I was so enamored with the Puschnig/Swallow/Alias/Lewis DTS RBCD of Grey that I ordered this one as well:

How do you like it, Ralph? The description makes it sound a little out there. I got the third Muthspiel disc on Quinton, by the way--Continental Call (actually listed under "Concert Jazz Orchestra Vienna;" and the music, an hourlong "concerto for guitar and jazz orchestra," is composed by Ed Partyka)--and I really like it.

I didn't receive the CHANTS DTS RBCD, yet. It was just shipped out. Continental Call sounds interesting. Too bad it's not DTS. The sonics on GREY are excellent.

D'oh! I mistakenly linked to the wrong version of Continental Call: there actually is a DTS-CD version.

That said: so far I've only heard the RBCD version. (The Amazon seller from whom I ordered the DTS-CD sent me the Red Book by mistake, then refunded my money, then doubled the price on their remaining [alleged] copies of the DTS-CD...so now I have a copy on order from JPC instead.)

I just received a fabulous DTS CD entitled Aurora by Australian Garry Havillray - a fabulous mix of electronic and ambient textures that I really enjoy. It took a while to get to Canada from Australia but the wait was worth it. For those interested, it can be ordered via Havillray’s bandcamp site at https://havrillay.bandcamp.com/album/aurora

I listened to the sample track "Atrophy" and liked it. I might order a copy. Thanks for the link!

I've had the DVD-A for some time, but when the DTS-CD popped up for under $20 I couldn't resist. In some ways, this mix is actually more discrete than the SACD/DVD-A version - to the point where the rear channels are left almost empty when they didn't have to be. For instance, during "Babylon Sisters" on the DVD-A, there's a subtle rhythm guitar part in the rear channels, while on the DTS-CD it's in the front right channel and the rears are nearly silent.

The other thing that's interesting about the DTS-CD is that the rear channels contain no trace of the drum kit, which makes listening to them isolated really interesting.

I'm glad to have both versions - it's nice to be able to just pop this disc in the Acura and not have to deal with any encoding or disc creation.

Hope you'll excuse the self-promotion, but it's on-topic.
Ordered this immediately, the previous title was so good... Looking forward to it very much!
