To me Pacific Rim was just one long bass note that tended to just drone on and on never changing and not really adding much to the movie. I don't recall the surround being used as well as in Godzilla either.

I'm betting that I would like the Godzilla sound track even better in DTS Master.
I also watched Godzilla the other day and was very disappointed. Horrible movie except for the audio. The black levels were really bad IMO. 90% of the movie was in the dark and maybe 10mn top of actual Godzilla footage. I also thought the acting was not very good. I'm glad I rented it and would never buy it even if it was in the budget bucket at Walmart for 5.00 lol.

I cannot ways for X-Men and Edge of Tomorrow in a couple of weeks. I actually think I am going to skip Transformers 4. I have the other 3 on blu, but they are just so long and they get so boring. I think it will be the first disc with Atmos though.

+1 to both points. EOT, based off the PvA a few posts back is the first BR to actually make me fear playing it. I also like the X-Men series and I've been looking forward to DOFP since the little set-up piece at the end of The Wolverine.

The exact opposite is true for TF4. I'm sure it is loud and has lots of pretty people and colors but based off how bad each sequel has been, the fact that each has been worse than the last, and what a mess TF3 was, I have no desire to watch this. I tried watching TF3 a few months ago as I hadn't seen it since its BR debut and gave up within 30 minutes.

Hopefully the next Atmos movie is something worth watching. I'm looking forward to upgrading to Atmos but don't feel pressure to do so immediately with this as the sole announced title to date.

I seen X-Men in theaters and loved it and gunna pick it up too. Havnt seen EoT but my friend has and loved it so I'm gonna borrow from him before I decide to buy.

The Trans movies are indeed way too long and boring inbetween action. The first one is my fav. I'm excited for Trans 4 for its audio mostly but also excited to see it.

Most of the LFE in Transformers AOE is around 30-60hz. There is a few scenes where it dips down to 10-20hz.

Watched godzilla last night, the movie is nothing special, but I thought it had good bass. I started the movie at -12db and ended up finishing it at -17db. My couch was moving through the majority of that movie.

Yep loud boomy bass. The first one was ok, but to me it is just old and boring. I would have probably picked this up a couple of months ago when there was nothing fresh for weeks, but to much coming down the line here. I will pick Transformers when it is $9 dollars at BB. No Atmos for me yet and won't be till Gen 2. I would actually like to see the XMC 1 with Atmos. However by that time there Atmos will be out of date

The Pulse scene in Godzilla were awesome. Lot of pressure in the ear, lot of LFE. The movie had a couple of new twist and for me, a buy down the road. EOT storyline was not that good. Hard to tell what type of bass will be on the BD.

Don't be scared of EoT. The loudest part are those tones right at the beginning (which are hard limited/clipped). The rest of the track is unfiltered goodness, without hard limiting or clipping seen anywhere else, in my cursory look last week.

I thought TF4 was the best one since the first.

TF4 is much better then 2 & 3 imo...and I am not really a TF fan. I thought the change of actors made it MUCH more enjoyable.

I agree overall better than pacific rim in both audio and as a movie. I'll be picking this up when it gets to the bargain bin.

I also didn't have any of the black level issues a previous poster mentioned. At least not that I noticed.

I was not expecting that intro... very much took me by surprise!

Watched the 3D BluRay... the sound was just like Nube's description.

It was very very subtle in the theater, but I could tell it was going to be a monster at home... Too bad I am subless at the moment or I would give it a go...again...

I thought the New Transformers movie was awful. Storyline is getting way out of hand with the ridiculousness. It just seemed like a cheezy knock off movie. Marky Mark just didn't fit the role for me and it was WAY too long and drawn out.

I think I might have to start searching...
thanks for your response


A lot of equipment was not designed to equate 0dB on the master volume readout to reference level. The 0dB = reference level is a THX standard that may or may not be used by non THX AVRs.

0dB MV on my AVR means the volume is all the way up.

-22dB MV means my system will reproduce a -30 dB FS test tone as 75 dB SPL. That is the "reference level" setting on my AVR. I use speakers with normal sensitivity.

When are you going to get a "new" AVR? You need to keep your replacement time cycle intact!
