Pink Floyd: The Division Bell 20th anniversary - 5.1 DVDIn our exclusive first review of Pink Floyd's The Division Bell 20th anniversary 5.1 surround mix blu-ray we mentioned that for those who cannot play blu-ray discs, or alternatively are simply after the 5.1 mix without the other items within the box set, a separate DVD was to be released.

This happened last June, with the DVD available to be ordered exclusively through the Pink Floyd Store. Demand was extremely high for these DVDs, and they sold out almost instantly. The good news for those of you who missed out is that a final, limited run of pressings has been done and the DVDs are now available to order from the same place.

As expected, the DVD did not have sufficient space to include the high definition, 24bit audio found on the blu-ray. However, it does give some sonic options for you. The album is included as an audio-only PCM stereo mix (48 khz) mastered by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Doug Sax. There's also the 5.1 audio mix, previously unreleased, mixed and mastered by Andy Jackson and Damon Iddins - this is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS 5.1. Finally, the 2014 film for Marooned, directed by Aubrey "Po" Powell, is on the DVD, with a PCM stereo, or Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS 5.1 surround mix.

The disc itself features a background of one of the paintings seen in the Marooned video.

To reiterate, this disc will not be available in stores, and is just from the the Floyd Store but on the basis of how quickly they sold last time, don't hang around if you want to secure your copy of this. Our thanks to Chris and Jeff for letting us know about this final opportunity to get hold of this release.
