WOW, has there ever been such an unanimous poll here at AVS?
Very interesting indeed
now I have another question, how does Sony intend to deal with audio on the older catalog titles once they start to come out? (I can even see some on the list you just posted)
My opinion is that (and I know it's shared by many) BOTH
, the original audio track
and whatever 5.1 remix
studios want to use, should be presented in uncompressed or lossless fashion for all titles not originally mastered for 5.1 (or higher). That's maintaining the original movie integrity and offering a change for revisionist viewing.
That should also be specially easy on bandwith since the original audio will probably be either stereo or mono.
In general, DVDs with either stereo or mono soundtrack can't hold a candle to their respective LDs with LPCM audio. For the movie enthusiast, it's just about time we get back to those heydays for audio on catalog titles.
