    is trueDD and DTS-HD worth the upgrade?

    I guess I assumed that given the experience of most listeners on a forum like this, those factors would be a given. I was thinking more along the lines of "everything else being equal" what does a DD soundtrack sound like versus the TrueHD version... like A vs. B on the same system. My fear...

    is trueDD and DTS-HD worth the upgrade?

    I agree... for all the talk about new processors and receivers, there's very little (or no) talk about how these formats sound compared to regular DD and DTS. HDMI switching and all these "new" features are hardly worth it if in the end the audio sounds virtually the same as before.

    HDMI input/output on AV Receiver

    I think some newer receivers and pre-amps convert everything to HDMI. Therefore you could connect your VCR and Laserdisc or anything else you have to your receiver/pre-pro and have just the one output to the display/tv.

    Disney's Sky High

    Watched this on DVD last night... fun family film. However, there seemed to be a complete lack of LFE. I even had to check to make sure my sub was turned on. Could this be an authoring error? Anyone else have the same observations? There were several scenes with rockets or people punching the...

    Franz Ferdinand Dual Disc

    OK, I'm a bit annoyed by two things... my own stupidity, and misleading labelling. I bought the dualdisc version of FF's new album, because the back said "DVD Side: Entire album in Enhanced Stereo". Now, on the few other Dualdiscs I own, this means DVD-A. If I had looked more closely however, I...

    Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban DVD Glitch Thread (Please Read)

    I got the same canned reply about returning the disc. I have yet to do so... why return it until we know they have replacements available? I'm not confident that they will offer replacements... the sales numbers on this title were/are enormous. It would be a huge effort to replace them all...

    The Upgraded Anthem AVM-20 2.1

    Anyone care to speculate on price for this upgrade? I'm trying to decide what I would actually consider paying for these upgrades... I might be willing to pay about $1000CDN if it included upgraded DAC's (which I suspect may be necessary to do SACD via firewire). But even that strikes me as...

    spl corection for non radio shack meters

    This is from my Revel B15 LFO Software .ini file. It includes the corrections for Radio Shack Analog and Digital... and also lists the following for "other". [Other "C-Weighted" Sound Level Meter] 20=6.2 21=5.7 22=5.3 24=4.9 25=4.4 27=4.0 28=3.7 30=3.3 32=3.0 34=2.8 36=2.5...

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED).

    I have emailed WB about the wavy lines in dark scenes. We'll see if they respond (I doubt it).

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED).

    I noticed the wavy lines in the blackness immediately. I actually swapped out the disc to try the Matrix just to see if I had some new intereference in my system. It is definitely the disc. I didn't note specific times, but it was all over the first ten minutes of the film when Harry runs away...

    Any word on Prologic IIx for the D1/AVM20/AVM30? It's been several weeks since we've heard anything...

    The Upgraded Anthem AVM-20 2.1

    I just upgraded to 2.14 (yeah, I'm slow. heh) Everything seems to be working, but I was annoyed that the program kept going to "not responding" on my laptop during the "verifying flash" phase. I started the process over about 5 times and it froze every time. Strangely, when I turned the AVM20...
