    I was thinking about getting this disc, but would like to know if it's good or not. Anyone heard it? How's the surround use and bass?

    Thanks Dan, thats kind of what I thought but couldn't find any reviews for it. I don't have and ICBM so I can't hear DVD-A bass as was intended, which really sucks. But I do have an Acoustic Research ARS-500 and it has handled everything I've thrown at it with authority. [​IMG] I'll have to pick it up.

    I have the disc, and well i Loved hybrid theory, but i cant stand this one, the remixing is pretty heavy, the original songs are not really well represented by this, but if you are into remixing then you will probably like it.

    I've only heard the Dolby Digital 5.1 version of the disc. It has a lot of bass, but because it's DD5.1 my reciever's bass management still works so my speakers aren't at risk.

    Travis,

    Listen to it using the DD5.1. Then your bass management will work just fine. I think the disc is only at 48/24 anyhow. You're probably not losing much listening to the DD5.1 version.

    Ah but DD isn't even as good as CD, and 48/24 is still better than cd.

    Well DD is ALOT more compressed than a cd, the compression has to hurt the quality. I mean think about it DD is more compressed than DTS, and DTS can fit 5.1 channels on a cd while a cd can only fit 2 channels on a disc, so DD has to be allot more compressed, and at its best cd is 44.1kHz and 16 bit which is noticably less than 48/24.

    I feel that the 48/24 is significantly better than the DD. Plus, why listen to DVD-A discs with an appropriate player on DD(yes, I know about the bass mismanagement)[​IMG]

    Thanks for the explaination Seth, but I really do ahve to disagree, you CANNOT get more than what you put in.

    its like having a number 10.000001 thats the original, it gets compressed to 10.0 because of space constraints, and who notices the 00001. so then you use some fancy algorithm to recreat 10.000000008 yep it sure does ahve more detail there, more bits longer more PRECISE number, but its not more accurate and really accuracy is what you want.

    and I havent listend too reanimation much, but i can gurantee you that I hear a huge ammount more detail in my Metallica Black album on DVD-A and CD than i do in DD

    anyway DD 5.1 might be good at compression but compression is still compression and especially when something is compressed that much you loose quality. the DVD-A track is noticably better then the DD track.
