Last night i watched a laser disc - star trek 'generations' for the first time in probably 3 years. While the picture quality was of course far inferior to the DVD version (which i also have), i was reminded of how much better the laserdisc sound was. The sound was huge, crisp, booming, and enveloping. I have 15 movies in both the LD and DVD formats that are both encoded in either DD 5.1 or DTS. In nearly all cases, the LD sounds better. In a couple, the sound is equal. In no case does the DVD sound better. Of course, this is just my personal opinion, so i want to know if anyone else feels the same way (or not). Also, is there any technical difference in the way sound is encoded on laser vs. DVD that could account for the difference? BTW, i've owned a DVD player for 5 years now and was always on the "dvd side" in the old DVD vs. LD format wars. And i've thought since day 1 that DVDs looked better. So if anything my general 'bias' is pro-DVD.
