I have Magnification on normal audio CD and think the music is great. Yes are always evolving and seem to be improving with age. And so is the technology used to play our music.
My main comment here is how the musical experience can further be improved by using a DVD audio disc on a normal DVD video player. The 5.1 surround sound is well mixed and makes the listening process much more enjoyable. Certainly the orchestral sections in Magnification come across more clearly due to the instrument separation.
It seems that some DVD audio discs have been designed to be compatible with DVD video players which I suppose has been necessary to get some sales. I have read that if you use an actual DVD audio player the sound is even better. Something else to save up for I suppose!

2002 DVD surround sound and hi-quality stereo edition of 2001 studio album...

To me this is an underrated Yes album.

As the years go on, its provenance grows and grows. I.e. the final Yes studio album with Jon Anderson. The chemistry between the four guys Anderson-Squire-Howe-White, with Larry Groupe orchestrating memorably and successfully IMO in place of keyboards, is as good as ever. The best Yes studio album, I would say, since the glorious 70s. The nearest they got to reaching those compositional highs.

And now it has added kudos following the (2015) passing of Chris Squire. Effectively classic Yes' swansong. The one track that Squire sings (and wrote originally as an idea for the abortive X-Y-Z project with Jimmy Page, I believe, in the early 80s) now is so poignant, being a few thoughts on the afterlife, Can You Imagine. And what an able lead vocalist he was, as well as backing. I realise now in retrospect the magnificent epic Dreamtime, lyrically, must also be on that same topic... 'On wings of gold you fly away'. At least that's my take on it.

There is a unique and engaging sleeve essay by Groupe, on the background to the album's construction, e.g. he notes that the Dreamtime 'endrature' was originally planned as an 'overture' to the track. Also that Give Love Each Day was the first track he arranged - with its own lovely prelude I always thought it would have made the right opening to the whole album. But at least it was used to open the wonderful symphonic live shows in 2001. Appropriately Groupe fell in love with Yes when he bought their only previous orchestral album Time and a Word in 1970. So he has a good pedigree for the job at hand here.

Most listeners seem to agree In the Presence of... is the standout track.

There's no particular need to invite/introduce people to Yes, so I will only state that this one is one of the best albums in my collection
