As happy as I was to get this title on DVD the sound really pissed me off. I played it on 3 different players all getting the same effect. I realize it's an old made for TV movie with a monaural soundtrack. That's fine and that's not what I'm bitching about. Because of it's heritage I would only expect mono sound and not much else. It seems that some DVD releases end up with an audio artifact that I can only describe as a metallic, reverberation effect on (usually) sound effects but sometimes on actor's voices. This isn't the first time I've heard this either. It's also present on Star Trek III Search for Spock but only shows up once or twice. The Day AFter has this throughout the entire movie. I've heard other copies of The Day After in the form of VHS hi-fi and never heard that damned metallic sounding reverb. What I find even more disturbing is that no one ever seems to mention anything about it. Is it not being noticed? Is it also a side effect of DVD's AC-3 audio? I've never heard it on releases of recent movies, only on older ones. I really hope that others have heard this too. My copy of The Right Stuff has simular problems with it's audio and a person on this board verified that the newly released 2 disc set of The Right Stuff also has the same audio problem. For me to tell anyone here that lousy audio can help destroy the pleasure derived from watching a movie would preaching to the converted.
