Let's hear some thoughts on the MLP/DTS-ES included on this disc.
I'm a big NIN fan and I followed the release of SACD/DVD-A of Nine Inch Nails - The Downward Spiral pretty closely. That release was done in "only" 48kHz as well but that was because that was the resolution of the original tapes the album was recorded to. Trent Reznor is a sound quality NUT (like us) and was advised to preserve the original sampling rate to get the best quality.
I agree that this CD isn't their best, but it's still good. If we could get their first CD in 5.1 that would be amazing!!
I don't want to throw this into a NIN hijack, but just in case anyone is interested:
His follow up in the surround sound world was his most recent CD "With Teeth" and that has the full resolution of the format. He is also coming out with a Blu-Ray DVD of his most recent tour in full 1080p!
And there is talk that he might release Pretty Hate Machine in 5.1 also (page by me): hxxp://www.pfeifferbeer.com/nin/
