I canceled my previous order Deluxe Set on Amazon, and re-ordered same Deluxe and Amazon says arrives April 8th.
That has happened before, rare, like my first order gut stuck in some internet wiring, but now free.

My copy arrived yesterday. I have the Blu Ray playing now 5.1 DTS HD Mstr.
Definitely a different mix than previous Arjen I have heard.
When the disc starts, my impression was a little something missing, then I noticed the center channel was not in use.
The center is used very sparingly, in fact when vocals come in, that is when you expect to hear a large presence of center speaker, it's the opposite. The center seems very quiet for vocals and used sparingly for guitar parts.
I tried the other 5.1 version, was the same.
Great book of pictures and words, great menu very easy to navigate. Lots of different ways to watch and listen all discs combined.
You have to get your brain to be in a primarily 4.0 listening set up.

EDIT: I should have said 4.1 as the LFE is very strong on this release. I am just used to typing 4.0.
