Is there a list of DVD's out there that were recorded in full bitrate DTS (if any)? Thanks
Look on www.dtsonline.com
Identical query (with answers) in this older thread. I believe the site Jeff referenced will tell you about "hi-res" 24/96 DTS releases, but I'm not sure if it distinguishes between 1,536 kbps and 754kbps DTS.
I think that a lot of the older Universal and Dreamworks DTS titles (Like Apollo 13 or Saving Private Ryan) are full-bitrate. I do know that older product from those studios often had a seperate full-bitrate DTS version that you could buy.
Private Ryan was the first half-bitrate title
Are you sure that Saving Private Ryan was the first Half rate Dvd? The reason that I ask is simply due to the fact that Universal used to release seperate DD/DTS of certain titles. I have most of those full rate titles from Universal and Dreamworks. I recall The Red Violin being the first Half Bit Rate DTS dvd, because I bought this title not knowing anything about the movie; and this was during the summer months of 1999. And I know that Saving Private Ryan came out in November 1999.
But here's something new. I know that Lions Gate is releasing the same film, but I'm not sure if it will have dts or not. Scheduled release is in May.
Yup, they may a big hullaballoo about Private Ryan at the time
Jeff is correct. Saving private ryan is half bitrate.
I've found this site to be pretty darned accurate:
is the Apollo 13 DTS in Anamorphic wide or just normal wide?
I believe it is anamorphic 2.35:1.
It is definately anamorphic...
If you are interesting in seeking out other regions there are some great full bitrate titles available elsewhere in the world too, such as:
-6th Day (Japan)
-The Sixth Sense (Japan)
-Lake Placid (Japan)
-Enemy At The Gates (UK)
-Mad Max (Australia)
Release Date for Saving Private Ryan DTS: November 4, 1999
Release Date for Red Violin DTS/DD: April 18, 2000
Perhaps Robert bought it in the summer months of 2000 rather than 1999.
BTW, I believe The Red Violin is being reissued with a reprice to a MSRP of $15 later this month. I previously saw it as a rental, but I am prepared to pounce at this new price.
