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.

Supertramp - Breakfast In America

Audio streams
2Ch PCM stream encoded at 96kHz/24-bit
2Ch DTS-HD MA stream encoded at 96kHz/24-bit
2Ch Dolby TrueHD stream encoded at 96kHz/16-bit!

Video stream
As you can see below, the size of video stream is much smaller (percentage-wise) than previous HFPA disc's. But it's still much bigger than it needs to be!

When the audio and video streams are 'de-muxed' from within the .m2ts container (which has a large over-head), this is what you see: -

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!
