    Earlier this year I heard some rumbles that LucasFilm was compiling THX Trailers, documentary footage, and special effects segments as the contents for a new THX demo disc. All I can find now is numerous listings on eBay for a now available THX Ultimate Demo Disc. Is LucasFilm going to make it available as a tie-in with Star Wars EP2 on DVD for consumers soon. I would much rather make my car payment next month than buy a copy off eBay. Anyone care to add to this thread?

    They'll never sell it. It's just another THX demo disc that you can only get if you work in high-end A/V sales, know someone who knows someone or get raped on Ebay for.

    Compared to the demo discs from the past, the THX Ultimate demo DVD is a "must have" if you're in to this sort of stuff.

    Yes, I paid a ridiculously high price for one at ebay. After going through it, I can tell you its worth it!! The THX WOW! is in 5.1 DD/DTS. It also has flags for DD-EX and DTS-ES.

    If you really want one, ebay is your best bet. Even if you go to your dealer and ask for one, chances are slim he/she will give you one. I already tried and was told they are not going to give up the copies they have.

    What exactly was the old THX DVD called? I just got one off eBay for $20 that's called "LucasFilm THX Surround EX Demo 6.1/7.1", is that the one you're talking about? I also got the WOW! LD demo for $65 (sealed).

    Besides the Ultimate Demo disc, I also have the LUCASFILM THX SURROUND EX DEMONSTRATION DISC. I has the Tex trailer, Broadway 2000, Jungle Sounds, and few trailers. Honeslty, nothing too amazing. The Ultimate Demo disc has all that and more. I think I got it along with THE HAUNTING DTS as part of a dealer promo.

    I could not justify spending $300.00 for a dvd demo or any dvd for that matter, even if I was a millionare. I have been a huge fan of good picture and sound long before digital came along and spent a lot of money on special edition laserdiscs but to me $300.00 on a dvd no matter how good, it's an insult to the human kind.
