I apologize for this ahead of time, but this review is for the 5.1 DTS-HD MA. I don't know all the audiophile language . That being said, this is a little intimidating. I mean, let's be honest, there's some people who post on this site who really know their shit! One word comes to mind about this disc.....WOW, WOW, AND WOW!!!!! There is so much detail that for me, it was like listening to a completely new disc from the original.
I really hope this format catches on because I have about 500 other albums they can give this treatment to. And who knows, I might even learn the language of the audiophiles. Get this disc. You'll enjoy it.

Yes - Close To The Edge Blu-Ray Audio
This 5.1 is at the very least is my definitive Yes disc unless they come out with a hologram in my living room of the band playing live. The 5th album for Yes, remastered to 5.1 in 2013. Complicated little bugger as there are actually too many choices for me. I listened to the 2014 Stereo CD in my Ford with factory stereo and it sounded as good as I have ever heard. I listened to the 5.1 Surround mix on the home system and they nailed it, best I can say. I listened via the DTS mode in 5.1 and was stunning. The analog external out 5.1 was fantastic, just that the DTS had a bit more punch. With these two discs you have 8 ways of listening to the same thing, that's why a bit much for me. Paper package and liner notes are great. Onscreen audio setup and choices are easy. Steven Wilson did a spectacular job. Glad I have it. The Yes Album and this have very different onscreen formats, still easy, just made me wonder why.

Omegaman, great review of a classic Yes album on cd/bluray, can't believe there are around 6 different
sound qualities on the disc and all the extras, and the recent "The Yes Album"brilliant, i understand
"Relayer" is the next cab off the rank.
