I remember seeing this movie at my Local Theater... I was blown away by the dynamic range ans bass level this movie had. With PCM experience BLU-RAY enthousiasts can now appreciate all the nuance, dynamic range, bass outpout that new movie soundtracks can deliver ! The reign of DTS laserdics as the format of choice for best sound is severely compromised. I would like to compare this PCM soundtrack with DOLBY TRUE HD or DTS-HD just to see which encoding is the best ! Truly a DEMO HD soundtrack !!
Can"t wait to hear DD+ and DTHD at their full resolution !

Bring us HDMI 1.3 equipped receivers fast !!!

Xavier, it must sound the same. Sorry for being repetitive, but that is true. Posted Image I speak with a fair amount of experience with lossless codecs (all the encoding and decoding and bit-by-bit checking I'm tired of).

Now if Dolby TrueHD adds any sort of post-processing to the lossless track (such as Dial Norm) then please let us all call the police, since that is a true crime against audiophilic experience. Posted Image
