Will this be available through the Universal site and other retailers like Amazon.com? I'm not seeing it at either for the moment as a pre-order. If it's in 5.1 I'll definitely be buying it.
My original info comes from SA-CD.net, who has it listed as 2.0 and 5.1 mc. Universal's HFPA web site (which, when navigating, rates up there with having a root canal) shows it as 2.0 pcm and Dolby TrueHD, but does not say stereo or mc. I hear the release date is Sept. in parts of Europe and Nov. on this side of the pond. I would think you could buy from them or Amazon, whenever they decide to post it.
I have a few HFPAs, mostly good ones from checking here and other web sites first before buying...and I don't recall them producing anything that would be considered "new" like Sabbath's 13 (where it's only a year old or so). Anyone recall Universal producing a fairly new HFPA before this one?
