For those that have done any recording in their lives, you will know what I mean when I say the audio is "burnt". It's a slang term used when the input level of a recording is set too high, thus you get a little "break-up" of the audio in the upper frequencies on playback. I have three DVD TV series that this is a problem. The first time I noticed it was on "Firefly". All through the series, I would occasionally hear "burnt" audio mainly in the center channel. To make sure it wasn't a problem with my system, I took the disk over to my neighbor's house, and we listened to it on his system. It did the same thing, at the same spots. Of course, after he got a glimps of "Firefly", I didn't get my disks back for a month (He insisted on borrowing it, so he could watch it). But, I digress. Back to the topic, I've recently had the same problem showing up on Voyager, Season's 6 & 7. And now, on Season 3 of "24". I don't know if the quality control is starting to go to crap, or if someone's not paying attention to the record levels, or what. But, since it's seems to becoming more and more prevalent, I thought I post and see if anyone else has noticed this.
