Get ready for a rumbling good time with Dune's very impressive DTS-HD MA 5.1 track, which kicks into LFE heaven from the first moments and rarely lets up for more than two hours. This is one of the most bass heavy tracks in recent memory, full of thundering low frequencies that will leave your floorboards vibrating in ecstasy ... The entire track has incredible dynamic range, even with its omnipresent emphasis on lower frequencies.

I checked his list, but Ralph hasn't reviewed it yet. Has anybody seen / heard this Blu-Ray yet? We've only seen the movie via broadcast and DVD in the past, and I don't remember the bass making a big impression in those formats. I'll post back once we spin the Blu.
I have some subs that go extremely deep, and I can't say that, from my experience (at least on the BR) Dune is particularly impressive on the VLFE front.

Nice to hear more positive LFE statements about this film.

I was due to receive this in the mail yesterday and had one going out. For some reason the mailman did not stop at my box. The movie I was sending back is still in my box with flag up. I guess I'll have to wait till Monday to get my bass fix.

That review sounds like Dune need's to have a revisit for sure. Good looking out!!

Thanks for heads up
I'm with you as I enjoyed this Sci Fi film when I first seen it. It's been almost 30 years since I've watched so I look forward to reading about your take on how it looks and sounds on BD. I've added it to my queue.

Movies are indeed subjective !!
I gave this film a viewing last night and was not impressed with the overall film. Although I will give it credit, where credit is due and that is in the Bass dept !! Being that RedBox doesn't have the blu-ray, I did the download/streaming on Netflix.
So on Netflix it was HD with a Dobly 5.1 track. I'm sure the blu-ray disc would be a better picture and sound. Anyway as stated the bass was "awesome" and that is how a monster should sound. (LOL)........
Once and done for me, but it was a fun bass ride.

Sweeeeet!! I'm glad to hear your take did not leave out what was important, The Bass! I'll prep myself to go in with an open mind knowing the film is subjective. Even if not that great of a story it will fill the need for bass and curiosity.

I had to due some trickery to get this film. There is always a couple of movies in our queue that we can stream while waiting for our BD's in the mail, this being one of them. Every time this film got voted out for another one so I decided to bump it up in the queue so the BD would come in the mail and no voting is needed. I'll see how it looks and sounds tomorrow. I think it only has DD 5.1 for audio.

LOL!! Nice to know I'm not the only one old enough to know better but still young enough to try it if we want to.
I know I hate to type those big numbers as I feel my body should be done ageing. If I age any more I may start to rot. Just kidding I'm loving this time of my life and as long as my mind still remembers things from back in the day then all is good. Will for sure post up my thoughts when I get the chance to watch Dune.

Well, this week I did my fair share of watching films. Need for Speed, great movie and great audio really nothing bad to say about it, Guardians of the Galaxy- still one of my favorites of the last year, The maze Runner- really liked this movie, bass and surround. Then last night I watched the Equalizer, I thought this movie was very well done. Its now on my watch list on amazon.

Thanks for mentioning Snowpiercer folks(sorry I forgot exactly who). Did think it was a decent movie, but the LFE was great. Thought that there was good bass in scenes that needed to be. Thanks again for throwing this one out there, as I enjoyed it.

Saw Expendables 3 this weekend with my dual Hsu VTF15 mk2 subs. You are so right, this one really rocks the house. Great picture, surround and killer bass. One of my bass favorites. If you don't get bass on this one something is setup incorrectly in your system or you're sitting in a big bass null. 4.5 stars.

Just revisited Master and Commander today. The cannon fire in the battle scenes gave the subs a decent workout and I was also surprised by the quality of the over all audio mixing. Good movie for bass and surround sound IMO. Well worth watching.

I am curious to see this one measured. While subjectively the single digit stuff did not hit super hard, it sure seems to be there and the track seems to be unfiltered. It was a ton of fun either way though for bass/audio and I am sure you will enjoy it from a sound perspective (I enjoyed the movie, but that's very subjective of course). Curious what you guys think after you watch it though.

I picked this up 2 yrs ago and its still sealed I loved the DVD version and its well known the awards this one won for its audio mix. Now from what I understand, there is a difference between the blu and the dvd version audio wise where the bass is concerned and why I haven't prioritized watching the bluray copy I picked up.


Its good to hear its not as bad as I feared.

