The only 'strange' issue I think about occasionally with the polls relates to the distinction between an audio and an audio/visual release, which is now tangled.

If a bluray with only audio on it is in 24 bit / 48 kHz / 5.1 then it can be in the main chart; but not if it is has a video attached. Seems to me they could be combined with the distinction really being quality:

- 'High Res' minimum 24 bit; 44.1kHz; 4.0; lossless (LPCM, TrueHD, DTS HD-MA etc)
- 'Standard Res' minimum 16 bit; 44.1kHz; 4.0; lossless (LPCM, TrueHD, DTS HD-MA etc)
- 'Low Res' minimum 44.1kHz; 4.0 (DTS; DTS-CD; Dolby AC3 etc)

I'm probably coming from this far too much from a digital-era-audio-nut perspective. The audio track - which is most of what I am interested in at best - does not matter to me if it has a video.

That given; I'm thinking this would be a nightmare to set up and probably not worth it lol

Thanks for the update!

The distinction on the hires poll is lossless (vs lossy on the Audio DVD poll - DTS or Dolby Digital) at the moment.

The music video poll is if the release is primarily video. If a BD has only a couple of music vids but has an audio only album it considered HiRes Audio and goes on the Hi Res poll.

Are the Booka Shade Blu Ray's on the poll?

I just did a search and didn't come up with anything. The new Dear Future Self album on Blu Ray (ATMOS) is off the hook good.

I just regenerated all QQ Surround Poll Reports and submitted to QQ web admin for uploading onto the server.

New polls generated today should go live within next 24 hrs. As usual, you may have the Refresh the Poll Report web page so view updated info.

No surprises for what's on top of the HiRes Poll.

I’ve generated new Polls for December and at the request of @steelydave modified the HTML pages for Quad and MCH Engineers lists to widen the tables (better readability and less line wrapping). While making the engineer report mods I also made similar changes to the Poll tables.

You should see these live in next couple of days.

December Poll updates now live (Refresh the page in your browser).

The Engineers listings now have new wider format but no additional data. I'm hoping to get an update from Dave before Christmas.
I'm surprised Bob Clearmountain isn't in there more; how about on this one- did I miss it :unsure: ?

You are welcome to do some data entry Pup :)

SteelyDave has been updating the Quad Engineers list with significant additions, fixes.

No one is currently updating the MCH Engineers list after FredBlue ceased updates a couple years ago.

All you need is Excel. The two master engineer lists are in Excel, one file for each list.

How indeed! (You musta been drinkin' earlier in the year when it was getting so much chatter...)

Run, don't walk, to procure yourself a copy. Contender for best disc of the year.

Oh, you misunderstand Dear Sir, I got a signed copy from the get go, one of the best for sure. Just didn't see Bob's name in the Engineer's listings - is it in there?
