I'm glad I ran into this thread as I didn't want to start a new one just to ask about what I think might be an audio flaw on the 7.1 audio of the the Texas Chain Saw Massacre: 40th Anniversary Blu-ray. I recently bought it and finally watched it last night. The problem I noticed is with the Left Rear channel...the audio is there, but the sound is almost virtually none existent almost like it's not there. While at the same time, the Right Rear channel is loud and very noticeable (like the rest of the surround audio channels.)
I didn't make any notes as to the times in the movie where I noticed this, (it's throughout the whole movie) however to make it easy if anyone can check (in 7.1 audio) the very VERY last part of the film where Leatherface is swinging around the saw as the girl is finally escaping on the back of the pickup truck ALL the rears are very loud with the exception of the Left Rear channel.
To be clear, I'm not talking about the Left Surround channel, it's the Left Rear where the volume if VERY low (and much of the time it sounds like it's off) when compared to all the other rear channels.
My system has been professionally calibrated (audio and video) and I don't have this issue with any other movies with 7.1 audio tracks. Just to make sure I'm not wasting anyone's time; I just checked the 7.1 audio in "Need For Speed" and the Left Rear plays normally like the Right Rear.
Also when this version of Texas Chain Saw Massacre: 40th Anniversary Blu-ray came out in around 2014, I'm speculating that most probably only listened to it in 5.1 audio not 7.1 audio so the issue may not have been noticeable.
If anyone else can confirm this; I would appreciate it. I also wonder if there might have been a different pressing of this 40th anniversary from the All New 4k Digital Restoration release?
Movies must be OAR, sports and movies must also have 5.1 audio, No EE or NO SALE!