Ten minutes into the movie, she leans over and says, "You were right, this is really good." That'll make talking her into the next bass monster easier. She loves bass, but kind of forgets.

What a killer ride! It was way more fun watching it from the beginning. Loved the pace and bass from start to finish. We were both pretty much wired for two hours. Can't wait for the sequels!
Mogrub, couldnt agree with you more... Pacific Rim was fun, a throwback to watching robotech as a kid, and had some serious bass. Video quality was also reference caliber IMO.

Great looking forward to the sound on this film Toe!

I'm still waiting though as for some reason I can't get the mailman here. We did get snow Saturday and Sunday, but it isn't like I'm that rural for them to get out. I'm due to get The Maze Runner today so if I get lucky and mail runs I'll be set for a couple of days.

Yeah the first time I watched it years ago it was the DVD but I didn't have the system I have now so I didn't notice the audio and I certainly missed out on the bass. I don't know if the Blu-ray is as good as the DVD (watch it sometime and let me know) but it was most definitely worth watching. It's a good movie IMO so even if the blu-ray falls short of the DVD its still worth putting the time aside to watch it.

Maze Runner was great!! Great soundtrack, solid 4. I also loved the movie. Picked up Gone Girl and Walk Among the Tombstones a little while ago. Not sure if I am getting any bass out of these two, but hopefully Fury will make up for next week or the week after, whenever it is released.

See what happens when you actually unwrap your movies?[emoji16]

Wow I guess it would be a little understandable with that amount! I bet not much of anything was getting around let alone mail.

I got home early today and they have plowed our street. Of course now I had to clear out the snow pile that the plow left in front of the mailbox. I don't want them saying it was blocked. If it wasn't for the bass movies I would have left it for nothing else is due expect bills.

Hey Hops and AF, I bought the Blu figuring it would be even better audio / bass than the DVD, which had been fantastic. So the Blu possibly lacking LFE was news to me. Thanks for the heads up.

I just burned lunch time looking for details. Ralph Potts has never reviewed M&C, but I found this Blu review that gives M&C 5 stars. But unfortunately, the word "bass" does not appear once. Not a good first sign. Just a couple lines:

The audio is the real spark that ignites Master and Commander, bringing life to the action. This was apparent even in the DVD version, but the Blu-ray goes beyond the excellent sound quality of the earlier release ... Listen to the battle scene at the beginning of the film when cannons fire, the projectiles rip through the air and slam into the hull of the Surprise, splintering the wood, sending men and debris flying.

Turns out there are two AVS threads that compare M&C's LFE in the DVD vs. the Blu-Ray. One is here, and a longer one here. Short story is that measurements confirm the DVD has superior LFE on the discs tested. Looks like a LPF was applied to at least the first run of Blu pressings. There are also posts suggesting (a) the filter may have been removed on later pressings of the Blu, and (b) you can dodge the filter if you watch the Spanish or French versions (using subtitles) on the Blu. The tradeoff there is that'll give you a lossy version instead of the lossless DTS-HD MA on the English audio Blu track.

Here's the conclusion thread starter Snowmandick posted after M&C got examined for about a thousand posts on his longer thread:

Update After Lengthy Debate: Apparently the only film that has some kind of filtering is Master and Commander. This thread has a couple of well done waterfalls comparing the LFE on M&C on both DVD and BD. The BD does appear to have less LFE but, again, this appears to be the only film with a difference between the DVD and BD, so it is not apparently a trend ... this thread has served to answer that question rather definitively.
audiofan1 and Hopinater like this.


Every once in a while, quite inexplicably, things actually go according to plan.

So The Maze Runner finally hit Redbox today. I searched online to find a copy of the bluray, but I'm only able to search for the DVD. I then looked online to see if I could find if they're only doing the DVD release of this, but I couldn't find any info. Does anyone know any info on potential Maze Runner on Redbox? I seem to remember another movie a year (I don't remember which movie) or so ago that they only had the DVD copy.

I was looking forward to picking it up since it looks to have good video in addition to audio. I may just have to be archaic (ha) and get the DVD.

Great research Mogrub, thanks for that info. I will say the LFE may be lacking on the Blu-ray but it's still got some good bass moments. And the audio in the battle scenes (with the surrounds going full out) was really very well done.

The bluray version of Maze Runner at Redbox is not available in my area either. I've also noticed lately that this is occurring with other recent releases as well.
