    how do you all listen to NIN in 5.1? Are those versions available for streaming? Do you need to own an SACD?

    I have the DVDA/SACD/BD versions of what is available. Maybe there's a version on YouTube for streaming? I've seen a couple albums on there in 5.1 so it's possible.

    I'd love NIN to play Sunday Bloody Sunday live with Saul Williams

    OH man, now that's an album - hell, an artist - I've not listened to in a long time and I need to fix that.

    My Acura plays the WT and TDS dualdisc DVD-A.

    The best way to hear them is to acquire ISOs of the dead DVD-A and SACD formats, preferably the DVD-A, and rip them to WAV. The SACD format is a mess.

    Your device would need to connect to the receiver via HDMI to play the lossless audio in surround. Direct via a PC or device hosting a USB drive/burned disc with the WAV files.

    A BD boxset of the main albums in surround would be sick, hopefully they do something official in a good format someday.

    Oh right, there were some high-end card that came with DVDa players. I seem to recall one version that had a center channel built in to the player.

    the problem with that is that the only person who would be in the "sweet spot" would be the middle seat passenger in the back, and then the front L+R channels are going to be partially blocked by the seats (and the bodies in them). a car is not an ideal place for a 5.1 system (not to mention the engine noise and the sounds of being out on the road). but i guess it's an interesting novelty? i would find myself so distracted while driving, though, paying too much attention to the spacial distribution of sounds instead of, y'know, driving.

    On this, the birthday for The Slip, I wonder again at where this remix came from.

    Possibly a fan mix that was on remix.nin.com at the time?? Or are you thinking there’s more legitimacy to it?

    The 10th anniversary edition of TDS was released on SACD and DVD-A, with the remixed stereo audio in hi-res and 5.1 mixes. WT was released on DVD-A, again with hi-res stereo and 5.1. I don't think there's much out there that will properly play the hi-res audio from a DVD-A (unless you're using hardware that explicitly supports DVD-A, which is pretty uncommon nowadays, and wasn't even common in the mid-2000s), though you can play the regular Dolby stereo and 5.1 mixes on pretty much anything that plays regular DVDs, and unless you have super-high end equipment, you probably won't notice much difference in quality. If you have a PC with a disc drive, there's a specialized program that will rip the DVD-A audio to WAV, and it's not complex at all to use.

    I should also point out that TDS and WT were DualDisc releases, which meant one side of the disc was the CD version of the album, and if you flipped the disc over it was the DVD-A version.

    The Social Network was released on Blu-ray with a 5.1 mix back in 2011. The Ghosts I-IV deluxe editions came with the album on Blu-ray as well, but that was just hi-res stereo audio, no 5.1 mix unfortunately.

    Fan mix, one of my early ones.. I didn't attach my name to it because it's a bit poor. Best avoid.

    oh good, mystery solved. I had no idea where it came from when I found it on my external hard drives when I was cleaning them up over the summer.

    Spoiler: I like it...

    also, since we're talking about 5.1 here's the link to the thread on 5.1 surround music.

    I pledged my allegiance in the early 90's and the rewards keep on coming. It's hard to believe to be honest. Hope they come to the UK soon..

    Broken sounds amazing on vinyl! Just picked it up from my local record shop and nearly 30 years on, it still sounds like it could come out today and blow everyone's minds. It doesn't sound dated at all. Wish and Last are absolutely massive through speakers, and the bonus seven inch with Suck and Physical is awesome too.

    Trent briefly mentioned his daughter being sick last year, and as a father of a daughter that suddenly kicked me in the throat.

    For someone I feel is so far removed from me (I never want to meet him, I can only feel like it would be a disaster for me) it felt so strange to have a sudden connection to him in that way…
