    Sounds interesting. Speaking of A Night At The Opera, anyone have the DCC gold CD release? Just wondering how it is versus the standard release.

    I haven't heard the MFSL, but the DCC *obliterates* the standard Hollywood CD. Plus, it actually reproduces the original embossed LP cover on the booklet, which is a little touch but infinitely cool. [​IMG]
    Since I tend to like the "Steve Hoffman sound," I doubt I'd like the MFSL better, but who knows.
    The stereo DVD-A track might threaten the DCC, but it's not at all certain since the talent of the remastering engineer and the quality of the tapes used would play a big part. If the stereo track is playable on DVD-V players (as was originally the case before the re-do and delay) I might pick it up to compare, but I'm really happy with the DCC.
    Interesting that the article never mentions DVD-A, only DTS.

    The DTS DVD-A street date for "A Night At The Opera" is definite: They're advertising it as such on the back cover of the latest "Widescreen Review" issue with the "Training Day" Denzel Washington front cover photo.[​IMG]
    The specs also include a DVD-Video layer with the original stereo mix in 96k/24-bit pcm, playable on all standalone and DVD-ROM hardware![​IMG]

    It's pretty cool when Roy Thomas Baker says he'd like to do The Cars debut album in 5.1. That would sound good.
    Great to see a legendary producer getting in the 5.1 groove!
