My memory of various Scheiner surround mixes is that he places instruments fairly discreetly around the five channels. Is that the case with his In Absentia surround mix?
Scheiner's In Absentia is a surround tour-de-force. The rears are highly active with rhythm guitars (acoustic and electric), backing vocals, sound effects, strings, and percussion. There's even a bit of motion in the surround field on occasion, such as the middle section of "Trains" where the handclaps slowly move around the room in a circle. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Like many others here. I am waiting to hear the consensus before I splurge on this.
Having already purchased the DVDA, CD, and LP, there will need to be some fairly significant improvement to get my attention.
My thoughts are similar. I have this album in many formats already. However, Porcupine Tree are one of my favorite bands, and In Absentia is one of my favorite albums. I'm somewhat enticed by the documentary and the book, but the cost is very high... So I'm kind of on the fence. What's the best price including shipping to Canada?

Just had an e-mail from Burning Shed, my Deluxe Edition Boxset is in the post:)
I am SO fighting the urge to re-order this. I got paranoid of postal damage and canceled my Shed order. Now, I see Import has it for even less money...and they have always sent stuff in nice packaging. Ughhhhhhhhhh

Seeing reports at SH.tv that the CD 2 tracks are missing from the Blu-ray. For those who haven't ordered, I'd recommend waiting until this is addressed by the powers-that-be.
Which CD 2 tracks are missing, all of them? I don't see the CD2's tracks 5 through 9 on the Blu-ray's tracklist, so those shouldn't be expected.

The official listing suggests they should all be there:
The Blu-ray features the new master of the original stereo mix, the 5.1 surround sound mix created in 2003 by legendary engineer Elliot Scheiner, plus the audio from the second CD, all in high resolution audio.

Why not take the current disc then flog it when it gets corrected? They certainly don't seem to be on here.
