RE: Are Audiophiles here disappointed with multichannel?

I have a multichannel setup but can't remember the last time I played anything on it. I have the Quad DVD-A of DSOTM, and also Beatles Love.

DSOTM is a different mix than the original stereo done by Alan Parsons for a quad LP that I don't think was ever released. It sounds great, and it was the only version I would play for many years (as much as I could play DSOTM anyway). But then I upgraded my turntable and put on my old copy and the LP just blew it away. I was surprised myself. Love is just gimmicky. After a few listens I tired of the mash up.

All of the rest of the surround DVD-A that I had were audiophile recordings, and the performances in these is always lacking. Too much attention is paid to the recording, but nobody bothers to play. And usually it is a second rate orchestra/band/group. And to this day I still have never owned an SACD. This isn't for any particular reason, I just don't own any. Maybe it was that my original DVD-A player was only DVD-A, not the Oppo universal player I have now, actually for ~5 years at this point
