    So... many... pictures....

    Have you checked if the R3 version is coded R0? I say this because every Korean DVD (R3) I own is NTSC-R0-coded.

    William,

    So the R3 version is NTSC but I'd still need a region-free player to play it since it's not R0?

    How does the DTS sound? Have you had a chance to compare to the 5.1 DD R1 version? Have you read my reveiw? Bascially I love the sound of the 5.1 DD mix (both of them) on the R1 version but I can't help but imagine how the enhanced mix might sound even smoother and more refined in DTS...oohhhhh [​IMG]

    GREAT screen-shots!!!

    Thanks so much for posting this!!!

    Hi,DaViD

    The R3 version is NTSC certainly. I think a region-free player is necessary.

    DTS track sound great but i like the sound of the enhanced home theater DD 5.1 on the R1 version.


    p.s. do you mind if I link to your thread and some of your screen-shots in my R1 review thread?
