    You use the term “cash cow” way too much! :D

    They must put all the orders in a hat, shake them up and pick them out, one by one. :D

    We’re any of your titles not it stock? Because Kino doesn‘t do partial shipments.

    Funny you should ask, I just got a notice mine shipped today. I placed the order on October 7th. It’s a big one, 15 titles.

    You were probably searching Clockmaker as two words. Kino’s search engine is not intuitive when it comes to spelling.

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    I decided to continue the discussion about the possible aspect ratio of To Hell and Back here rather than to risk it by continuing in the announcements thread. I popped in the DVD to see if maybe I could get a clue as to what the intended aspect ratio might actually be. First off, the DVD is of...

    Well, here’s a nice surprise. Received my order today and both Crossed Swords and Pillars of the Sky ARE in stereo. Kudos to Kino on that! It is just so annoying that so many online reviewers can’t tell the difference between stereo and dual mono. Now I kind of wish I had taken a chance on...

    I’m just about to place my order in the “June Swoon” sale. I’ve already eliminated two titles from my cart because with further research I found that they suffered from Kino audio downmixing syndrome. Life With Mikey is 2.0 while it’s 5.1 on iTunes, so someday maybe the digital will go on sale...

    I hear you. I'm not exactly going to make a killing on this sale either. There are about 25 KL titles on my wishlist (most of which were released in the last 6 months) and only three of them are on sale: Horizons West, Quantez, Crossed Swords, and Western Classics Vol 2. There may be a few...

    You can all speculate to your heart’s content, but I’m still waiting for the Kino sale we were promised would happen in June. I really do need to rack up some more debt!

    I was delaying placing my order because I wanted to delay the charge to my credit card as long as possible. I guess maybe I need not have worried about that! :emoji_astonished:

    Unfortunately Kino has a poor track record on this issue. Luckily those are three titles I’m not interested in. However two other titles I did buy were also erroneously mono: The Falcon and the Snowman and Taras Bulba .

    Well here’s a nice surprise. I just got They Shoot Horses, Don’t They? from an Amazon Black Friday lightning deal and this Blu-ray has the film’s soundtrack in stereo! I believe this is the first time the stereo sound has been available on home video. Usually Kino is guilty of the opposite...

    You do realize that From Noon Till Three is available on Blu-ray from Twilight Time, right?

    Yes I'm sure a lot of titles that I ordered were in stock at the beginning of the sale. I waited until the last day of the sale to place my order.

    I got my shipment from the Kino Lorber Launch sale today. As others have reported, it was only a partial shipment as the website evidently has no way of letting us know what is back ordered. However at least they annotated on the invoice with a highlighter so I would know what's what.

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    Okay, I've received my copy of A Farewell to Arms and can now safely say it is STEREO. While the 3.0 mix from the DVD would have been preferable, we can at least be thankful that it isn't mono. The best way to replicate the 3 channel mix is to set your receiver to turn off the rear channels and...

    Since this is the thread we're allowed to be critical in, there is a review up for A Farewell to Arms and once again a 3.0 channel mix (as was on the DVD) has been downmixed to 2.0. The reviewer fails to tell us whether it is 2.0 mono or 2.0 stereo. I've got my fingers crossed that it is stereo...

    A big score for Kino Lorber to get A Child is Waiting. I've been hoping for that one on Blu-ray for years. Someday I hope to own all of Garland's work on Blu-ray.

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    That is awsome to hear that comparison video. That is absolutely a genuine stereo track. I've been quite disappointed in how many Blu-rays are getting released that are dropping the stereo tracks. Luckily there aren't too many like this which was originally released in stereo. Most cases are...
