    Hey everybody!

    A few weeks ago, I finally upgraded to a PS DVD player that also happens to play DVD-A. I'm looking to try out DVD-A, but my pre/pro doesn't have 5.1 inputs. So what I'm looking to find out is which DVD-A titles have the best 2 channel recordings on them? Are there any that have something other than a downconverted stereo mix? Any info would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Jacinto,

    The vast majority of WB titles contain dedicated stereo mixes -- some of them are 24/192K. We will see more 24/192K from WB titles, as the consoles are now in place at their favorite mastering locations.

    AIX includes stereo tracks on their discs.

    Suggestions off the top of my head:
    The Eagles "Hotel California" (24/192K stereo)
    The Hammamura Quintet Re`Told (Import order form Audionet.de) has some great stereo 24/192K tracks
    The Doobie Bros "The Captain and Me" (24/192K stereo)

    There are undoubtedly others, but this is a nice list for starters.

    Regards,

    Stay away from Silverline, everything they release is multi-channel.
