    purchased keane dualdisc wondered if anyone else has, first off no problems playing either side cd or dvd, the technical information on the sleeve is very bad, to get the advanced surround sound had to feed my 3805 via the 6 phono leads from my arcam dvd player so i presume its a dvd-a encoded disc tried feeding signal via digital coax and it only comes through in stereo thats why i wondered if anyone else has bought it, by the way the surround sound is not over the top like some dvd-a discs i have, just nice ans subtle from the rear surrounds and at £10.99 not a bad price

    Supposably labelling the dualdiscs as DVD-A confuses the general public so they would be less likely to buy dualdisc. so they have taken the route of not putting anything on the dualdisc at all.

    Hmmmmm that seems like a really sensible route to take :suicide:

    Not heard of "dualdiscs" before

    I have Keane on SACD, sounds pretty good, synth solo on bedshaped is more subdued than the normal CD but other than that it's pretty good (other than it being a track short - On a Day Like Today I think).

    I've had the DualDisc on pre-order @ cduniverse for months now! Looking forward to hearing it :D

    Trent Reznor is usually pretty meticulous, so it should sound superb - hopefully as good if not better than 'The Downward Spiral' SACD :devil:
