    I have new respect for Yamaha

    The only Yamaha receivers I didn't find bright are the new batch, and also the DSP-A1. The new batch of receivers have lost that harshness that have plagued older Yammies like the 2092, 2095, Z1, 2200, 630, and 730 which I have tried. All are great receivers, just with a bit of harsness on the...

    I have new respect for Yamaha

    I have had a Yamaha RX-V2095 since '99 and recently took it in to be serviced. I had been using it in the bedroom system after I upgraded to a B&K preamp for the theater, but I always loved this receiver which was why I took it in instead of just getting rid of it. Anyway I went ahead and bought...

    Anger Management Widescreen DVD Audio Problems?

    Jared, I think I know what you are talking about. While I wouldn't describe what I heard as "farting" I did hear an extra bit of harshness from the center channel. Kinda like a raspy, crackling sound during some loud shouting scenes.

    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...

    The Most Beautiful Films Ever Made on DVD

    Yeah way to many to mention, but a few that I use regularly: AOTC (pretty much the whole movie) The Matrix (The rain scenes like Neo under the bridge are breathtaking) FOTR Seven Years in Tibet Seven The Count of Monte Cristo and alot more that deserve mention.

    ***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.

    Coverart: Tomb Raider 2

    Very cool! Fun action movie, and Angelina is HOT!! Never thought so until this film. Walked out of X2 (bleh!) and into this one, and I'm glad I did.:)

    Artisan planning a Total Recall "Extreme Edition"

    How about an Ultimate Edition of The Arrival? That's Artisan right?

    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. :)

    Directors Your Dream DVD

    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.:)

    Starship Troopers Superbit - New reference disc

    Rob, that's cool. Everyones POV is different. I do agree though about the Fort Joe Smith scene.:)

    Starship Troopers Superbit - New reference disc

    Rob, I have: EP1 EP2 FOTR TTT Just to name a few. I do agree that the CGI was great, and ahead of it's time IMO.

    Starship Troopers Superbit - New reference disc

    In my theater it is. In comparison to TTT DVD, I had some friends over to watch it this past weekend (on loan from a friend at a video store who got their stock early) who thought the transfer was great, but still not the reference quality of Clones. To me though they are both great, and...

    Merged Stargate Ulimate edition DVD thread

    There should definitely be 2 discs. Disc 1 is the Directors Cut and Disc 2 is what we saw in the theater.:)

    My Emperor's New Groove may have just died!

    Dan, I would say it's the player that has the problem, not the disc. I don't know how many Pioneer's we had returned b/c of similar problems, but honestly it happens with every player. Anyway, if you want confirmation try taking the disc down to the place you bought it from, and playing it on...

    Starship Troopers Superbit - New reference disc

    Todd, Chris, Yeah the crackling has been there since the original DVD release, and on the SE. It's even more noticable with DTS, but don't worry, it's always been there.:)

    Starship Troopers Superbit - New reference disc

    Yeah I watched this yesterday, and while I agree it is the best presentation of this film to date, it is nowhere near Clones imo. Anyway the transfer is by itself worth the upgrade, and even though the audio is a little dated, the addition of a DTS track is the icing on the cake. I have been...

    cleaning dust off equipment

    I use Billy Bags audio duster every morning before I turn my equipment on. The duster doesn't just "spread" the dust around, it attracts it like a magnet.

    What do you use to clean you HT gear?

    Well crap! That's what I get for not doing a good enough search. Mods feel free to delete this thread, and I'll just bring the other back up again. :) Thanks for the link David.:)
