RE: Buena Vista Social Club missing center channel - Sorta

I checked both my file ripped from the DVD-A and the original disc and, for both, there is nothing audible coming out of my center speaker. Jriver identifies it as 6 channels but its spectrum analyzer shows that the center channel is >30dB down from the other main channels.

So, effectively, this is a 4.1 channel, 24/96 recording.

Curiously, the DVD (not DVD-A) varies track by track. Some are 4.1 (especially those that are of the recording studio work) and others are 5.1.
