    I just finished watching the anime film "Metropolis" on DVD.

    I thought it was a great movie, and the DTS track was amazing.

    Much better than either the english or japenese DD 5.1

    And to the fact i do not use Dynamic Range compression!.

    And it sounds like full bitrate DTS track were anything is audible even at low volume.

    Is it full bitrate?

    But if it isn´t it definetly is the best DTS track i have ever heard on DVD.

    Don't think so. I got the impression that all DTS tracks nowadays are half-rate. But I'm not 100% certain however... [​IMG]

    I just checked this out on my PC and it is in fact 768Kbps. So it's half bitrate.

    Anyways, it sounds awesome!.

    It´s the best half-bitrate DTS track i have heard on DVD.

    Up there with The Fast and the Furious, The Haunting and Saving Private Ryan.

    Adding to my previous post...

    The new Millennium Edition of "Re-Animator" includes a 1509 kbps full bitrate DTS soundtrack.
