    has there ever been a 1504 bitrate ES release? that'd be badass.
     
  5. Even thought I have an older Pro-Logic system, I'm glad this thread came along.

    I'll be getting a new audio system soon (although not before HD audio standards are worked out) and I need to educate myself about everything beyond 5.1 sound.

    The provided link mentions that 6.1 adds a rear center channel, which I'm assuming is used for 360 pans.

    Anyone care to elaborate on what 7.1 sound provides?

    scroll down to 2/3 of the article:
    http://www.hometheaterhifi.com/volum...06-part-4.html

    and i believe HTF has many, many thread about that already. the 2 "rear centers" of the 7.1 are currently mono until studios get their act together and start releasing HD-DVD/BR titles with true 7.1 encoded and avr's with true 7.1 decoding digitally.



    PS those of you that own titanic, does it make a difference vs. Dolby Digital?

    PPS if you look at the list, DTS already pales in comparison to Dolby Digital let alone 6.1 let alone 6.1 DISCRETE. has DTS abandoned this or have filmmakers not been taken into 6.1 encoding?

    I think R1 has the least amount of titles in DTS. I wonder why that is.

    Look at Asia, Polen, Holland. They have tons of titles released in DTS ...and in 6.1 Discrete as well.

    well, remember that the "dts" track in releases outside of R1 aren't truly dts. it could be DD dumped into dts or simply dolby pro logic. i've rented many Asian DVD's that have known to do this. it's a great format, but if you don't master it natively to dts. there's no point. most of R1 releases are true dts tracks, not just audio dumps.

    You mentioned outside the region 1 DVD, now does this include region 2 UK DVD, because I haven’t been impressed with it presentational standards, in fact the NTSC dts Laserdiscs sound better than the region 2 DVD that I have.

    I feel that the dts on region 2 UK DVD is a big rip off!

    i don't watch a lot of other regions besides 1 and 3. but i think audiences outside of r1 likes higher technology, like dts and sacd's, but they also don't understand that you have to master the audio in the studio and not just dump a pile of sound into dts and it will automatically "sound better". in fact, they don't really care because they slap a dts or sacd label on a product and it sells more because audiences like high-tech. i believe it has to do with the seller trying to sell more because they've had to content with higher rates of piracy and need to differentiate themselves. conversely audiences want higher quality a/v presentation... but they often don't understand that it starts in the content creators. thus, there is a gap between the buyer+seller to make things right because that ecosystem is so far removed from r1 market.

    Very interesting point you have brought up here, very interesting, now that is the feeling I’m starting to get, I will investigate this matter and measure the sound pressure levels acoustical at home with A & C weighting comparisons to see which film sounds the best with the encoded sound format Dolby or dts, I’m betting Dolby will win hands down, after years listening experience with it!

    I know your post said DTS 6.1 but wanted to point out, as this seems the closest discussion I have come across now in close to two years.., and that is my Star Wars trilogy set (silver ed.) which was released Sept 04 , The three disc volume set of IV / V and VI of the Trilogy Special Ed. all comes in 6.1 DD , ( can verify with PowerDVD6 ), yet the first three issues , Phantom, Attack, and revenge only come 5.1 ... [​IMG] ...

    Was there ever a posting on that?
