Heard that Incantations was getting the reissue treatment later this year--anyone know if it will include a 5.1 mix as did the last three Oldfield "expanded" sets?

Thanks!

It includes highlights only in 5.1 448 Kbps Dolby Digital.

Real shame on these releases, Incantations should have the whole thing in 5.1 and they should all include a lossless version, DVD-A, Blu-ray, SACD, whatever, just make it lossless.

Just wanted to post that I was able to rip my 54 surround-sound DVD-Audio discs to .wav format with DvdAudio-Explorer then convert them to .FLAC format with Foobar-2000. No loss in fidelity.

This was important as virtually no DVD-Audio players are being released. Now only SACD discs need to be physically played. Excellent solution for those stuck with legacy technology!

I do own the Tubular Bells DVD-Audio from 2003. Its 48KHz-24bit.

There are several universal players out there, still in production. Oppo, Denon, Marantz.

What a shame indeed, Incantations begging for surround, and no perceptual codec should be used on any surround releases, especially legacy Dolby which even by Dolby's admission is not meant for music only encoding.
