Default More Rush in High Def 5.1

... but maybe DVD-A only. No mention of Blu Ray.

On November 21st, Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) celebrates the legacy of Canadian rock trio Rush with the release of three separate six-disc box sets which together spans their entire historic Mercury Records recording career. Each 'Sector' contains five of their 15 Mercury albums in chronological order, all transferred to high resolution 96kHz/24-bit and digitally remastered for optimal quality. In addition, each volume includes an exclusive booklet packed with unpublished photos, original album lyrics and credits, and features one album from each set specially remixed on DVD in high resolution 96kHz/24-bit, 5.1 surround sound and stereo, compatible with both DVD-Audio players and DVD-Video players. Each album is packaged in a replica vinyl mini-jacket of the original album release with all three box sets forming a Rush CD road case.

SECTOR 1: Rush - All The World's A Stage, and on DVD in 5.1, Fly By Night

SECTOR 2: A Farewell To Kings - Exit Stage Left, and on DVD in 5.1, A Farewell To Kings

SECTOR 3: Signals - A Show Of Hands, and on DVD in 5.1, Signals

might be interested in Sector's 1 and 2(shame Sector 2 could'nt have ended w/ Signals, oh well)

The mid- to late 80's Rush really did'nt do it for me. did like 1989's Presto though.

This is big news. Wow, finally, HD quality disks at normal prices. It's been getting insane with SHD-SACD prices hitting ¥4500 or close to $55 for single, stereo disks. Hope to see lots more HD music out with this kind of packaging and pricing.

Bear in mind each of the boxes apparently only has one album in DVD-A, and the rest are remastered CDs.

I believe this is just a Money grab by MERCURY on the older RUSH catalog; hence the effort put out on these titles.

Yeah - really puzzled by this set of sets. No thank you. I'll wait for a full catalog of Blu releases thank you.

I picked up the sector 2 set with a gift card i received for Christmas. Most of my favorite Rush albums were in this era so I couldn't pass it up. The 5.1 mix on the Farewell to Kings DVD-A is really pretty good. Being as that has always been my favorite album I just couldn't resist. I walked around with it in hand for close to an hour trying to convince myself to pick up 3 or 4 blus instead but in the end this will get more use than any 10 of my blu-rays (well except for Moving Pictures) so although a bit pricey (it helped that I had $100 in BB gift cards) it was worth it to me. I've already listened to the DVD-A 4 times.
