When I select "Info" on my Sony Blu-Ray player, the on-screen audio readout says "1: English Dolby TrueHD 5.1ch 96kHz". The original disc said "48kHz". Also, my Yamaha amplifier's "Signal Info: Audio" on-screen readout says "FORMAT Dolby TrueHD. SAMPLING 96kHz", instead of "48kHz". If you can access such info on your equipment, you'll be able to tell right away.
Well this is what I'm seeing on the Onkyo TH SR-875.
Bluray players Phillips BDP7300 and Sony BDP-S550 now playing THE RIGHT STUFF "70mm six-track Dolby Stereo Digital TrueHD," I think that sounds.
"I, for one, do not intend to go to sleep by light of Communist moon"
"Get that moron off of there!"
"You mean for this space race you don't want our best pilots?"
"I didn't say that. We want the best pilots that we can get."
"Hey." "Y'all want some whiskey?"
"No, thanks, Fred." "Just a little coffee."
-"I'd like a Coca-Cola".
"Mm-hm, In a clean glass."
"Hey, Hot Dog, what the hell's "astronaut" mean anyway?"
"Star voyager Gus Grissom." Yeah, I kinder like the sound of that."
The film has suspense thrills and humour and memorable, Bill Conti, score.
The Dolby mix is fantastic. Bought a Hi-Fi VHS rental years ago as after renting and saw it for sale later on, I still have the VHS, Once owned Laserdisc letterbox W/S pressing and sold it, d'oh years ago for the DVD first edition, then gave it to my dad a few years later when there was special edition DVD release that I still have but don't play no more expect for the extras. The bluray I have is just bare bones as I didn't want to spend the extra for extras that are more less the same as the SE DVD. Plus bonus more extras on youtube about the space race and all.
I'll check the settings on BDP-S550. (edit) Checked settings and set at 24/96Khz.

Bar scene Chapter 23, 1hr.31 mins onwards for short while. Not sure if this is software or actual issue on the disc or again software of the AVC as I noticed many discs are encoded with different video coding and I have noticed the annoying colour shifting on STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS. I forget if its AVC or whatever but its annoying to watching blue colour shirts turning turquoise.

Now that was such a good chosen bit of classical music put to the film, on John Glen, flight into space. [/color]

I like it. Feels great.[/color]
Sounds cool when Glen is activating the space craft with switches being switched on, stages left and right. Then looking upwards at the window, "whew" hope this flies.The the sudden BURST of the rockets engaging and the hod down bolt arms released letting her fly. The first stage separation gives me a jolt that rocks me back in the rocker seat.
Liked when the Bill Conti, score takes over at 2:30:02 gives the scene some grace as Glen whooshes around the Earth, at 17,500MPH.
Are movies Too Loud? The Right Stuff is mentioned as one of those being loud.
Reading about Dolby TrueHD 96kHz
I came across this thread and I agree with the comments. Its marketing. I hate to know what it can do to STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS that was shockingly far too loud at 24/48KHz, if not ruined the film, along with all the lens flares.
THE RIGHT STUFF sounds fine as it is. Maybe a bluray vs 70mm Dolby print side by side in cinema to see what it shows up on test gear as the surrounds? Was the 70mm released with stereo surrounds or mono surrounds? As the early DVD release is same with stereo surrounds. Most 70mm Dolby prints only small handful had stereo surrounds released on them. So was this remixed late '90's.
If re-mixed it was done very well as I have heard worst ones on "Blue Thunder" and "2010" that has very bad remixing that sounds like it was processed with PLII movie mode.
Its one of the conspiracies that's on my mind.
