    Hi there, I don't know if this has been mentioned before, the search function didn't give me any such results:

    I just wanted to know if anyone has got this set?
    the reason I ask is that I found that every few minutes there's a "pop" in the audio. these glitches are not mentioned in the reviews except for this one:

    The pops have been there since the first South park discs released. It's wildly theorized they're on the master tapes

    Yes. The first season was done very crudely. In fact, the first episode was still done with carboard cut outs. I highly doubt the audio is in any better shape than the way it is on the DVD's.

    I'm still wondering about this- as it seems MUCH more obvious on some systems than others. I've been meaning to rip the AC-3 tracks and look them over- but haven't had time. If someone has a specific passage, episode, and time code that a pop is present and repeatable- post here and I'll look at the files.

    Thank you!!
    I was just surprised that nobody from the reviewers mentioned it.
    Then I thought I should have bought the (more expensive) R2 but if they are all the same (coz of the master tapes)
    But If it is so widely spread I'll have to live with it.
    Funny you mention that with the cardboard, Mark.
    I was watching the first one and was surprised that there was that extensive halo effect, then I thought now has to be intentional, but why now I know[​IMG]
    thanks

    PS no I didn't see it before (it's difficult to watch south park in Luxembourg if you don't want to hear the German dub)
