The Digital Bits has the following news that MANY of us having been waiting for:
This has been covered already...
I'm glad they decided to use a straight-foward digital format. And I hope they include a DTS track on the disc, maybe even their new 96/24 version . That would be awesome.
I wish they would release some Alan Parsons stuff on dvd-audio, especially I, Robot.

Sweet...I must have missed the earlier announcement of this title. DVD-A is fast becoming the place to go if you want decent rock music in Hi-res (Stones aside).
DSOTM on DVDA is a great thing to come. One question: With all the later titles of Pink Floyd (WYWH. A, TW) on CBS/Sony, will all the later titles come out on SACD instead of DVD-A, or does Pink Floyd, Inc. have total control?
Anthony, a few years ago EMI acquired the rights to those albums from CBS/Sony. CBS/Sony only had the U.S. rights, EMI has always had the rights outside the U.S., now they have worldwide rights.
EMI is the owner and has most recently released rock titles on both DVDA and SACD at the same time.
It may also be released on SACD. EMI is very supportive of the format.
DSOTM is the grand daddy of all Surround Sound albums so this DVDA should be a treat. This gives DVDA a real shot in the arm. I also agree that DVDA is the place for Rock titles so far. I've rarely been disappointed with a Rock DVDA. It would be interesting to compare DSOTM between both formats. Hope this title is the one where that happens.
Lance, O.K. Got it. I'm not sure I agree with you regarding PCM being more straightforward, but that's O.K.
Sorry, but this in not quite true. It depends on the sub-label. To date the only EMI titles appearing on both SACD and DVD-A are EMI/Virgin titles. Even then not all are released under both formats . All EMI/Capitol releases are DVD-A only. Pink Floyd, like the upcoming The Band: Music From Big Pink due Jan 7th will be under the EMI/Capitol banner and will be DVD-A only, just like the following. Crowded House: Crowded House Dave Koz: The Dance Eric Johnson: Ah Via Musicom Richard Thompson: Rumour And Sigh Queensryche: Empire
Maybe EMI will soon put out the long rumored Beach Boys disc (on the Capitol label) in DVD-A as well with their output apparently increasing. J
