Any ideas where I may find this set with dolby digital other than Ebay?
If you're looking for the original versions of the Star Wars Trilogy, they only released them with PCM Dolby Surround soundtracks (and very good ones too). The Special Editions all have Dolby Digital however.
I don't know where to check for laserdisc sales anymore.
I see that Ken Cranes no longer sell LD's
The PCM Dolby surround soundtracks on my original STAR WARS TRILOGY definitive box set sound very very good!
This site: http://www.rtr.com/~jeff/index.asp seems very good at keeping track of laserdisc sales on different sites. try that.
I have the original Star Wars trilogy THX certified for sale for $50.00 which includes shipping. This version was released in Dolby Surround. Don't be mislead the audio mix is excelelnt with lots of base, much superior than your normal Dolby Surround. The LD's and covers are in excellent shape. I can be reached at [email protected]
I have both sets. To be honest, I actually find the PCM to have better sound and picture(SE looks quite faded).
I haven't watched em in a while though. Maybe I should re-evaluate 'em.
I prefer the originals.
However, the picture and audio is better on the SEs.
Too bad I cannot stomach some of the scenes they changed....I just use my SEs to show off certain 5.1 scenes.
No way in hell I could watch an SE all the way through. There are just too many horrible changes.
Get both versions!
Since you're in Austin, you don't have to go far to find these: Used copies are at the Half Price books on South Lamar. I think they're $14.98 each. If they're not the version you want, you could check the other stores on Guadalupe and Research Blvd. Good luck!
Thanks GeorgeRF for the info. Please e-mail me or post how you found the info. I will be going later on tonight to check both half price bookstores.
Ian--I walked in the store and looked on the shelf. (Tuscaloosa is home, but I'm in Austin for a few days.) The HalfPrice website doesn't appear to list any laserdisks, so I don't know any other way to find out what they've got in stock. Hope you found the disks you wanted!
