    Just picked up the CD/DVD combo of their new album and surprise surprise it is a dvd audio disc. 5.1 mix in 96/24 sound. I havn't listened to it enough to comment on the disc as a whole but there are a few catchy songs so far and the 5.1 mix is tame but not bad. They should do this with all cd's! The only problem I have is it doesnt fit in with my other dvd-a discs since it is regular cd size box!

    I mentioned this in a post last week, though there wasn't any follow-up discussion. I too am pleased to find the DVDA disc included... I'd love to see this happen more oftern. I paid ~$20 for the redbook CD and DVDA pair, and it's well worth it to me.

    For those who don't know, the DVDA contains the whole album, plus a couple additional tracks, AND 11 acoustic recordings (I think these are in DD though).

    Does it say on the outside labeling that there is a dvd AUDIO disc inside? Or just a "dvd"? Does the dvd-audio have a Dolby or DTS track?

    Thanks.

    I too picked this up on Tuesday. I noted that in the Postcard track, the mix is somewhat agressive (moreso than the other songs) and I really like it.

    Better yet, I picked it up for 12.99 at my local Media Play (same price as the single cd) I think it was mispriced, but the add in Sunday's paper had it advertised as such. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I picked this up at my local Media Play as well same price as the stand alone CD. It is also advertised on their website. They had a sign advertising it on the rack and the combo is in a digipack (labled limited edition) compared to the standard jewel case for the stand alone CD.

    What a deal! If the music industry puts out packages like this and hybrid SACD's I will gladly purchase music at the levels I used to as a teenager. I feel like I am getting two albums for one.

    I bought it a BestBuy ($20, singe CD was $10). I had to go into the shelves for the DVDA/CD discs, but it was with the CDs not the DVDA discs. They had the $10 CD out on the new releases display. I've only really had a chance to listen to the CD (in the car) so far, and not the DVDA. It sounds great from the little bit I've heard.

    If you don't have a MediaPlay nearby (none in the DC area), Target has it for $16 this week.

    The disc is called Everything for Everyone, released this Tuesday.
    Several of the songs are very pleasant to listen to.

    Does anyone know what the current best price for this is?
    So far I've only found DDCD for $18.24, which is reasonable, but not as good as some of you have found *jealous*. Unfortunately that it looks like that are currently out of stock since it says "Usually ships within 10 days," and I'd like to get it sooner than 10+shipping, and cheaper if possible.

    Thanks,
    -- Dave
