STAR WARS: Episode II I have returned this DVD three times, and I continute to receive the same effect. This is the worst DVD I have ever listened too. The background noise behind people's (human, not robots or creatures generally) voices is unbearable. I own a Klipsch reference system powered by a Sony STR-DE675. (I don't want to hear about my amp, I picked it up new for $200 with a 4 year BB warranty, not bad for something cheap and it works until I purchase better) I've listened to a lot of DVDs, and I've never had this problem. I just watched Lord of the Rings (simply amazing); and I did not notice any problems. I viewed the DVD using sony's multiple sound modes (I keep mine normal because I don't like manufactures manipulating the original track). I also played it in stereo: same problem. I then put it on my computer and listened with headphones and through the speakers...just as bad. It sounds its worst whenever Anakin and Palpatine talk. The dialogue exchange between Anakin/Obi and Queen Amidala in the beginning of the movie is one part that sounds especially bad. At some points, I hear a piercing sound as if someone placed a microphone by an amp. I can hear it at any volume, loud or moderate. I'm uncertain of the problem, but I can't enjoy this movie sounding like that. Everything was crystal clear, even the voices; but that "room noise" that shuts on and off throughout the movie whenever some people talk and the "hissing" makes me cringe. If anyone can suggest something, or has heard this as well, please help out. Thanks.
