CD Japan is advertising that their upcoming R2 version of this 1981 classic boasts an English Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack. http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=GXBA-1806 This sucks for R1 fans without an all-region player though. But it's good to know that there is a DD 5.1 version out there for those that want it. CONAN THE BARABARIAN, with its regal score, is a movie that screams out for DD 5.1 or DTS soundtrack. Universal released it in twice with mono sound claiming they could never had the resources to do a DD 5.1 sound mix. Looks like somebody in the industry did it and now they look like fools.
