I had a chance to give the Deadwing disc a spin.
Overall, it makes excellent use of the surrounds, the surrounds are blended well and it is very detailed. However, IMO it is a tad on the bright side for my ears. On the quiet or more mellow tracks, it sounds very good to excellent but on the louder passages, it gets a bit on the shrill side which forces me to turn the volume down and that is the opposite of what I want to do with some of these songs.
I listened to both the DTS and MLP layers and the MLP layer sounds, on the whole, better but I still found the same shrillness throughout but maybe not quite as much. I could listen to the MLP layer at a higher volume. The song LAZARUS, which I like very much, was very good but it is one of the more mellow tracks; The same with MELLOTRON SCRATCH. OPEN CAR begs to be played REALLY loud but I just wasn't able to get it anywhere near where I wanted without it bothering me.
It was worth the $18 I paid but I wouldn't pay the prices advertised for even the used ones right now.
