Hello, First off if this list already exists please point me in the right direction, or if this post is in the wrong forum please feel free to move it. --- What are some of the best DVD scenes sounds for testing surround sound and speakers quality? I am about to go out and review a bunch of different speakers systems this weekend and I was wondering which DVD titles should take along with me for comparison? What I did are some good movie examples of: 1- Environmental sound (scenes which engulf you on all sides, like a storm) 2- Transitional sound (scenes where the sound moves from right to left or visa versa) 3- Clean deep bass (scenes where you feel the sounds as well as hear them) 4- Depth (scenes where the sound moves from the front speakers over your head and fades to the back) 5- Treble/Tweeter test (scenes where the sound will really test speakers high end spectrums) 6- Vocal tests (scenes where vocals tracks should be heard clean and clear above everything else) 7- Any others examples (I am a HT newb so I am sure I missed something) Here is an example of what I mean (I got it from this forum): Clean deep bass - "Pearl Harbour" (when the bomb is dropped on the Arizona) I hope that we can build a DVD list that everyone will find useful when shopping for HT equipment. Should I worry about all the DVDs having THX and DTS encoding or is Dolby Digtal 5.1 enough? Thanks in advance!
