    Madonna's new DVD has a DTS 5.1 audio track. It is not mentioned anywhere on the case with the DTS logo or text.
    The DTS track sounds great.

    I noticed this also when I started the disc up. I ended up staying up till almost 3:00 AM watching it. It's a terrific concert and I agree, the DTS sound is fantastic.
    Cheers!

    I'm bummed that it's not anamorphic. Anyone watch this on a 16X9?? If so, how's the video quality, blown up on your 16X9 set??

    Was this the same concert that was on HBO last year? if so, maybe that's why it's full screen.

    It is the HBO show, but if I remember right it was shot HD, which would mean a 16X9 was an option for them to use.

    DTS? Well why didn't they say so? This goes from a pass to a buy!

    The concert is 4:3. [​IMG] I have a 55" 16:9 RPTV set and thought everything looked pretty good, of course due to the extremes of the lighting design, there are instances when things aren't as clear as they could be. I viewed it in the PANORAMA mode on my set (which is for stretching 4:3 material to fill the screen). Still, it's a nice transfer and the DTS sound is terrific.
    The track list is as follows:
    Drowned World/Substitute For Love
    Impressive Instant
    Candy Perfume Girl
    Beautiful Stranger
    Ray of Light
    Paradise (Not For Me)
    Frozen
    "Open Your Heart" Swell
    Nobody's Perfect
    Mer Girl, Part I
    Sky Fits Heaven
    Mer Girl, Part II
    I Deserve It
    Human Nature
    The Funny Song
    Secret
    Gone
    Don't Cry for Me Argentina (Instrumental)
    Lo Que Siente La Mujer
    (What It Feels Like for A Girl)
    La Isla Bonita
    Holiday
    Music
    The disc also has a nice photo gallery with a quite a few publicity photos of Maddy.
    Cheers!

    A Tori DVD would be sweet! I have all of the VHS releases but have been pining to have them on DVD.
    A Tori compilation DVD was planned about a year or so ago, though it was cancelled when she became involved in it. After having a baby and recording STRANGE LITTLE GIRLS it looks like it'll be a while before we see anything.
    Cheers!

    Just wanted to compare notes on the volume level of this DVD, I find it impossible to listen to the Dolby 5.1 track at reference level (incredibly bright and harsh sounding), where my other concert discs, including Madonna's "Girlie Show" are all quite comfortable at that level. Heck, even at -8 db below reference, this disc is louder than the actual live show. (I was at the U.S. opening date in Philadelphia).
