hey guys saw this recently at a local shop by me this weekend,dont know how rare this is or if anybody wants it.Its a little pricey @ 24.99 but some you guys cant seem to resist a DTS dvd.If anybody wants me to pick this up for them just drop me a line at [email protected] pick it up you send me the money and that will be it. I dont want anything in return,but the people on this forum has helped me so much in the past so I thought Id return the favor.

People will knock waterworld, but I actually enjoyed it when I saw it on cable....

Anyways, I am close to getting the DTS disc now that it is marked down....Lots of things on my list before it, but if there is any sale or anything (coupons,e tc.), then Maybe I will get it one of these days.

I think there is plenty of LFE in this movies it is just encoded into the 5 other channels (all the 5 discreet channels in DD and DTS can contain LFE). Some receivers/amplifiers cannot handle this (lack of proper bass management) so it seems to have no LFE. The original Speed DTS LD was also encoded this way and it got one of my friends into a lot of trouble trying to find out where all the bass had gone :)
Just my opinion

Agreed! This is defintely the case. Doesn't mean there is no bass, its just is in different channels. On many receivers, you can set all of your front, surround, and center speakers to small. This routes all information below your receivers cross over to the subwoofer out channel (or it can be directed to your fronts if you have no separate sub but have truly full range mains).

The only example I can remember offhand is Disney's Tarzan: CE. That is 5.0 and has some serious bass in it......Don't worry about 5.0, or any other .0 sound formats. As long as you have a capable receiver you are fine.....

I have the Dolby Digital version of Waterworld and it has a good soundtrack with good bass despite not having the dedicated LFE.
