We are here to encourage and support new multichannel releases from those companies that still provide them and as such the distribution of illegal copies of recordings is counter-productive to that effort.

I suppose you could say his discs are a natural type surround , like "Blumlein " or "Haas " effect . Stretching the limits of stereo micking to present a surround matrix , with some wicked panning to boot.

Matrix quad before it's time. :smokin

Actually, seilerbird, Fantasia was released in Fantasound which was acknowledged as the first Stereo film ever released [this, according to Wikipedia]: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fantasound

I always thought it was surround.
It was...in the sense that two channels of sound (later three) were moved around manually (by pan-potting) among 5 or later as many as 54 loudspeakers.
