[font="arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"]Interesting and thrilling titles, to be sure, but why offer DTS HD MA as well as Dolby True Hd together with PCM, since it's all the same in stereo? Dts and Dolby are just containers for the uncompressed PCM, after all, or am I missing something here?[/font]
[font="arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"]I'm reading mildly conflicting info about whether we're going to get 5.1 on (m)any of these releases. I haven't watched it yet, but this video interview of a UMG exec supposedly includes a comment (that sounds very "MoFi" to me) essentially saying that if it wasn't originally recorded in 5.1 there would be no surround on the BD-A (which raises the still unanswered question about whether that means they will not be putting 5.1 on these BD-As even if UMG themselves have previously released the title on SA-CD/DVD-A in 5.1). I think we have to wait until we get more tech specs on these releases.[/font]
[font="arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"]As far as the blurb I think you're referring to from the "Super Deluxe Edition" link I posted, I just think the following is poorly written on writer Paul SInclair's part: ". . . [color=rgb(51,51,51);]these forthcoming blu-ray audio reissues will offer no video content, [/color][color=rgb(51,51,51);]just three hi-res stereo audio options: Full DTS Master Audio, PCM (Pulse Control Modulation uncompressed Sound) or Dolby True HD." He says they will offer three stereo options (which is not my tentative understanding) but then when he lists them he uses the word "or." My current, tentative understanding is that the discs will always include high rez PCM stereo. IF there is surround, it will be DTS HD-MA and/or Dolby TrueHD.[/color][/font]
