the following DVDs share a comon fault : anger management identity tears of the sun in quiet scenes, the center channel of the audio produces an annoying crackling effect during dialogue. ok, so it's probably there during the louder scenes, but for obvious reasons it's not audible. now, granted it is subtle, which explains why many haven't picked up on it, but i promise you, it is there. it has been brought up by a few on the internet, with one thread being in this sites software forum : http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htfo...hreadid=159792 and another one on the AVS forum. i urge you to please look into this matter (i make the assumption that representatives from Columbia read this forum) before an ever increasing number of your DVDs are released onto the market with this flaw. it spoils my (and others) enjoyment of these films. however small this flaw may be in the grand scheme of things, it still shouldn't be there. it's not there on other studios dvds, so it shouldn't be on yours. with over 1400 dvds (many from you), these new dvds are the only ones i have this problem with. thank-you.
