    Given that its Audio Asylum, we must be very careful. Still, it makes some sense. James Guthrie has said he would like to release more Pink Floyd, he was the engineer on The Wall, and The Wall has a 25th anniversary next year...

    What do you think?

    I would just love to see this. By the way, I saw the Roger Waters concert on DVD on my brother's new plasma TV and it was quite good. It covered a variety of Pink Floyd and Waters solo tunes plus a decent quality transfer. Recommended. [​IMG]

    I sincerely HOPE this happens. You just know they'll do something to go along with the 25th anniversery of this classic. However, I won't get too excited until we have more than a post on a message board.

    Not my favorite PF album but I can assume it will have a killer 5.1 surround mix. I'm waiting for either "Animals" or
    "Wish You Were Here" to get the SACD treatment. I do not understand why Sony has released either of these PF albums in SACD upon the format's introduction years ago. I have the SBM gold Sony Mastersound CD of "Wish You Were Here" and even that sounds fantastic as regular RedBook CD audio.

    My vote's in for WYWH, but I'd still be all over The Wall!

    "The Wall" would be a must-buy on SACD. Also, I know it gets no respect, but I would love to get "The Final Cut" in multi-channel. Listen to that one in headphones - there is some seriously cool stuff going on.

    Heck, just do the entire PF catalog. I'll buy 'em all!

    Thanks for that clarification Jimmy. I was thinking I had something FUBAR, but was not sure what.

    I really need to dig out the vinyl!

    No doubt that Waters albums are ideal for surround sound. [​IMG]

    Since we got DSOTM released on SACD this year, can "Meddle" be far behind? Just wishful thinking on my part. We also saw the release of the Pink Floyd At Pompeii on DVD, so where is
    "Delicate Sound of Thunder" on SACD or DVD for that matter?

    Not to rain on anybody's parade here but according to Cduniverse.com until The Final Cut comes along, all Pink Floyd albums are on the Capitol/EMI label. While I realize EMI has issued some classical sacd's & of course the DSOTM sacd (supposedly with Sony's financial help) they also have put out some classical dvd-audios.

    And AFAIK Capitol itself has so far only issued titles on the dvd-audio format.

    And EMI's commitment to dvd-audio was made stonger when they made that deal with DTS Entertainment a few months ago, to help them put together a series of dvd-audios featuring premium artists & albums.

    If I'm not mistaken, Pink Floyd has also worked with film & I would love to see their visual efforts as bonus material on a dvd-audio disc.
