Un-official Dtv Movie Weekend

Recommended Posts

Well unrelated / very related

Shine a Light as both DTS MA and Dolby True HD

and to my ears Dolby is better in this case / this disk / my system

Of course this is music so much easier to hear differences ( more important :o )

LPCM, Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD MA should all sound the same but sometimes don't. Some setups seem to favor one over the other on some releases but not on others. I can only guess it has something to do with additional processing done on some mixes, but really it's just guess work. I have some releases where all the lossless tracks sound the same and others where there are clear differences. Go figure.

Must be as you say, depends on setup and where decoding done ...etc as should be the same. Also, as stated by Chopus, they may modify/enhance the audio or LFE when encoding to DTS-HD MA.

Personally I did not find any difference but only did a cursory listen in the music at the beginning as was done by all. I decode in the Oppo to LPCM so the AVR gets LPCM regardless which could have an impact.

Well, watched Part I and loved it. The 2.5 hours went by quick and there was no looking at the watch or such and did not take a break. Just sat there and enjoyed every minute! :D

Have to agree with reviewers that Audio and Video are reference or D@mm close to it. Listened in LPCM; and will choose DTS MA for Part II as there is consensus that it is a little fuller suggesting that Chopus is correct that they may have enhanced the LFE or such when encoding to DTS MA! :unsure:

Cinematography was excellent as was the feel of the audio in all action scenes. Both deserve 4.5 to 5 stars in my IMHO. Would also give movie 4.5 stars so we are talking somewhere between 13.5 and 14.5 stars out of 15 (audio, video and movie). :wub:

Definitely one you want in your collection. Wanted to put part 2 on immediately; but common sense prevailed (wasn't easy) and will watch tonight. Really looking forward to it!!

Just one word: amazing! Love every minute!

Cinematography, video & audio quality is excellent. A must have BR discs!

Not sure what to cut in the "compressed" version in the cinema...

Nerds.

Nice.

And for your information, sun goes down around 6pm, movie time for me starts around 8:30 once the kids are asleep.

+1 and can only say number 2 was as good as number 1 and the audio/lfe in the final battle scenes was outstanding.

Are you joking?

Are you seriously labelling me a troll?

For calling you on what could easily be labelled a trolling post?

OK, maybe it was an attempt at humour.

If so, the joke really didn't work.
