Genesis 1983–1998 is a box set of four studio albums by Genesis. It was released on 1 October 2007 in Europe by EMI and on 20 November 2007 in North America by Atlantic/Rhino. The 5-CD/5-DVD box set includes newly remixed versions of the albums Genesis, Invisible Touch, We Can't Dance, and ...Calling All Stations.... The fifth pair of discs includes B-side songs. Each bonus DVD features audio versions of the albums in 5.1 surround sound, as well as videos for songs from that album and its corresponding tour, new interviews, and photo galleries.

Audio formats[edit]

In the European and Japanese releases of this box set, the CDs are hybrid SACD/CDs. The SACD layer is a multichannel surround sound remix.[2]

In the Canadian and U.S. releases of this box set, standard CDs with no SACD layer are included.[3]

In all versions of the box set, the DVDs are DVD-Video format (not DVD-Audio), although they contain both audio and video tracks. These DVDs include three audio mixes: DTS 5.1-channel surround sound, Dolby Digital 5.1-channel surround sound, and Dolby Digital stereo.[4] The DTS surround sound is a slightly compressed version of the surround sound on the SACDs,[5] and the Dolby surround sound is a slightly inferior quality to the DTS.[6]

All of the audio tracks on these CDs were remixed in stereo and surround sound by producer Nick Davis.
