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.

SQ10 hated it, but you seemed to like it. Check out the thread link below

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.

This is the only DTS CD I have and one of my earliest surround purchases. I didn't realize it might be a CD until I watched the Life in Surround episode about AP. I recently bought the the SONY X800-M2 which confirmed it. I have always enjoyed this album, In fiat I think I like AP post project work more than his work with Wolfson. Listening to it today I still found the surround mix to be very good and was stunned that it was only a s CD. I like the song a lot, It's in my bailiwick as an aerospace enthusiast. My only complaint would be that the 44.1/16 Audi sounds a bit clipped and shrill at times and that it came a ginormous jewel box that slipped out of my hands one day and bounced down the stairs ahead of me. I give it an 8.
