What a great disk. Really a lute concerto disk with a killer filler of the Concierto.
It is, great performance, and I think I got it for about a £1 or 2 in a DV sale some years ago!

I am curious? Why would someone downmix a 5.1 to a 2.0? If a person owned the Blu Ray of Electric Ladyland why wouldn't they just listen to either the 24/96 of the 5.1 or the 24/96 of the 2.0?
Do these people like the BD-A but they don't like RBCD (Disc1)?
Prior to the box set being released my favorite RBCD version was the 4/10/2013 Japanese Blu-Spec CD2.
Sorry for all the questions but what you said had me wondering.

Are you sure the 2.0 is not really Dolby Surround for backward compatibility?

Most DVDs have Dolby Surround as the default when a player's stereo output is used.
