    Though I'm skeptical about the "up-mix", I have to say I was pleased with what they did for the surround version of Anthony Phillips' Field Day, which is only solo instruments so there's nothing to place in different areas of the room, but they used some kind of magic that gives it a definite in-the-room feeling.

    Agreed, but that probably would not fly with something as densely packed as Olias of Sunhillow.

    That's why I'm skeptical and would need to hear good things about it before I shelled out for it.

    I have no idea how it was done
    I remember a interview with Giles Martine years ago about how he de mixed or extracted elements recorded on the same tracks for The Beatles rock band game
    No idea how they do this these says

    But the way Simon Heyworth was able to separate does guitars and spin them around was mighty impressive

    Since the 5.1 certainly won't be a discrete mix made from the multi-tracks I think I will stick with Audio Fidelitey Stereo SACD which sound really good:

    I always assumed they had master tapes in order to isolate those instruments for the Rockband game, but maybe they also use some mysterious DAW editing sound extraction program? Ill try to Google it...

    Maybe some of the same kind of techniques that they used here,

    If ever a remastered album needed a box set with a large format booklet for the artwork, it's this one.

    Olias Of Sunhillow is one of my favorite LP's ever. It is perfect and needs no further alteration of any kind.

    I think they used Retouch by Cedar using demix technology – the ability to remove and separate sounds from a single track.

    Yes, that's the same guy, referred to as "a guy who works in IT here" by Giles Martin:

    I was not overly impressed with Audio Fidelity's SACD of Olias - sounded about the same as my Japanese CD pressing from many ages ago. I intend to pick up the Esoteric release. --Peter
