Lately I have been purchasing an abundance of Blu-Ray imports (mainly for their steelbook editions) and it made me very curious as to the quality of Audio/Video I am getting compared to the releases that are available locally in the states. For example, I just purchased a French and Italian steelbook for Rise of the planet of the apes and super 8. They are both region free and carry the same soundtrack as their releases here but I've been getting a little paranoid lately thinking as far as bit rate and data goes that I could be losing out on the quality in my audio/video presentation compared to if I were to purchase these titles here locally? Especially since on most imports the default audio will always be the origin of its country.
Can anyone help me out here? Thanks all!
