Just watched Elysium again with the mvc turned up a little bit more. The bass is definitely there but the futuristic airburst AK-47 still sounds lackluster. Not the airburst scene but the actual weapon being fired sounded so so.

No subwoofer I've heard has been able to produce the bass I've experienced in the Corps!

Hey, things are looking up for this thread, it's been almost a page and a half since it was sidetracked with off topic conversation, let's keep it going.  Does anybody know anything about Gravity? Is any good bass supposed to be in it?

I personally felt that the bass really helped with the storytelling aspect for Gravity. It's not like TIH or FOTP but still good imho. I thought it was a great mix overall

I won't be able to add anything until the closing ceremonies for the 2014 Olympics as they're pretty much our viewing focus.

Gravity has some decent 20hz scenes. The first debris scene there is this low 20hz rumble that lasts a good while.

Thanks for the feedback guys.

 

Osogovo I must have missed your post but I've gotten into the habit of skimming through this thread lately as it has been getting wildly off topic at times (sometimes hilariously so, that post on Bee being the cow being lowered into the velociraptor pen in Jurassic Park was absolutely hilarious, even Bee thought so).

I am revisiting Oblivion dtsMA7.1 mkv ripped tonight and oh my gosh, I do not remember it was this good. Deep loud bass plus fantastic picture quality. I just wish the bass does not get out of my seal theater room though as it bothers the heck out of my wife downstairs on the opposite side of my theater room frown.gif

I watched All Is Lost tonight and then gave a review on the "New PQ Thread for Blu-rays." I began my review with the following words:

A Discovery Channel series that I really miss is "Man Versus Wild" (which starred Bear Grylls). Well, tonight's "outing" was literally "Man Versus Sea." What a harrowing account this was of one man's attempt to survive while lost at sea. Before I get into a breakdown of the PQ, I want to give a huge shout-out for the amazing AQ on this Blu. The first "storm at sea" lasted a good 10-15 minutes and it was so LOUD, with thunderous LFE, that I almost got sea-sick!! No really, the audio was simply superb on every level and if for nothing else, give this a rent just to experience what it's like to "ride out the storm" in a 35' sailboat.

I want to thank those who recommended this title. Before reading of it on this thread, I had no idea it existed. Now I'm a proud owner of this Blu-ray and will most definitely be using it as a demo to show off the virtues of a good DTS HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack. The first storm (mentioned above) has got to be one of the most unique aural experiences I've had since buying a sub that really shines down to about 18 Hz. It's a bonus that the same scene had stellar action in the surrounds as well. cool.gif

I think Jriver MC19 (with parametricEQ built in that I have been playing with and added) I installed last week on my HTPC has to contribute to the better bass quality I hear recently with both Elysium and Oblivion.

You're welcome, though as I mentioned I too am indebted to others on this thread for recommending this Blu-ray.

You may or may not like the movie itself...some are complaining about the "slow pace" or the "lack of dialogue," but I thoroughly enjoyed it, due mostly to a fine job of acting by Robert Redford (one didn't need a ton of dialogue, for Redford's facial expressions told the story).

I would highly recommend listening to this as loud as you're able to. My wife is gone so I listened to it at -1 (I took that cue from Toe smile.gif). cool.gif

Ail is not my type of movie due to severely lack of dialogue plus it is a Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
one man movie
It does not have lot of bass, just a few scenes here and there. I would rent it first to see if you like it.

Actually just finished watching Escape Plan. Nothing really memorable on the LFE side but I thought it was a fun film to watch!

No subwoofer I've heard has been able to produce the bass I've experienced in the Corps!

Must..stop...buying...every bluray release...

Oh well ! Looks like I'll just sit back for some old school fun and maybe do a second "Elysium" viewing with the sub bump (starting at +3 and up to +6, though I enjoyed it as is ) or ED since the wife allowed the sometimes to comfy theater/living room she helped put together put her asleep yet again biggrin.gif

Is it a rental issue for EP or did you buy ?

I did a blind buy as Arnold and Syl seemed like a good combo.

I downloaded the DTS-HD rip a few days ago and I honestly thought the LFE track in Gravity was better than Enders Game. They used it to really build up some intense moments. I will be using a scene or two to demo my new sub to a couple friends.

question about volume setting.

When you guys watch movies, do you normally have your receiver set at a certain level and leave as is for all movies or do you always adjust accordingly? Reason I ask, I normally watch movies between -20 and -15, which bass is usually loud, but I sometimes find the volume for some movies to be quiet and require to go lower than -15, but I'm always afraid of surprise bass sequences, like the grenade in WWZ. I think a lot of the time I underestimate my subs, 2 pb-10s and a pb1000 placed around the couch and even though they've never stressed, I would hate to damage them.
