    I have new respect for Yamaha

    The only Yamaha receivers I didn't find bright are the new batch, and also the DSP-A1.

Anyway I went ahead and bought...

    Anger Management Widescreen DVD Audio Problems?

    Did anyone upgrade their Gattica to Superbit?

    Agreed with Matt. The Gattaca SB version is far better not only visualy, but fidelity wise too with the added DTS track. As a person who has OWNED both the SB version is worth the upgrade, by far.:)

    ***Official Digital Video Essentials Discussion Thread***

    MatthewW, yeah I had the same thing happen with the sub. I went ahead and tried the new setting, but it just sounded incredibly week. I also noticed the DD/DTS sub settings were a little farther apart than what I had using the S&V setup disc. DTS sub setting was +7 on S&V and +13 with DVE higher...

    ***Official LOTR: The Two Towers DVD Discussion Thread*** -- All Posts Here; NO EXCEPTIONS

    Yeah, no problems here either using Mits WS65 and Tosh SD-9200. I thought for sure it would have appeared on my POS DVD player, but no.

    What are some upcoming US Superbit releases?

    I have a feeling Godzilla will be in the next batch of SB releases. Hope I'm wrong. Tears of the Sun would be cool.

    Spider-Man Superbit?

    Yeah, I hope they do this too. I won't sell my current copy though, I'll just add it to the kids library.:)

    A very quick question about X-MEN 1.5's video

    No doubt. The DD on the first release was great, but DTS on the 1.5 disc kicks ass. Definitely the preferred version.

    DTS and DD DVD Movie Releases

    In a perfect world they would go back to dual releases, and just limit the number of any movie released on DVD with DTS, just for us HT enthusiasts who prefer the higher fidelity of superior DTS sound. :)

    Actually, I already have 3 dream DVD's. Star Wars Eps 1&2 and The Matrix. The only thing better would be Reloaded, Revolutions, and EP3 when they are released.:)
