This is exactly like me, are you me? :mad:@:

Own the LP and CD, 1st DVD-A curious about 5.1 surround ! Took the plunge never looked back.
My thoughts exactly when reading that first reply.

Oops, after skimming the thread, I realized I made basically this same comment in 2008. Damn being over 50 and having CRP (Can't Remember Poop).

I have the 2002 DVD-A. My first DVD-A bought it on a lark, since I loved the album and wanted to find out what surround music was all about after setting up my first home theater. Thank whoever insisted on requiring a Dolby Digital version for those stuck with standard DVD players, otherwise I might never have discovered surround music.

I've created the seemingly ideal lossless version, by ripping both discs and splicing the "true" 5.1 mix of GSTQ to the end of the DVD-A mix. Whilst this true BD mix of GSTQ is limited, it still sounds better than the up-mix version. I had to level correct it by -3dB to match the DVD-A, but it slots in perfectly.

I left Prophet's Song as-is, as I don't believe they ever found the discrete elements for the "now I know" section. To my ears it remains an up-mix on the BD. I also fixed the out-of-sync LFE channel.

Yep, I did the same awhile back.
