Found this on Amazon.com. Anyone know the details, aside from it being DTS 7.1 and a subscription of some form?

Oh dear, don't get me started! Search old posts on Surround Records, and threads by patmiller and clarafox (suspicious Jero aliases). They used to worship him as insider on Blu-ray.com but he was recently banned and all his threads were locked and unpinned! Finally they realised what happened. His thread here (after his ban over there) was deleted. Enough said.

Audiosceptics accept audio trials using 25 people. A recent Oxford study with over 353,000 patient records from 639 separate clinical trials shows for every 1,000 people taking diclofenac or ibuprofen there would be 3 additional heart attacks, 4 more cases of heart failure and 1 death every year.

I wonder if these recording artists are even aware that they're "participating" on these Jero titles:

Most reviews were taken down by Amazon, as the positive one's were from Alexander Jero himself using phony names. Most of his releases are not only illegal but they are simply stereo upmixes from cd's. He's even admitted to using stereo sources for his 7.1 releases. The guy is a con artist and should be avoided like the plague.

They seem to arise like zombies every few weeks until Amazon removes them again.

To compound the issue, they are sonically horrific - most likely homegrown multichannel simulation from a stereo source. I had the misfortune of purchasing one of his early "efforts" before the reality of the situation was known. Simply the worst recording I've heard in many years.

Other than that, no issues
