is the 2003 SACD version the CS ( USA ) version or the Austrian authored COL version ?
from what i can gather, it seems like its an entirely new version with the 5.1 based on the Scheiner 5.1 Blu-ray from the All in All Box Set (with a couple of tracks having extended versions) plus a new Stereo SACD Elliot Scheiner mastering and some other brickwalled mastering on the Redbook CD layer.

@fredblue OK I hope this is info that will help you Adam.
2003 5.1 SACD vs 2022 5.1 SACD

2003 Track 1 5:33 DR14-------2022 Track 1 5:32 DR14
Track 2 3:47 DR14------- Track 2 4:24 DR14
Track 3 4:55 DR15------- Track 3 4:53 DR15
Track 4 3:23 DR13------- Track 4 3:17 DR14
Track 5 3:07 DR15------- Track 5 3:04 DR14
Track 6 3:51 DR13------- Track 6 4:51 DR14
Track 7 4:27 DR13------- Track 7 4:32 DR13
Track 8 3:57 DR14------- Track 8 4:08 DR15
Track 9 4:13 DR16------- Track 9 4:11 DR16
Trac 10 4:57 DR15------- Trac 10 4:55 DR15
I have no speculation or experience as to why the slight differences.
I can say I really like the new version, seems softer for lack of a better word.
thank you for the analysis and info! 🤗💘

Never was a Toto fan--but I'm not here to crap on the thread, I promise! Rather:

30 years last Friday since Jeff Porcaro died. This link was posted at the Dandom FB group. (Of course Dan fans would probably add pretty much the rest of Katy Lied, for starters, not just "Bad Sneakers". . . .) I haven't tallied how many of these tracks are available in surround.

...Packaging is nice, if not a bit excessive. I mean, I really don't care for all the extra stuff...

I'm just the opposite, I love all the extra stuff, the more the better.
I feel a bit let down by something like the Herbie Hancock Headhunters, with no extras.

The professor's link is an excellent corollary to the included Session List booklet.
I'm another buyer who was never a big fan, as Toto saturated FM radio airplay.

But I was reminded of the coverage in the music press at the time about how the band formed like a new version of the early supergroups.
Recruited from A-list first-call LA studio musicians, not ex-members of bands like Buffalo Springfield, The Byrds, etc.

Here is the S page, with Boz Scaggs & Steely Dan:

As for keeping all the extras together in the mini-LP packaging, I use these over-sized 3 mil "Made in USA" poly sleeves.
Happy to report they fit even the over-sized Santana Lotus double album.

Jeff's session works also captured on 2 Japanese tribute CDs. They're still in print at cdjapan

Not to take this thread sideways, but with all this talk of MQA, is any special hardware needed for MQA?
Thanks 🤔

Yes. If streaming ( Tidal and others ) you need an MQA enabled DAC. Tp play MQA CDs you need a MQA enabled CD player. I suggest you dive into this website to learn more. There is some equipment on the market that can play both mediums

Wow, it shocked me that he was only 38 years old. Such a talent.

Thank you for the link.
Looks like Oppo UDP 203 does not support it…and I am not that adventurous 🫤

Supply chain issues, what supply chain issues? Ordered mine several days ago and it’s already here. First listen tonight: sound is very good! Wasn’t a big Toto fan but looking forward to getting to know this.
