Every where I look it says that region 2 DVDs and Blu-Rays from the UK won't play here in systems in the states.

Get player and get a friend to change the transformer so it works with 60Hz hmm UK goes lower 50Hz interesting. What about multi-region here in the UK some like region 1 DVD.

If any one is being tortured with electricity surly it would be 60Hz or better still 50Hz.

Added to the list based on the review.

Afro Samurai: Resurrection Blu-ray

Quote:

First off LFE = whoa. This is the LFE king of animation titles, in terms of bass I wouldn't say it is Cloverfield as much as it is TDK. The disc filled with lots of deep LFE, the room shaking stuff, in some instances even the house shaking stuff. I think this one might have gone subsonic a few times. The bass doesn't just stick to the area around the sub, it will travel throughout the area of the room. Good stuff.

Compared to Season 1 this one is a big step up in terms of mixing. Atmospherics are good the soundscape, on the whole, is much more active in this one. In terms of sheer aggressiveness Season 1 can't touch it. This isn't going to stack up to KFP, but it's totally appropriate for the material.
Surround use is also more prevalent. And there are some neat sci-fi sounds that pepper the show.

My only issue is that at times the dialogue feels like it's something separate from the rest of the mix. Imaging could be a bit better, and as good as the LFE is it doesn't really do that thing where it creates its own gravity field, at least not firmly. I'm certain that the fixed version, whenever that gets out, will alleviate these things - deep bass does benefit from lossless. One other thing that I liked is that the audio is mixed with proximity in mind and the levels adjust accordingly. Music will also be dialed up and down as needed for dramatic effect. In some instances I think the composer went with less Bassy music so the weapons and various exaggerated moves could use up those frequencies, which I think was a smart move.

The rest of the audio is completely competent, but the LFE is the real standout here. I wasn't not expecting LFE with that much emphasis on the L, with this title. I'm really on the fence about calling this Tier 0, it does sound great.

To answer your question:

There are a number of different SD players that can be "hacked" with their remote to allow for region free playback. OPPO makes some of the most popular models.

As far as Blu Ray, you'll need a player from that region, your US player hardware modded (or if you can do it, there are kits available) or an LG 200 dual format player can be remote hacked to playback other regions.

Personally, I have a OPPO player and had my backup Panny 30 blu ray player modded by jvbdigital.com. It costed about $170 delivered to perform the mod.

I had a group from work over last night to watch the Blu Ray copy of "Taken"

Changeling on blu ray had some good bass in a a few scenes. Just watched it last night. The chicken coop scenes specifically. I also got quarantine(only the dvd because some one let me borrow it) and it has lots of bass throughout.

So, I had been watching this one (the sound canon scene) in 20 Hz mode and decided to give 15Hz mode a shot. Holy moly!!! Wow man. When the canons start the Ultras throw out quite the wind....And the woofs really move... Most excellent. Closing off that third port really increases the air flow.

Just watched Hancock...not a bad movie, but really unimpressive for the bass.

This movie should have had a ton more LFE content than it did!

did you have to recalibrate after switching tuning modes ?

i thought i read that you lose a few db above the tuning point when using the lower tuning modes ?
