 For the PQ Tier Thread, please click here.


after picking up my jaw from the floor following Underworld, i thought there should be a thread dedicated to audio quality on our bd discs. underworld is perhaps the best sounding bd i've heard out of my whole collection, i even popped in potc: dmc to make sure i wasn't wrong and to me the 16bit lpcm sounded better than the 24bit lpcm on dmc.


List so far. I'll try to maintain this as much as i can tho it will prob idle through weekends. when posting suggestion please give full title and audio option (best available and one listened to if diff). i'll add poster's name at the end so we'd know who to flame.


*Listing is in alphabetical order. If you made a post and i did not put your choice in the tier, please PM me with the choice and make sure you provide a tier number. Also please list the track you are rating, and also distinguish DTS-MA core and lossless.

need someone with enough free time to maintain a page like that of the video tier thread i think.

And said person must be able to listen in all avail audio codexs. I would think it would need to be multi tiered. Since I think we all know that something that might make tier 0 in lossless might not make it on the core track.

DTS MA can't come soon enough to break out the audio on some of my titles

.


I agree with

DMD

NIN

Black Hawk Down being Teir zero

Ghost Rider (despite the movie sucking)

The Wild


I'll have to revisit the thread with some others later.

I believe PS3 downconverted the audio to a DTS track but still one of the most agressive surround IMHO. I think we need to set a criteria before we can identify the tier they belong to. Also note that we have different setup and listening environment.
