    Last month, Dolby Laboratories announced enhancements to its loseless audio codec for Blu-ray authoring that can now deliver a full-range high-definition surround sound experience ensuring optimum performance from today's advanced A/V receivers and Blu-ray Disc players (READ MORE ON HTF).
    [VIDEO]http-~~-//vimeo.com/42325868[/VIDEO]
    Dolby wanted to let a couple of lucky HTF members experience the enhanced technology firsthand by giving away two copies of the Blu-ray. All you have to do is reply within this thread with the answers to the following 3 questions:
    1. How many Blu-rays do you purchase each month? (None, 1-5, 5-10, 10+)
    2. Which genre of Blu-Rays do you mostly purchase? (Comedy, Drama, Horror, Musicals, Documentaries, TV)
    3. Prior to reading about it today, were you familiar with Dolby 96k upsampling as a new and enhanced feature of TrueHD? (Yes, No)
    Replies must be posted before midnight PST on July 8, 2012. Special thanks to our sponsor Dolby for the opportunity, and good luck!
    Full terms and conditions are posted here.

    I hope I am allowed to have two categories for question 2.
    Bigshot: According to Amazon, the disc features violinist Itzhak Perlman performing Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E minor. The concert opens with Aaron Copland's vivid portrayal of American prairie life, the Billy the Kid ballet suite and concludes with Britten's orchestral showpiece The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra. Capping off the concert is an encore of Bay Area composer John Adams' Short Ride in a Fast Machine featuring moving images of San Francisco projected throughout Davies Symphony Hall. San Francisco Symphony at 100 also includes historical documentary features narrated by Amy Tan highlighting the orchestra's early beginnings, its rich history of touring and its commitment to young people and innovations in media.
