It’s interesting. Based on other discussions going on about audio (or lack there of), I checked out these new titles from Warner Music. On the Store they are all DTS-HD MA 5.1, while on Apple they are only in Stereo (and I suspect that they must be lossy). I couldn’t find any of these new titles on Vudu.

I am going to have to check on the status of other Music releases (Eagle Rock, UMG, etc.).

If you are working with Warner Media, you should look into incorporating their DVD-Audio catalog. Even if you couldn't do the high resolution multi-channel PCM mixes (I believe you guys support PCM), you could do the Dolby mixes. Most of these are near impossible to get on disc now, so might be something to draw some people in! Same goes for Universal Music, who did DVD-A AND Blu-ray audio.

+1 for this. I would like it.

EXACTLY, Kris, multichannel music is the most overlooked indispensable component of immersive audio. As good as concerts are they do not begin to convey the spatial resolution spectacle conveyed by these wonder discs. My research into immersive audio besides research in positioning multiple full bandwidth speakers consists of a 64terabytte Kaleidescape library out of which maybe 14 terabytes are of reference quality immersive demo content, a similar dollar amount has been spent on tracking down the best of the best multichannel audio, you can see half of the collection here. My dream would be for the store to offer these multichannel music marvels because they truly complete the best of systems.

There is a pretty extensive library out there not being used when you look at all the players that were involved. Lots of IP no longer being used (unless Tidal and such is). Are there PCM limitations with Kscape? I notice that quite a bit of the Sony concert titles are DTS 5.1 instead of the 96/24 PCM mixes on the Blu. John Mayer is a great example. Lots of Sony content out there with 5.1 96/24 mixes (Beyonce, NIN, Dave Matthews, etc) that I'm not seeing on this platform.
