Repress of the faulty DVD from the 2015 Deluxe Edition Box Set of "Sparkle In The Rain".
Sent out by Universal Music upon request and delivered in a sealed paper sleeve with a new corrected booklet.

Initial copies of this DVD had a mono mix instead of Steven Wilson's 2014 Stereo Mix. And problems with the 5.1 Mix had been acknowledged too.

Matrix numbers help distinguishing this DVD from the faulty one.

Despite the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 logo on the label side of the disc, this audio format is not available on this release.

Audio formats available in DVD-Video mode:
- DTS 96/24 5.1 (1509 Kbps)

After performing several comparisons between the 5.1 mix from this new DVD and the one on the new blu-ray (I have a copy of both), I can tell that only the new blu-ray has the corrected 5.1 mix.
The 5.1 mix from the new DVD sounds the same as the one from the initial faulty blu-ray.
In other words, the stereo mix has been adressed on the DVD, not the 5.1 mix.
That said, the differences between the 5.1 mixes are quite subtle.
