Why no surround? I wouldn't worry about the dialnorm though, you just raise the MV by 4db, and presto. Better yet choose the uncompressed PCM as I would since I don't bother with those redundant tracks. YMMV.
Surround on these HFPAs is certainly hit and miss. COTC gets the same treatment as Breakfast In America, no 5.1. Interesting that SA-CD.net is still showing Black Sabbath's "13" on BD has a 5.1 track, when according to disappointed buyers it does not.
Whatever the stream size is, I'm not crazy about COTC. I guess I'm used to the built in subwoofer of the MFSL vinyl. This sounds okay but there is something lacking IMO. I've listened a couple of times but still can't put my finger on it. Maybe the CD is the way to go on this one. Or maybe I need to break out the single malt!
