So I was considering getting the Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here "Immersion Box Set". I assume most of the cd, DVD and BD disks will rip normally, but one disk is identified as follows:
DISC 3 - DVD1, ALL AUDIO:
-Wish You Were Here, James Guthrie 2009 5.1 Surround Mix (previously unreleased) in standard resolution audio at 448 kbps
-Wish You Were Here, James Guthrie 2009 5.1 Surround Mix (previously unreleased) in high resolution audio at 640 kbps
-Wish You Were Here, Original Mix (1975) LPCM stereo
-Wish You Were Here, Quad Mix (previously released only on vinyl LP/8 track tape) in standard resolution audio at 448 kbps
-Wish You Were Here, Quad Mix (previously released only on vinyl LP/8 track tape) in high resolution audio at 640 kbps
So, will something like AnyDVD rip this and maintain the special formats?
And how do you playback and map the channels on a Quad Mix? How is the quad mix on these things decoded and played back? I doubt many people have 1970s vintage quadraphonic decoders, plus, that was an analog vinyl or tape system, not a digital format. So are these things digitally encoded to play back in quad on modern 5.1 systems? Will a modern AVR handle this properly? (at least unlike the 1970s, we all have 4+ speakers today, I'm just wondering how the sound gets to the four speakers).
Also, the BD includes a track "AUDIO: Wish You Were Here, Original stereo mix (1975) mastered in high resolution audio at 96 kHz/24-bit". What's the best way to rip an audio-only track from a BD to an MP3 while maintaining the quality?
Anyone have any of these Pink Floyd immersion editions who can explain how this works?
