What about the audio? I don't have the whole DVD set, only the director's cut of TWOK.

Audio is bassy and bright.

I meant the audio of the DVD vs blu-ray quality.
post #1324 of 1334
The Blu-ray audio is cleaner and tighter than the DVD mixes, but it's not a radically superior experience - certainly not enough to make the DNR'ed picture more bearable!

Most of the Trek Blu's are crappy....however, I thought the best audio/video experience was from TMP.....YMMV!

No question the DVDs look more analog although somewhat of a red push.

This is a comprison Xlyon did.

That is one of the better BDs! I would like to see such a comparison for III or IV.

Yes, the Blu-rays are problematic, but you're seriously romanticizing if you think the DVDs were in any way better.
I don't know what the US Special Editions are like, but the UK PAL SEs have noticeably better (unmolested) picture quality, particularly where ST6 is concerned.

Hmmm, that's interesting. What do you upconvert the PAL DVDs to? 1080i50?
post #1331 of 1334
PAL DVD is upconverted to alot of things depending on your setup.

720/50P, 1080/50i, 1080/25P, 1080/50P.

Just watched Khan and it looked nothing like the screenshot that was posted where they're looking at the Genesis planet. There was no blue shift and the color looked perfect throughout the movie on my calibrated projector. Highly recommended!

Thats because our eyes adapt very well to what we are watching. Unless we have access to a reference picture.

Take the typical projector screen. Its rarely black, but dark grey. But the eyes adapt to the grey screen and make the grey as our reference black. Unless you start and look at the black border of the screen. Suddenly we have a new reference black and the screen starts to look grey again.
