Not a dumb question at all. I don't have the Perception box set but do have most of the APO SACDs with the 5.1 mixes and the L.A. Woman DVD-A (I believe). I never thought to compare the 5.1 and quad mixes as they'll definitely be very different. When I get a chance I'll compare a few tracks of the quad mixes to the 5.1 mixes. Should be interesting and it's a good idea.

Bill, are the 5.1 mixes on the APOs the Botnick mixes from the Perception titles?

I believe the mixes are the same. I have the Perception box set (DVDA) and three of the SACD's. I sat down one time and compared LA Women and to my ears they were exactly the same. I mean to me, they were EXACTLY the same.

I prefer the 5.1 mixes over the quad from the AF 'Best Of'. The 5.1 is just a more engaging mix to my ears. Then again I don't have the recent Blu Ray quad so what do I know..

I reject your reality and substitute my own.
