It does seem a touch high, with the experience editions a touch over $100 and the same for the 5.1 of Animals. Unfortunately my SACD player is on its last leg. I would pay that for the Wall if it included live performances and a 4K of the film, but I don’t know. $200 and I would bite, but I would imagine none but the very serious would. Would be nice to get the Atmos release with live album without all the stuffing.

Oof, this is such a tough decision. As an owner of the three previous Immersion sets (which I love), $300 is a big ask for the remastering by James Guthrie (whose work I do greatly respect) on both the stereo disc and LP (I already own all my favorite Floyd albums on recently pressed vinyl). I do love the 5.1 Blu-Ray of the Immersion set and would love to hear the Atmos mix on my 7.2.4 system but...$300.

I'll keep an eye out on comparisons between the Guthrie and Plante (who did the Immersion set) remixes. If people say Guthrie's work is superior, then I may bite the bullet on this.

Also, guess I should start putting away $300 for 2025 and another $300 for 2029 :rolling-smiley:

Yes I would say DSOTM is maybe the most re-issued album in music history.

I struck out an incorrect line as it seems Guthrie also did the Immersion remaster. So the question is: is this a new remaster, and if so, is it an audible improvement from the one he did for the immersion box set?

So that question, in addition to how much audible improvement the extra Atmos overhead channels make over the Immersion 5.1 set, will determine if I'm going to shell out another $300 to the band. I forgot I also have the SACD which sounds marvelous.

I may just wait until reviews come out and risk it selling out before I end up buying it. I think between the Immersion set, the SACD, and the recent Guthrie vinyl I own, it won't be the end of the world if I miss out on the Atmos version on the 50th...

You can buy a Sony X700 4K UHD player that also plays SACDs and DVD Audio discs for $200, which is less than the cost of this set.

A quick word about the long-running feud between Waters and Gilmour- just sad. Eddie Trunk has said on his talk show that there’s an offer for those guys to sell their songs/publishing for half a billion dollars, and they can’t/won’t agree on terms. I guess they’re going to take this bitterness with each other to their grave.

Waters could sell "The Wall" which, as I recall, he largely owns the rights to for the songs (except for "Comfortably Numb" and "Run Like Hell") now it wouldn't be worth that much but, if he really wants the cash, he could easily part with one of the biggest Floyd albums in terms of sales.

Apparently Waters has re-recorded DSOTM for a new anniversary release. Can't say I fancy it!
Have they said that the re-recording is going to be used on this release? Personally, I'd rather burn $300 and mail the ashes to Waters than spend it on a re-recording from that asshole but I can't imagine that this is going to use a re-recording without warning people.

No, this would be completely separate, the box is legacy stuff from PF. Waters famously thought he was splitting up PF, instead of just leaving it!

Waters is interviewed in today's Daily Telegraph, nice man!
Eddie Trunk talked about that for a few minutes on his show today. Zero interest in his version of Dark Side, and I wish he would just stop with the dart throwing at the other members. I think he and David are making asses of themselves with this stuff- he and the other guys have made a great living off of what they created back in the 70s- just let it go, and move on. Sheesh. 🙄
