To scubasteve: We're definitely not complaining. This is an awesome disc that you've been able to put together. My only concern about it would be the "why" question. Don't want to end up with a clip on v2.0 with a larger spl boost. My guess is it was just a mismouse click during the scenarist authoring of the clip but who knows. Nevertheless, great job!
I have confirmed that on my system the Dave clip on my Demo Disc is louder according to my RS SPL meter. (And to the ear)
Now, again, the stream isn't altered in any way. Scenarist doesn't modify streams, it only accepts them and muxs them with navigation. I don't think there is anything I did that would have boosted the THD track on this clip.
I think, considering some people have reported that there isn't a difference. That it might be player specific depending on how the player handles the track.
I use a PS3 wherein my PS3 decodes THD and kicks the audio out as LPCM over HDMI to my AVR.
The only difference between the track on my disc on the commerical track is that I've removed the Dolby Digital and LPCM streams, leaving only the THD stream.
Me thinks that my PS3, when playing back the commercial disc, is defaulting to the PCM track. Maybe there is code in the hardwares BDMV playback when decoding to LPCM to use LPCM if available. I dunno.
When I play it back on my PC, there isn't an audible difference between the two according to my SPL meter, although that's not nearly as uniform a test.
Can you tell me what hardware you have and what is decoding THD streams?
