Here is a nice preview, including a live Us and Them from 1974! http://www.prx.org/pieces/67381-why-pink-floyd

SACD? DVD-A? Well why not an Elcaassette or a tin-foil cylinder? Everyone dropped the ball when no one remembered that the Red Book gave the Compact Disc 4 discrete channels.

So what we have now is someone’s best guess as to what it should be, or a hissy matrix of what was.

Forget the diatribe of the lost art of quadraphonic; either being in the middle of a live performance to being in the middle of a studio recording, but I must ask again this:

Will the discrete 4 channel 1975 master of WWYH be reproduced, or will it be someone’s “new and improved gee whiz and even better” 5.1 mix be released? Will the SACD be “identical” to the CD/Blu-ray releases?

In addition, yea, I’ve heard the Animals quad; I am pretty sure it’s the discrete mix, there’s a pretty accurate Meddle out there, and I know the AHM quad lovingly, but, hey you, is there anybody out there who can tell if those will ever see the glint of a blue laser on polycarbonate, exactly as they were, was or should have been?

Very nice set. From what we know now, this one looks like the most value for money, with WYWH as second.

I’m sure you’re right – I just got a little jumpy when the screen text (everything from the DVDs in high resolution) contradicted what the disc appears to contain.

I must say, it’s only a small thing, but I do like the design of the discs in this set.

I was wondering about that. If you look closely at the blu-ray disc in that trailer, it lists the contents (as do all the others). They are listed as:
Surround sound mix (2003)
Original stereo
Live in Brighton
Documentary
Screen films (stereo/5.1)

No mention of the quad mix…
