A common theme is running through all these examples, that is, the way to demo is loud and louder. It seems that the deeper the bass and the louder the action then that shows a quality system. I used to think that way too, until, I turned the volume down, isolated the environment and upgraded my equipment. Then, the most awesome demo's became those that extracted you out of the room and into the movie with the subtlest of audio/video cues. Another DVD that does this well is the Jurasic Park III DVD. The scenes in the bird cage, the ending scene when the group is surrounded by the Raptors and the scene when the group is dispersed into the forest while the Raptors are chasing them provide excellent subtle and some not so subtle audio cues. There are other DVDs and scenes that aspire to "put you there" in the movie. One that comes to mind is the first Indiana Jones movie. In the opening scene when Indy's group is going through the jungles of South America.
I'm curious. Does anyone show a demo scene that does not go above 85 dB? If not, why not? Do you realize that you lose the female audience when you get to 90, 95 and 100 dB? :confused: Anyone?
