    Just wondering if I've chosen wisely or should cancel my order now. It looks really cool.
    I'd like the movie too but it's non-anamorphic, despite what some reviews say. [​IMG]

    If you are a Doors fan it should make you happy. A lot of nice stuff.
    I am a bit disappointed with the audio.
    It is DD 2.0 192kbps Dolby Pro Logic encoded. Lacking the dynamics that a PCM track would have provided.

    Doors fan? Have you seen the Bright Midnight collection then? As Larry Wild Man Fischer would say, http://www.thedoors.com/gamma/bmr/index.html [​IMG] [​IMG]
    The above link is for Bright Midnight, the outfit responsible for the Doors cds. Somehow, they're affiliated with Rhino Handmade, but the actual Rhino Handmade site is here.

    Ben,

    Thanks for that link. I didn't know about these releases and I think I am going to pick up that Detroit show pretty soon. These CDs look great!

    Larry,
    I have the Sony TA-E9000ES pre/pro set to auto format decode mode.
    The display shows Dolby Digital 2.0 192kbps Dolby Pro Logic.
    I have listened in stereo also.
    I would prefer 1536 kbps PCM over 192 kbps Dolby Digital any day.

    I have the box set as well and I do like it a lot. I am also a bit disapointed in the audio...I was hoping for more. I also don't exactly what this is, but on a few songs of the eponymous album, there is some sort of crackling noise in the high end...you guys probably know what im talking about...it did this on the standard CD release too...what is that noise?

    -but don't let that keep you from getting it. I was playing that disc today and I love the music...
