    Do not offer for free, offer for sale, offer for trade, or request copies or files of copyrighted material - no matter how rare or unavailable to the public they might be. We do not condone the illegal sharing of music. There are many places on the internet where you can participate in such transactions, but QuadraphonicQuad is not one of them. 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. Any posts of this sort will be deleted without notification.

    Please try to avoid discussions that pit one format against another. Hint for new users: make liberal use of the search facilities here at QuadraphonicQuad. Our message base is an incredibly rich resource of detailed information on virtually all topics pertaining to surround-sound. You will be surprised at what you can find with a little digging!

These are the approximate figures you can expect to see for non MLP encoded assets.
For me, the really surprising one is that you can use 20/96 in 5.0 configuration without the MLP encoding! Albeit right on the limits.

Another often overlooked benefit of MLP encoding is that not only will it allow better data rates, but it also reduces filesizes at up to 55% savings.
Completely lossless.

If there is any interest, I will post a similar table for MLP encoded assets too.
PM me, and if I get enough I will make the table.

PS - Sorry for the scrappy appearance, but I really am bad at this sort of thing!
