Rush‘s 1976 album 2112 is being reissued next week in a number of configurations, with a CD/DVD issue, a CD/Blu-ray alternative and a Super Deluxe Edition which pairs the CD/Blu-ray with a 40-page comic book representing every song on the album.
The big news is that a 5.1 surround mix has been created by engineer Rich Chycki and this will be available on the DVD (actually a DVD-A with hi-res surround) and the Blu-ray.

- • 5.1 Surround Sound mix in PCM (DVD-Audio players) and 48kHz / 24-bit Dolby Digital (DVD-Video players)
- • 96kHz / 24-bit PCM Stereo (DVD-Audio players) and 48kHz / 24-bit Dolby Digital Stereo (DVD-Video players)
On the CD/Blu-ray package (including Super Deluxe Edition)
