The Yes albums are all fantastic as I have recently got them and been cycling through them!

Most everything Steve Wilson touches is fantastic and you cannot go wrong with any of his 5.1 mixes.

As for must haves and excellent mixes, here is my list:

Roxy Music - Avalon
Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms
Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
Elton John - Any of his albums are the best value for your money
Anathema - A sort of Homecoming
Porcupine Tree - Anesthetize
Dredg - El Cielo
Bryan Ferry - Boys and Girls
Mike Oldfield - Any of his 5.1 mixes are fantastic
Roy Orbison - Black and White 30
Moody Blues - Any of their 5.1 mixes

That is the list off the top of my head...there are many great fanatics here that will chime in with their top picks!! There are so many great discs out there!
My credit line was upped just last month

Thank you for the list I forgot i own that Porcupine tree. Is their a 5.1 mix of Rumours?

Ascend Sierra 2's (LCR & side surrounds) + Pioneer upfiring modules. 5.1.2 setup
Marantz AV7703
NAD M25
Rythmik FV15HP

Yes, on DVD-Audio and SACD, both equally as good!

Listened to Birdsong at Morning - A Slight Departure on repeat this evening and have to say it is an amazing disc. The mix is subtle, yet perfect for the music. This will be in regular rotation for sure!!

Anyone have any of the Within Temptation 5.1 mixes on DVD or Blu-ray? Would be interested if they are worth purchasing.

Thank you

Marillion-Misplaced Childhood cd/blu ray set

If a movie or concert video or a TV show isn't on blu ray it darn well should be.
