This is rather significant since Universal has been a big player so far with HD-DVD.

Finally. Posted Image While the review here states End of Days has a somewhat dull sound design. The source is the key here. But at least we know now that while Universal has been HUGE for HD-DVD with releases and it's new HD interactivity, they are now doing Dolby TrueHD.


Salivating thinking about the plethora of Universal titles....(should have been on Serenity though Posted Image.)

This needs to become the standard for Universal.

Good job! Posted Image

I just received this disc and noticed the TruHD 5.1. In addition, Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas also lists TruHD 5.1 on the back of the disc. I was pleasantly surprised as I didn't expect either! Posted Image

Are they 16 bit (downconvert) or 24 bit (studio master grade)?

Do any of the TrueHD titles have 24 bits? I have only 2 True HD titles, Training Day & The Perfect Storm and I don't believe these are 24 bits.

How do we know the studio didn't master at 16bit?
"Did you know that more people are murdered at 92 degrees Fahrenheit than any other temperature? I read an article once. Lower temperatures, people are easy-going, over 92 and it's too hot to move, but just 92, people get irritable."
