Avatar's Studio A was the ultimate garage for this Acura TL sedan.

They say parking is hard to find in New York City, but this is ridiculous. Many visitors to Avatar Studios' Studio A on April 13, 2004, were probably surprised to find an Acura TL sport sedan inside the famed room. Even more startling, however, was the sonic richness of the material playing in the car: a new DTSE 5.1 DVD-Audio release from DTS Entertainment of Porcupine Tree's In Absentia.

Such talents as surround mixer Elliot Scheiner, surround mastering engineer Darcy Proper of Sony Studios NYC and Porcupine Tree singer/songwriter Steven Wilson were in attendance. The car's sound system demonstrated the impressive depth and strength of the DVD, which also features myriad video and graphic extras for video players.
