    How is the DCC Gold Disc of "Empire" compared to the mass-market release? Is there a significant increase in sound quality?

    Sorry that I am not answering your question, but I have a related one of my own: have you been able to find a copy of the DCC Empire?
    Digital Compact Classics is no longer fulfilling orders via their Website (even though http://www.dcccompactclassics.com is still up for information purposes as of this typing, their e-tail partner's site does not load when you attempt to process your shopping cart). They were also not answering their phone when I tried calling just before Christmas or today when I tried again.
    Based upon my (and perhaps your?) positive experience with the DCC product in the past, I would recommend that you go ahead and purchase a copy of the DCC Empire if you find it on a shelf somewhere. Not unlike MoFi's Ultradiscs's prior to MusicDirect (http://www.amusicdirect.com) picking up the torch, the only way you can get DCC gold discs right now is to serendipitously find them on the shelves of stores that once stocked them where they did not sell already.
    Of course, all this begs the question: has anyone heard of a possible DVD-A release of Empire?
    Cheers,

    Philip,
    YES! Grab one while you can! Try elusivedisc.com or some of the other audiophile channels.
    DCC is essentially OOB, so grab them while you can!
    Now where's the friggin remaster of Mindcrime!!! [​IMG]

    Well, it's remarkable what a few months time can do. To comment on two issues in my own post above:
    Here's the kicker: as I say here http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htfo...threadid=7671, Capitol has announced a DVD-A release of Empire. "Would you like to know more?" No release date to my knowledge as of this typing. E-mail if you wish and I'll reply when I hear of a date.
    Cheers,
    Paul

    I hope the DVD-A has a high resolution native stereo soundtrack.

    Not really a Queensryche thread anymore but . . .
    Of course, the Nick Of Time release Micahel C mentions in his thread #5 above never happened.
    But according to Bill Hunt's 2:30 p.m. Bits post last Friday the 10th, Nick is now skedded for April 22 and Capitol/EMI's Pet Sounds is skedded for May 20. So, only a year's delay or so . . . [​IMG]
    Anyone else find it kinda ironic that Bill is now mildly tubthumping for SACD and DVD-A since his fave acts (The Police, Peter Gabriel) are seeing releases, despite his having often poo-poo'd the formats in the past? (And whatever happened to Bits' "audio guru" Frank Ortiz, who was introduced at the site as the one who would be covering all things audio . . . and then disappeared?)

    "Dude" . . . Not sure what your post is supposed to mean (Bill gets a pass?), but it's probably a subject for another thread . . . or e-mail . . . ? [​IMG]

    Anyone have comparative sound quality comments on the DCC Empire versus the DVD-A?
