    Tarantino's Brief Comments on 'Kill Bill' DVD's

    What I find myself doing more and more is rent, then wait a few months for news on SE's . If nothing worthy is down the pipe I then buy a "previewed" copy cheap. I will do that with Kill Bill.

    Audio setting on Pioneer DV-563A

    Check your menu, I think there is a setting for D-mix. If I can I will have a look today.

    Rotel stereo Pre-amps

    I don't know what the 1090 or 1070 cost and aside from whatever spec diffs there are the 1090 has balanced XLR outs, but why not look at the RSP 1066 or 1068. Although they are HT processors I own the 1066 and it has fantastic stereo reproduction. As a matter of fact I listen to more stereo...

    Thunderbirds, not sure this one will work for me. (Merged)

    Man the music for the trailer sounds familiar. A lot like Gladiator and Pirates of the Carribean. I'm with Ricardo, what's with the kids.

    Audio setting on Pioneer DV-563A

    Well don't I feel silly you can indeed pass DD & DTS thru the Analogue out.:b Now that I have been set straight I did a very quick test on the diff between analogue and digital and as far as volume goes the analogue was quieter but not that much. However I have set the speaker volume in the...

    So was his name Buford. I can't imagine "The Rock" with a name like Buford.

    Reciever problems.

    I no absolutely nothing about this receiver so here's what I think. Are you using the remote to turn on the power, or the power button on the amp. Here is why I ask, my Rotel RSP 1066 has a standby mode and when setup I must turn on the power from the remote. If I use the power button on the...

    Audio setting on Pioneer DV-563A

    The 5.1 analogue outs are used for the hi-rez layers of DVD-Audio or hybrid SACD's or single layer SACD. You will not get DD or DTS out of those outputs. To get DD and DTS you will have to use the Digital coax out on the DV563-A to a coax in on the Yamaha. I also found as you did that the 5.1...

    Lord Of The Rings, The: The Motion Picture Trilogy (MERGED THREAD)

    Try this: I have a feeling that the documentary may just be a compilation of stuff from the EE's

    QUOTE: "There is a 4hr documentary "Lord Of The Rings: The Journey" coming to dvd as well. If it has all new footage I would imagine that there would be not much left other than bloopers to release." Really? I haven't heard about this. I haven't looked in a few days now but there was...

    Which DVD Players can display Component AND Composite at the same time?

    Have you tried doing this yet? I may be wrong, but I think you can do this with any player,the thing you cannot do is run the component or composite and S-Video from the same player to the same TV. If I am wrong, I 'm sure someone will correct me.

    DVD Player playback problem

    Try using an S-video cable or a composite cable to see if there is a problam with your component cables. Also if you have more than one component in on the TV try another component input.

    DVD's Have they Lost their Luster?

    I still enjoy the thrill of DVD's. Iv'e been collecting things for more than 35 years, comics, hard cover books, vinyl records, cd's, VHS, laser dics and now DVD. What I promised myself after moving from Ld to DVD was that I would only purchase a DVD that I would watch a minimum of twice per...

    DVD-Audio ?

    Forgive me if this sounds elementary but are you listening to both the Multi channel and the 2 channel in Hi-Rez or thru the digital cable. I ask this because the way I read your post is that these sound better when using Neo or 5 channel stereo which are DSP modes. If you are listening thru the...

    Surround sound hookup

    The only thing you can do is to set your single rear centered in the rear. You could also run the two surrounds in either series or parallel then you would get the right surround out of both speakers. This may however put a strain on the reciever. Lastly if the reciever has pre ins and outs you...

    general SACD question

    Therein lies the problem. If it is indeed a "New and Improved" mix as apposed to a "New and Butchered" remix, which seems to happen quite regularly now.

    general SACD question

    It would sound the same. A difference would be noted if the two CD layers were mastered differently or if the sacd used a lower generation tape.

    How do you watch TV?

    That sounds about right. As there are so many qualities of broadcast signal picking just one is not going to work very well. For me DPL II cinema works for most brodcasts but I don't have TV logic so I have no Idea what that would sound like.

    Led Zeppelin backwards satanic message?

    It is all coincidence and nothing more. If you get different people singing or speaking the same lines you will not likely get the same results. For Zep or the Beatles to get a particular sentence to sound a certain way when played backwards would have taken waay too much time and effort. Now...

    Will modern vinyl releases sound better than their CD counterpart?

    Concerning the White Stripes Elephant album I would guess (I don't have it yet) that the vinyl will probably sound better than cd as it was recorded and mixed using vintage analogue equipment. Having said that the cd will probably sound very good as well for the same reason.
