I apologize if this has been talked to death. I have not been on AVS for awhile. I visited today expecting this to be a hot topic and I really couldn't find anything on it. Anyway - I understand that some studios (seemingly more and more) are releasing rental version with only compressed audio tracks and no extras. I could care less about the extras but the downgraded audio is an issue for me. I get that they do this to 'persuade' us to purchase the film but ... for me at least it does exactly the opposite. Generally I will not purchase until I have watched it first and I generally don't watch those with the downgraded audio. In my case at least - this strategy is backfiring for them. But I pay the price as well. Is there anything we can do about this? Anyone written to the studios etc?
