I watched the Last Witch Hunter and it was a decent lite horror/action movie. Sound was great even for a rental with the DTSMA 5.1 track!

Because if the core audio (DTS-HD MA 7.1) sounds this good to you, with great bass impact...it must be totally awesome from the main dts:x audio (7.1.4).

* You watched it from the Blu-ray? Do you have a Denon 7200 AV Receiver, or Marantz 8802 Surround Sound Processor?
Yes, Bluray. I have a Marantz 7009

Still trying to recover from the LFE whoopin' I took last night in my HT! Did the Chappie and Admiral Roaring Currents double feature last night and by the time it was all over I felt like I had gotten my a$$ kicked with bass/audio in the best possible way! Had seen Chappie when it first hit and the sound/bass was as good as I remembered, but it was just a warm up for that last ~hour of Roaring Currents.....DAMN! Roaring Currents was a grade A certified LFE fest! I know I am late to the party on this title, but just had to chime in.

I've been putting off Roaring currents but that looks like some serious motivation to make haste and give it a spin

Make sure you watch it when you can go full force with the volume! The last hour is a crazy ride!

Hey all - I will be having a friend over this Friday and would like some suggestions on a movie for us to watch.

Just recently finished building a 125" screen for my projector and a marty sub so looking for something that has good and plentiful bass, good overall audio and video quality, plus hopefully something that is a good movie to boot !!

The wife will be out so cant wait to finally let this thing loose as she doesnt like hearing the house vibrate !

As many suggestions as you can offer would be great as I dont really know what he has seen yet.

I think Mad Max Fury Road is sure to impress anyone in both audio and video.

Mad Max Fury Road is my go to demo bluray.
great audio, picture quality, great bass throughout and lots of action.
...and I enjoyed the movie itself (excellent replay value)

Most do, but a lot of Lionsgate rentals only have DD 5.1. Besides most Lionsgate titles (and their subsidiary company Summit), you are good.

I was concerned if I was missing anything. I do not watch movies more than once usually, so I either get Blurays from Netflix or Redbox.

With the exception of some Lionsgate/Summit titles, you are not missing anything renting as far as audio is concerned. I rent most of my movies as well from Netflix and/or Redbox.

I have no idea how the LFE is, but I was looking forward to renting Bridge of Spies from Redbox last week.
Then I noticed they only carry the dvd. I hope this doesn't turn into a new trend. I wonder if they're planning on releasing the bluray once Netflix releases it.

Hey if he has seen it this might actually let him know what all he missed out on the first time he watched, since you have a big screen and a Marty

x2!!

At the very least use it as a warm-up/pre-view

Even if you just watch the first 15-20 minutes it's a worthy Demo to show what a real home theater can do.
Let him decide if you need to continue running with it or to put on something else.

Has anyone graphed Spectre yet?
I picked up the Steelbook Bluray of the latest Bond flick from BestBuy today
(I had to complete the set)

It's no bass-fest but the 7.1 DTS-MA seemed pretty good to me,
The lows were pretty well done... I'm limited to about 20Hz though, so cant say for sure.

There's a pretty good LFE event in the opening chapter,
the rest is pretty subtle until chapter 23 that woke my subs up (screen cap in the spoiler link)

Spoiler!


The end of chapter 26 was a room shaker too

Sorry for the picture quality,
(Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphone shot of my 120" screen)

Well, I finally watched The Martian last night. I really enjoyed the movie over all. The bass was good, it was no bass fest but it did have it's moments. I liked the audio as well. What I liked best was that the story really drew me in.
