I highly suggest the Immersion Box Sets of Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here and The Wall.

I gotta go with kamakiriad for one. The mix is well - pretty incredible. Teahouse on the Tracks is great! Produced by the master himself Elliot Schiener Not real popular tunes but I like it!
Of course DSOTM, WYWH, Night at the Opera, Morph the kat, the Love album.
and Steve Miller band. I have the full cut version in 5.1 of Fly Like an Eagle. Cool stuff in 5.1!!

Agree! It's like you got no excuses left! But being a landlord I see it every day. Speakers all piled up around the TV. I try to explain but it falls on deaf ears. the one's who have responded, love it! Like you have no idea what you are missing out on and check the quad site. I think about every multi-channel disc made and quad LP is listed there.

piss off then

Six String Theory was relatively cheap for a while, then it shot up in price fast. Best to just put a tracker on it and wait. There's another fantastic sounding Ritenour multichannel studio concert called Overtime. You can find it for a good price used still.

What are the other Monster Super Discs?

Thanks for the reminder! Still have my 2010 MDX and that disc came with it, but I haven't played it since I bought the car! Just pulled it out of my "library" and will be giving it a spin the next time I'm driving!

Just load up with the great artists featured on Peaky Blinders & you should be good to go.

ok, ok, not really High Rez quality, per se. But top quality in all other respects.
