Hi all,

Another random question:

What 6ch lossless albums do people own or know about?

I bought some cheap music DVDs MTV unplugged type stuff and can extract out the ac3/dts soundtracks so if I want I can just listen to them as audio tracks.
It got me wondering if there are lossless surround sound albums?

Technically I guess videos could count here as I cannot play multi-channel PCM via SPDIF, I have to send it via HDMI, so could send the video as well, but I just wondering! rolleyes.gif

I have the Iron Maiden album 'Dance of Death' that I ripped from the DVD-A disc into multi-channel FLAC files.
The best part is I have never listened to them as I have never owned a multi-channel audio set-up in my life tongue.gif

A lot of concert Blu-Rays have lossless audio, plus as just said some DVD-As have surround tracks.

probedb - agreed.
Yeah I have an Adel BD that has lossless surround sound.
But to be honest I don't rewatch videos, but I relisten to music audio - hence my question.

The ones I know of:
- Bjorn Lynne
- David Arkenstone - Myths & Legends (2cd set, which is sort of surround)

I know, but I rip just the audio so I can listen to the concert smile.gif For example, an old NIN DVD and CD release had more songs on the DVDs so I ripped the audio and I never listen to the CD.

I guess that is the route then. The good news is that music concerts are often the first to end the bargain bins price wise!

I own dozens, and I've converted most of them to FLAC by now.

DVD-Audio discs with multi-channel PCM, and SACD with multi-channel DSD, appeared on the market in the early 2000's and are still trickling out today.

Yep, DVD-As and SACDs are lossless. Some of them are also surround sound. The tough part is just finding albums that are mixed in surround, and available for purchase. I've never found more than 5 albums I wanted which had a surround mix. Out of those 5, two sounded identical to the stereo mixes, but with extra reverb in the back channels. Very disappointing. (The other 3, however, were stunning.)

You can try looking for some of these releases, but you'll probably need new equipment to play them also. They're lossless but they're definitely not FLACs, and they've got heavy DRM chaining the audio to the disc.
