I've had these DTS Surround disks a long time and hadn't listened to them in years. This thread just got me to dig them out and have another listen. I wasn't aware that they were actually 2 channel CD's magically expanded to discrete multichannel. But now it's easy to hear the 44.1 / 16 bit effect. AP's mixes twirl them in a nice fashion and I was impressed in the beginning but now I think I'll be fine just going on without them :cool: I used to like playing the DTS of Sting's Fields of Gold too. I'd like to get my hands on a DSD version of that.

Thanks for your thoughts.
Plenty of good sounding DTS CDs with amazing mixes that can't be found in any other format but I do agree that even compared to DTS DVDs at a maximum bitrate, they are lesser sound quality. Sting solo stuff does nothing for me in any format.

I need to revisit this one, but I remember liking it a lot - and a lot more than A Valid Path, which had a really strong (and for me, distasteful) flavour of "old people trying to make young people's music" to it.
