I pre-ordered this from Amazon with the intent of cancelling it if the price didn't go down. Fortunately (or unfortunately) Amazon shipped out my order rather quickly and it arrived today. I couldn't resist opening it. It's quite an elegant package and the Blu ray sounds amazing, and although it's much more than I would normally spend on a single music purchase, I can't say that I feel ripped-off. My early Christmas present to myself.
My one nitpick is that the back of the Blu ray sleeve listing does not match how the different sound mixes are organized on the Blu ray disc. (The back of the sleeve lists: "a) Album mixed to 5.1 surround sound with 4 additional recordings all 96/24 LPCM & DTS-HD Master Audio")
To me, a = 1, but the DTS-HD is the third sound option (out of five) on the sound menu. In other words, I need to boot up my TV and go through the top menu to select the sound option I want. Personally, I just like to put the Blu ray disc in my player, hit play, and be surrounded with a glorious 5.1 sound field without ever turning on my TV.
As I said this is my own personal nitpick and doesn't distract from this fantastic package and with a few memorized clicks on my remote I should be good to go without using my TV.
