Okay, now I'm getting worried.

In the past I've mentioned on this forum how bad the audio is on the Right Stuff DVD and on the newly re-released widescreen version of Airport.

I'm bothered by the low number of people that seem to hear this; people that I would think know better. Are some of these same people saying that the new Star Trek TMP DVD sounds great? To me the sound quality on The Right Stuff and Airport is far from acceptable. Hopefully this won't be the case with this new Star Trek DVD.

I will cry if it is.

Scott don't worry the new DD track is nowhere near the tinny quality of The Right Stuff.
In regards to the LD's PCM track I always felt that the bass was WAY over emphasized on that track, the new track is much more refined as it should have been had the original sound mixers been given enough time (they were not).
However having said that I have to agree with Kevin M that the music is rather subdued or "muffled" in the spots he pointed out and in a few he didn't, it isn't as bad as all that but if you have the LD or CD soundtrack to compare it with you will notice.
Nonetheless this is a GREAT SE and well worth the money.

Tinny is an understatement. I mean it had a wierd flanging sound to during Glenn's first flight. That absolutely pissed me off. Posted Image

The old P&S version of Airport has better sound than the new widescreen version.

What the hell is it with some of these mastering jobs?
