Ask yourself this would you settle for "Oblivion" in any other format then what you heard it in ? Also the rental is filtered at 16hz which is a handicap to the potential that this reaches down to and smoothly so
However, I fully expected that the DD track would be the same mix as the DTS-MA so the only thing missing would be that added fidelity/quality and I could at least here the actual mix. I was surprised to read that the DD mix is actually slightly different (still have not seen any graph of it though, so not sure how different it is) and if I had known that before hand, I probably would have just blind bought it due to all the rave reports for audio. Having said all that, I cant imagine the DD mix was THAT much different vs the DTS-MA as many will attest to, it sounds fantastic and all the well know bass scenes (

) hit hard and just like I would expect looking at the graphs and reading the reports. I definitely did not hear any bloat though like the poster I responded to did and I was listening at a much louder volume, so it would have been more obvious if it was something in the track (maybe it was in the track though and I just missed it somehow).
I am planning on picking this up though and checking out the full MA track when I can find it used or on sale. Not only is the audio amazing, but the PQ is right up there as well and it all combines for a really fun HT experience IMO.
Definitely need to own it, but need to find it cheap before I pick it up.Edited by Toe - 2/20/14 at 9:38am
