The cheaper one has the artwork I'm familiar with, and it's listed as having the DTS-HD MA soundtrack. Get that one.

It's good thought-provoking sci-fi but its long and does have some slow stretches. The sound is good.

Me too! I have a feeling the sound track is going to be a 4 or 5 star. I wanted to see this at the theater, but figured I would wait for the BR anticipating that it would be a good LFE movie.

I've seen a version with 5.1 Dolby Digital and I was happy with it. Though I do get what others are saying about the lack of ULF. Either way I'm taking a trip to Best Buy next Tuesday. smile.gif

Yes.

Flight of the Phoenix on blu-ray disc, has lossless 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.
The DVD doesn't have lossless audio.
Get the blu-ray disc and forget about the DVD.

That whole plane crash landing sequence is my favorite demo scene.
Sound quality is just jaw dropping incredible!

What does that matter? Shouldn't the concern here have more to do with the amount LF mixed into the track? What does lossy vs lossless have to with the LF content.

I own most of the blu ray's 5 stars rating beginning this thread. That's how I discovered Tron: Legacy (thank you!) I think it would be of great interest for those of us who don't have charts / apps if someone or few of you guys could make a quick list of few blu rays from there with the exact time where it has a 5Hz scene, and in another scene or another blu ray, a 10Hz scene, a 15Hz scene and another one with a 20Hz. That's because with that, we could listen (read FEEL) if our system has the ability to reproduce these frequencies. Personnaly I agree on most of the 5 stars rating and just to give perspective, I own two SB-12 NSD hooked-up to a Denon 3310ci in a 1500 cu.ft. and I must say yes, that crash scene from FOTP, I think I got it all! But, with that quick list maybe me and others will find that from other scenes / movies, nothing emanate from the subs.rolleyes.gif

I keep hearing about this Flight of the Phoenix scene. I don't suppose there is a m2ts or mkv clip floating around...

I see the thread about the ultimate bass demo disc, but that is slow going. Of course I'd rather people just post m2ts clips. If I'm against forum rules or whatever just delete this post, not trying to hijack this thread.

and no I don't have netflix or a redbox with blurays and its a movie i have no interest in buying.

Finally got around to Battleship. Thoroughly disappointing, terrible movie. Three star vote from me. Lots of loud LFE, but it was all up high.

I agree. There were only two reasons to watch the board game movie, the promise of bass and Brooklyn Decker. Sadly, it contained too little of both.

I watched Super 8 for the first time today, via Redbox dvd... wifey was napping, so didn't turn it up past -20, but it was still quite impressive. Gonna keep an eye out for it at my local used DVD store... not necessarily cheap, just frugal... but do wish I could've given it a run at full volume.
Yes, reference level = 0 db, if properly calibrated.

What a long, strange trip its been....

Did not think much of Super 8 or the train crash scene. The crash was good but I would not say great. The movie itself was not that good to me.

Wow. Really? That's a killer demo scene! Something is missing on your end.

It is not a "killer demo scene", but very close...

A lot is missing in many home theater systems...

Well I guess this is a bass thread but overall I find it a stellar demo scene and it sounds incredible on my system.
