    I just got my copy of Sound & Vision and there is an advertisement for T-3 on dvd in there. The Special Features read like this. Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack for Maximum Home Theatre Impact. Is this just a gimmicky marketing thing or is this Warner Brothers version of Disneys Enhanced for Home Theater performance like on the Lion King dvd? If it is just plain old Dolby Digital and nothing else this kind of advertising gets me steamed!!!!! [​IMG] I mean, what is so "SPECIAL" about Dolby Digital. It is on every newer dvd title.

    Well, if they did for Lion King, why not T-3, to me don't matter as long as I can get it for the cheap release price which is usually less that 17.00.

    I saw T3 at the stadium cinema here in my town and it was by far the LOUDEST movie I've ever heard at a theater. I'm friends with the manager and he said that the studio instructed him(and all other theaters showing it for that matter) to crank the volume to the max for T3 to show off the film's sound mix. To be perfectly honest, it was almost unbearable and while the film did boast very impressive sound I'm wondering how it will translate to DVD. I hope it's on par with the T2 soundtrack.

    T3 did boast phenomenal sound when I saw it - better than other recent action movies I have seen at this theater. I too am curious how the DVD will sound.

    We never cranked our systems past what we usually do, but T3 was definitely one of the loudest films I've heard in recent memory. And it wasn't bad loud, it was clear and good LOUD! Let's hope the DVD is the same.

    Well, call me crazy, but the DTS ES on the T2 Ultimate Edition DVD sounds pretty damn good to me.

    I almost always choose DTS over DD, but that disc is the rarest of the rare of DVDs, where the DD actually sounds better, at least in my opinion, of course. [​IMG]

    Clearly, the T2 Ultimate Edition video was overly compressed and looked like crap, in my opinion. The restoration and leaving out the DTS track so the video had more bits made the Extreme Edition look so very much better. It's nearly a perfect transfer now. And, the Dolby Digital track sounds great -- better than the DTS track on the UE, in my opinion. I'm sure T3 will look and sound even slightly better (not sure it can sound much better than T2:EE).

    Yeah, I was wondering how long it would take before the anti-DTS crowd descended onto this thread. [​IMG]
