After reading thru this thread, I got curious to hear Asia.
I was a big Wetton fan from Crimson & UK daze.

It was not bad, but as with most of the 101 concerts, what bugs me the most is the "No Center Channel" phenomenon!

Am I the only one with this issue?
Does no one else experience this?
I've only seen 1 other thread mentioning this issue, and there was no resolution.
I've called support several times, and its always the old "we can't duplicate your problem" excuse.

From Radiohead, to The Wire, from TPB to OZ, no Center channel thru my Denon AVR.
D* is sending something, because my display shows 5.1 DD, but it sure isn't audio.That center channel is as dead as the Jethro Tull concert!
The only time it transmits an audio stream is on commercials, and C&W concerts.

Finally got round to seeing this last night... and I have to say I was somewhat disappointed with the lackluster performance. There's no doubt these are all excellent musicians, but let's say it was an "off night".

It also wasn't helped by the appalling audio: 'recorder' said there was no center, I checked and there are no surrounds or sub either. So we're just getting 2.0 audio even though the indicators (on my Yamaha receiver) show 5.1 (at 448kb/s). What concerns me though is, are we just getting the front channels from a 5.1 mix rather than a true 2.0 mix. A good stereo mix can sound great, but this doesn't, as if we're simply missing what was intended for the other 3.1 channels.
