    @rontoon Do you believe DSOT, Venice, and Pulse will have standalone releases further down the road?

    I don't know but if they did I'd assume that it would be a very long road. More likely that individual sets will be available as they did with TEY.

    I hope the AMLOR remix (80s-less version) makes the cut. And though some might not like them, I hope we get La Carrera PanAmericana, and Colours of Infinity soundtracks.

    I would buy this set in a heartbeat! Venice was my point of entry for Floyd, DSoT I wore through two copies on cassette before buying the CD. All of the 5.1 audio material on Lossless BluRay and remastered DSoT/PULSE CD albums as well. Hopefully a PULSE concert BluRay with SD video and a lossless soundtrack. Take my money already!

    I appreciate that post Roger Floyd isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but for those that are, i’m struggling to find fault with what is (reputedly going to be) offered for those that are fans.

    Would have serious doubts buying that box. Don't need the original albums again. Don't have a 5.1 setup. Would only leave DSOT and Venice video to desire.

    What is that DSOTM dvd? Im only familiar with the Pulse concert with the whole album being played, is that it?

    DSOT (Delicate Sound of Thunder) not DSOTM (Dark Side of the Moon).

    Perhaps, yeah. With all the talk about Animals 5.1, wouldn't it make sense for them to put that in? Why does Animals always get forgotten?

    I've only had two cups of tea today, but I can't decipher this sentence - what does it mean?

    It means there’s more video content than audio

    Animals is Waters era. They have different companies / partnerships established for this era.

    The set will be mostly video. Meaning 12 discs of video and 8 of audio.

    I have to say that if this is confirmed, I am norm impressed.
    The greatest thing about The Early Years was that it was ALL unreleased material, at least on this format. If the 20Disc format includes the original albums (7CD) and duplicated video material, then it leaves very little for unreleased material. VERY underwhelming.
    And it would be so easy to do it with only unreleased material...

    It's not confirmed. But if you take everything that 100% will be in the box, you get 20 discs. So this is my educated guess, sorry if I confused you

    You did not confuse me. If the original albums are indeed there, that's how the box will most certainly look like.

    Count on it. A good deal of this, if not the majority, will have been previously available via official releases.

    I dont get why including the studio albums? I doubt they will be remastered and surely they know or atleast think majority of floyd fans already own the albums but hey ho either way ill buy it i really love the later years

    Yup. I’d buy a 2-3 Blu-ray set of all the video but there isn’t much to get me to go for this box. 5.1 isn’t my thing.

    I guess there is less Floyd involvement on this one. The TEY box had full support by Nick Mason, who is quite occupied at the moment

    In regards to the studio releases only The Endless River was widely available in surround.

    I dont see why you'd assume that. There is a lot less work (research, finding material, securing rights) involved in this one but nothing gets worked on or included w/o being approved.

    Damn, I've gone from excited to disinterested in the space of what, ten posts? I only watch the video stuff once, and it's mostly video, then it's a bust.

    Has DSoT or PULSE ever received a remastering on CD since their original release?

    The Wall Immersion had a remastered Is There Anybody Out There?; the remaster was an improvement over the original release but also didn’t include the excellent liner notes that the original release had. Not sure how many people bought The Wall Immersion who didn’t already own a copy of ITAOT? Though.

    TEY box set had a remixed OBC, although in that particular case I prefer the original mix and the 2011 Why Pink Floyd? Mastering.

    Time will tell with regards Momentary and TDB studio albums on CD. Is there any real improvement available over the 2011 remasters vs merely a different mastering?

    Interesting to read the opinions of those with no interest in the 5.1 material vs those with 5.1 setups. The hidden Meddle 5.1 along with all the vintage quad stuff on TEY made that box essential in my book, but here was also a lot more 2 channel CD audio in that set relative to the video/quad/5.1 material for those withough capability/interest. This time around, without all the BBC sessions, TV appearances and other promotional work, we’re much more focused around scrubbed up presentations of previously issued material. If one isn’t particularly caring for or cannot make use of the 5.1 material, the fact it is a lossless multichannel mix of something that was previously only available at best in 2 channel LPCM on Laserdisc is neither here nor there.
