Reminds me a little of 40+ years ago with quadraphonic.
I was certainly happy but then that was a long time ago and and it's improved considerably.
Quadraphonic sound was based on creating a totally immersive experience which was, also, totally unlike any real performance experience.
OTOH, modern multichannel is intended to recreate the real performance experience by incorporating the ambiance characteristics that make the actual performance sound unique to the time and place.
It is hardly a surprise that quad fans often complain about how their classic recordings are changed when remastered for today's multichannel.
Some of them work really well, Kal. For example the Pentatone reissue of the Boston/Ozawa Faust (PTC5186 212). I think the engineers had high aims but lacked the technology to get the results to the end user.
