For the PQ Tier Thread, please click here.

after picking up my jaw from the floor following Underworld, i thought there should be a thread dedicated to audio quality on our bd discs. underworld is perhaps the best sounding bd i've heard out of my whole collection, i even popped in potc: dmc to make sure i wasn't wrong and to me the 16bit lpcm sounded better than the 24bit lpcm on dmc.

List so far. I'll try to maintain this as much as i can tho it will prob idle through weekends. when posting suggestion please give full title and audio option (best available and one listened to if diff). i'll add poster's name at the end so we'd know who to flame.

*Listing is in alphabetical order. If you made a post and i did not put your choice in the tier, please PM me with the choice and make sure you provide a tier number. Also please list the track you are rating, and also distinguish DTS-MA core and lossless.

And said person must be able to listen in all avail audio codexs. I would think it would need to be multi tiered. Since I think we all know that something that might make tier 0 in lossless might not make it on the core track.

DTS MA can't come soon enough to break out the audio on some of my titles
.

I agree with
DMD
NIN
Black Hawk Down being Teir zero
Ghost Rider (despite the movie sucking)
The Wild

I'll have to revisit the thread with some others later.

should movies like Unforgiven, Blazing Saddles and others that don't really have much emphasis on sound be included? most will fall in tier 2 or 3 i guess.

I believe PS3 downconverted the audio to a DTS track but still one of the most agressive surround IMHO. I think we need to set a criteria before we can identify the tier they belong to. Also note that we have different setup and listening environment.

At least Tier 1 for Pearl Harbor. I don't know how many times I watched the attack! Excellent.

The second Fantastic Four wasn't too shabby for AQ!

Actually if you want to be fair... Tier 0 should only contain Dave Mathews IMO.
Listen to that and then throw in anything else and your in for a shock!

Mods can we make this a sticky?

Dave Mathews is simply the best audio that I have heard - it is amazingly lifelike!

LOVE the idea, I hope we can keep it going.

I would probably put Chicken Little in tier 1 (pcm) and Happy Feet in tier 1 as well (DD)

The Prestige (pcm) tier 1

Once we get going on this, I'm sure that most of the tier 0 will fall off (even my inclusion) just due to popular vote and a wide arrange of different set-ups. I know the PQ thread changes as new titles come on, once you get multiple opinions. "Always start your asking price high to allow for some room to negotiate down!!" I really want to check out the Dave Mathews disc with the rave reviews for PQ and AQ...I wonder if Blockbuster might get those in for rental..probably not.
