Edit: Or possibly DTS, neither would have been lossless and DD+ should be a big improvement on what you heard in the theater. BTW how do you know it will be lossy, all it says is 5.1?
No, I'm almost positive that it was 6-track magnetic. I just placed a call to a projectionist friend of mine who is going to find out for me. If I am wrong I will stand corrected.
I know it's lossy because the back of the jacket says "Dolby Digital Plus 5.1".
I know that some around here think Warner can do no wrong, but even Universal is on the lossless bandwagon now and 100% of the titles announced by Starz/Anchor Bay are lossless. In terms of audio, Warner is near the bottom of the barrell when considering the % of titles with lossless or hi-rez.
