| I took a look, and my first impression was why would one do 5.1 surround for a string quartet? |
While the .1 isn't strictly necessary for a string quartet, 5.0 or 4.0 can recreate the acoustic space far more accurately than a two-channel recording can.
And Lance said earlier:
| This label doesn't use any lossy compressed formats on their dvd-audios (at least from what their website doesn't say). |
Surrounded By does include a DD track, and I think one or two DTS tracks have been provided as well.
