As I recall, one of the key features of why the AnimEigo set is worth hanging on to is that they secured the use of better audio for the episodes compared with the Japanese soundtrack on the later ADV release.
That's really interesting, I had no idea it was a known issue.
I do remember hearing about the ADV sets using an inferior audio source though, I'd be interested in finding out why that happened.

I don't think I was ever going to sell off my AnimEigo set (retire, in my mind, just means not playing the discs anymore), but I definitely wanna look into backing up the discs. It's still got a lot of historical value, even if we end up getting the Japanese bluray masters down the road.
