are coming along well. Sorry to hear that you've had to go through anything. The best titling for me would be Larry Fast/Synergy as used for much of the current branding. I can speak from experience about quad production in the past and 5.1 and beyond in the studio now. But, I want to hear back from forum members about their preferred formats, codecs, disc formats and general experiences. I can learn a lot which will make the releases better. Thanks.”

Hey Larry! Here is one vote for lossless Blu-ray audio as a distribution format. Also, 4.1 is better for my system than 4.0 as I use my LFE for the low frequencies.

Blu-ray is best imo but I can currently play all formats. I'm very happy with quad but 5.0 or 5.1 are cool.

What I most appreciate is an agressive artistic surround mix that gives all channels equal value - instead of a front-heavy presentation.
