Also notable is how nice the dialog sounds throughout, with the exception of the aforementioned scene (Kingpin character's voice sounds off).
Agreed! Watched this last week and the only complaints I could find is maybe a touch more extension would have been great, but that is it. Good enough for a reference vote for me as well and overall this is one excellent track! Loved the 2 main arena battles!Real Steel (DTS-MA) ReferenceDrive (DTS-HD-MA) tier 1
This was a great track from the viewpoint of telling the story and supporting the actual on screen elements, but for purposes of this thread is tier 1 at best from my perspective. Nothing technically wrong with the mix as LFE hit in the right places, good surround work, dialog good, etc.......but there was nothing memorable about this mix for me, and certainly nothing "demo" worthy. The star of the show here from a technical perspective was the PQ/cinematography IMO.The Tree of Life (DTS-HD-MA 7.1) tier 0
This was one excellent track. Not your typical tier 0 track, but it belongs here to my ears. When this one comes to life, it really packs a sonic punch with excellent dynamics, great LFE use, awesome surrounds.
On a side note, this movie and "The Art of Flight" are 2 of the most impressive PQ/cinematography discs I have seen on blu. Watched both of these last week and was blown away by the visuals in both!

You might need to turn the volume down a bit from what you normally watch on this one because of the high end though.

It was a fun track
