I was browsing one of my sites I find things at and noticed someone decided to remux the famed Supertramp Crime of the Century album into a DVD A MLP 5.1 mix. Granted he was quite straight in letting everyone one know that this was done from a stereo recording and he goes on to explain the equipment and process he uses to turn this into a 5.1 recording at 24/96.

I decided to take the 15 plus hours to obtain this and hear what this would sound like I was able to finally burn it onto a dvd. I plopped it into my dvda player and wow was I impressed. Granted its not remastered in the way studios do these but in all honesty it is pretty darn good. Nice and clean with good surround. I had to bring down the surrounds a bit as it tended to be a little hot. But there was good surround from left to right in the rear not to mention front to back. Vocals were placed in the center for the most part.

There was very good discreet surround taking place and the overall sonic value was tasteful. So if you are a Supertramp fan and you want to get a hold of this then poke your head around the web, its out there.

Supertramp is one of those bands I always thought would sound great in hirez 5.1 - great shame there has been no back catalog treatment.

Certainty and conviction are a sure sign you don't know what you're talking about! The world is not black and white, rather shades of grey!

Please, please, me too! I've had this recording on 8-track (really), cassette, Mobile Fidelity Master Recording vinyl and MFMR CD. If it comes out on anything in the future, I'll have that too!

Have no idea, but would suspect it would be a very expensive venture. Something I have no knowledge of. If it was easy and in-expensive we wouldn't be held captive by the companies on what we as far as SACD's/DVD-A's go.

Thanks to The_Nephilim1 for the PM/link. It took nearly two days to download and I attempted to burn to DVD. Record Now opened up and prompted me to rip it to DVD which I did, but it won't play. I also tried dvd decrypter but couldn't get it to work. What are the steps needed to burn this file?

Thanks!

I down loaded iso-burner and iso-burned two more coasters. I get to 90% and it says burn error. Are there specific settings to use? Sorry, but I'm totally new to this kind of thing, I just want to hear Supertramp in 5.1.

Thanks for the tip Scooterdog. I remeber when the UHQR vinyl disc came out with this recording from Mobile Fidelity but I was too poor to buy it at the time. The recording does sound good although the volume level of the surrounds is a little high for my preferences. Great effort and much approciated from its creator.

Those having problems should try ImageBurn software. Its free and I've found it to be very reliable for burning discs. Remember to not burn at high speeds and use quality media and I doubt you'll have problems.

Your very welcome...Yes the surrounds are a bit hot but that was an easy fit. For those having problems burning it I think someone mentioned IMGBURN, thats what I use and used it on this and it worked with no problems.

Glad I found this little gem for us all to enjoy.

I downloaded IMGBURN and am still getting a burn error. I'm starting to believe I have a bad DVD drive. I'm going to load everything onto a portable hard drive and see if I can burn it at work. Otherwise, if there are any special settings to use beyond the 'stock' settings, please somebody let me (and others) know what they are.
