I re-encoded the videos using Sony Vegas 7.0 and took the opportunity to crop the original letterboxing. All of the audio has been replaced using original CD rips to WAV format and synced to the video in Sony Vegas 7.0. Once audio was synced it was transcoded to AC3 384kbps using EACto. I upmixed all the audio to 5.1 Dolby Digital using Plogue Bidule then transcoded the wav to AC3 5.1 448kbps again using EACto. Stockholm Syndrome USA was taken from a Promo DVD and the audio was synced with the Radio Edit Promo audio. I download TiRO USA from mIRC a couple of years ago, unfortunately the quality isn't as good as I would have liked. Hysteria USA was also ripped from a Promo DVD, Apocalypse Please was taken straight from the Absolution Tour DVD - purely to make the set complete. 'Making of' videos were ripped from my DVD singles.

If you are lucky enough to have a home cinema system simply press the audio button on your remote control to switch to the fake upmix in Dolby Digital 5.1

If you look at the following screenshot you can see how bad the audio is from TV, hence why I decided to include original audio:

Thanks to mapoftheglorious for creating the motion menus, they look great.

Thanks to Niall for providing me with Stockholm Syndrome Radio Edit in FLAC. Thanks to Phil for supplying me with Stockholm Syndrome Promo DVD and Hysteria USA Promo DVD - huuuuge thanks to Benit for the amazing artwork.

Like all of the other releases I have put an awful lot of my spare time in this release, I hope you all enjoy it.

This set of DVD's must NEVER be sold/auctioned.
