I definitely owe you a beer with the money saved - thanks!
Here is a quote from a review of the blu ray from another site, sounds like it still has an incredible soundtrack. You are going to cancel the preorder because it doesn't extend down 10 more hz??
'Pacific Rim Blu-ray, Audio Quality
Think Pacific Rim looks good? Wait'll you get a load of Warner's DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 and 5.1 surround tracks, a two-headed beast of a lossless monster hellbent on your home theater's complete and total subjugation. Battles roar, gears groan, Kaiju screech, rending metal screams, and explosions rock every battle scene, while a bustling, overcrowded Hong Kong cityscape attempts to survive beneath the combatants' feet. LFE output offers three sizes: big, bigger and biggest, yet never gets too unruly, overwhelming or out of control. Rear speaker activity is enveloping to the point of being engrossing, creating a fully immersive soundfield loaded with directional flourishes, ambient touches and unsettlingly smooth pans. Better still, dialogue is ever at the forefront of the chaos; always grounded, always intelligible. Voices are often overtaken by the action, but only when they're meant to be. The same goes for the chorus of effects that, at any given moment, comprise the film's absorbing sound design. Prioritization is flawless, making for both a terrific 7.1 and 5.1 experience, each of which are worthy of the "Best of 2013" chatter they're sure to invite. '
