Elliot Scheiner is a genius. I LOVE how he uses the rear phantom center, right behind your head! Gives me goosebumps!
Sorry for responding to a 14-year-old post, but I just auditioned a new speaker set with this disc and had the exact same thought. Both this one and In Absentia have a lot of rear center-panned information that gives an amazing holographic effect if you're sitting in just the right spot. Check out the clapping effect that fades from "Trains" into "Lips Of Ashes", or the distorted guitar solo towards the end of "Mellotron Scratch" - it's like they're literally right behind your head.

How's the mastering on the surround mix? Is it compressed like In Absentia?

I like PT's music and have most of them (surround only of course) but can never seem to find Deadwing for a reasonable price. Some ebay dealer in NY just put a few of the book/cd/dvdv versions up for sale and I got one for $25. Seems reasonable to me. Would rather have the dvda but I don't have a problem with dts discs and this one is 24/48 which is the same as many dvd audio discs I have. I am wondering what the original price of this book version was when it was first released.

I looked at my past credit card records and found a June '05 purchase from PT's site for $36.00. I'm reasonably sure that was for Deadwing, and this was about seven years before I even had the capacity to play the 5.1. I guess I was looking ahead. The version I have is a 5 1/2" square book with CD and DVD. I'd say you paid a fair price. (y)

Thanks for the reply! I've looked for the dvda for a long time. It just seems like it aint going to happen, so I bought this. Some people have said they like the dvdv better because it has more bass but the dvda is clearer. I'm really looking forward to hearing the surround on this one. A review on the dts option from dvda disc said it was incredible. I guess the surround track on the dvdv is the same dts option from the dvda disc.

I also remember buying all the PT related surround discs prior to even have the ability to play them.

I remember listening to the stereo version from the DVD via my basic DVD player and being wowed by the superior fidelity compared to the CD. And now look at what we're listening to!
