Ok doc, Rush; Rush in rio (concert dvd) no not the concert itself, but at around timestamp 1:13 They begin the second half of the concert w/ a dragon video. the bass that this puts out is almost as intense as the "pulse scene" maybe stronger but not as deep (at least i don't think). But reference bass for sure. Ive had this dvd for a while now but always skipped this scene. Now i'll use it as my bass demo!
yes but 2 channel bass usually has a lot more bass than the actual LFE channel. I don't have POTC now (returned it)...will have Bourne 2sday but it's HD and won't work on my comp. PLENTY and I mean PLENTY of reds (-20 stuff) in POTC though!
The PCM track on The Rock for Blu-ray sometimes had my house in jeopardy. Some notable moments are the intro when the title appears on screen, the sequence when Connery shoots the grate and it lands on the mercenary, and the impact of the sniper rifle towards the end. I could give some timestamps if anyone is interested.
I thought that I should mention it as this is some serious low bass for a movie of its age. By the way, I use a HSU VTF-3 MK3 in a small-to-medium sized home theater room.
"The Rock" PCM Blu-ray
1. Chap 2 (0:01:10 - 0:01:15)
2. Chap 2 (0:01:46)
3. Chap 11 (0:48:35 - 0:48:45)
4. Chap 21 (1:25:36)
5. Chap 29 (1:58:26)
6. Chap 30 (2:00:18)
7. Chap 30 (2:05:45 - 2:05:55)
These are the moments that really standout, but there are many other moments that have the dynamics of most modern action films.
What's interesting about this PCM track is that low frequencies are much, much deeper than on the 640 kbps DD track after volume matching the two. The difference between the two audio encodes on this disc is staggering.
I should also note that this version of The Rock was imported from the UK, but it is unedited. Therefore, the timestamps should match-up with the upcoming US release.
