The English DTS soundtrack for Jurassic Park 1 and 2 are exclusively remixed for R6 editions.
below is bit-rate chart for Jurassic 1.
disc capacity: 7.82GB
DD5.1 English 448kbps
DD5.1 Mandarin 448kbps
DTS English 768kbps
PAL Anamorphic Widescreen
Disc mastered by Sony Music in Shanghai (inner rings shows IFPI LC20).
I heard that the source of this release is specially prepare exclusively for R6 market, nothing to do with other PAL release or Superbit. But it is the best release ever in the world according to some reviewers.
Standard recommended retail price: 22 yuan (USD 2.8)
Price may varies from place to place.
In Southern China, price around 24 to 28
In Northern China, price around 19 to 24.
More to say...
Popular pirated Jurassic Park DVD in China mostly copied from Japanese R2 Superbit. So Universal Pictures makes a better Region 6 version to battle pirated Japanese R2 superbit
The DVD format is dual-layer single sided, also known as DVD-9,
Warner put DVD-9 on cover to emphasize the superior quality just like what priated DVD do for years.
Chinese consumers believe that DVD-9 means great picture. Most of them don't understand what DVD-9, DVD-5, DVD-10, DVD-18 means. (dual-layer single sided, single-layer single sided, single layer dual sided, dual-layer dual sided respectively)
Many European R2 and Asia R3 DVD also use the term "DVD-9" but usually print it on back of DVD case not in front.

When you purchase Hollywood R6 DVD, you only buy those distributed by following distributors, do NOT buy others.
