Awful pricey for so little IMO. I bought all the 2015/16 DMM remasters when they first came out. They've crept up there in price. Glad I got 'em when I did. I got this on MoFi CD and an original 1982 U.S. Mercury pressing that's in minty condition from my days in the Army. The blu ray audio atmos discs look interesting, but still too much and I don't have an atmos system. So that's that.

    I gave up on any Rush album sounding good years ago. Great music, just horrid recordings.

    These are great for a CV setup on a receiver.

    Check out the DMM remasters, Tom. They sound pretty good IMO. The MoFi discs are good too, but you'll likely pay out the wazoo for these now. Long time OOP. The one Rush album that I think sounds horrid is Vapor Trails. I don't even like any of the songs on this one either. Signals, was the last, good Rush album IMHO.

    I've been buying the anniversary editions of the CD's mainly for the live extras. I must admit the original recordings in them are far worse than the original release CD.

    I'd love to see
    Farewell to Kings
    Moving pictures
    Signals
    2112
    Caress of steel
    Fly by night
    All the worlds a stage
    On SACD

    Audio Fidelity released Hemispheres and Presto on SACD. Presto turned out to be a little too bright for my taste, but I thought Hemispheres was good. It's one of my favorite early Rush albums. MoFi did a decent job with 2112, Permanent Waves, Moving Pictures and Signals. They're OOP, but worth getting if you can find them at a decent price, which isn't very likely. I think the 2015/16 reissues are pretty good. Good to my old ears anyway, but again, it's all subjective.

    Ivan, there was also this 2011 remaster of MP that included a DVD-A disc. There's a thread about it here somewhere in the archives, but I digress, this isn't a bad copy and it's still available at a cost that doesn't break the bank if anyone's interested.

    And thanks to Larry @Toolfan66, I got this one a few years back thanks to his post on it. The blu-ray audio slams on this version of 2112. Highly recommended for all Rush fans.

    Mike I do have some of the DVD audio's and did get the Hemisphere's SACD. The Blu Ray I have Fly by Night and Farewell to Kings. The Snakes album was some other Hi-Rez format which I bought but it was ruined in my flood. Counterparts is also on SACD but like Presto sound sucked. I would like their core stuff done up right like Hemispheres.
    My DVD audio/ Blu-Ray rig is a separate rig and room than the big 2ch rig more for movies with a 2.1 set up.

    Nothing to do with the Signals LP, but a cool find in a lot of records I bought recently. A little warpage but vinyl is in great shape!

    Promotional LPs are cool. Most likely issued to a radio station back in the day when DJs used to spin records on the air.
