x2 no kidding, and if you get a up-convert DVD player there is little difference.

you must have one hell of an upconvert then....

my sony upconvert looks grainy as hell compared to blu-ray. Even on a 720p tv....the 1080p just extends the difference.

not a fan of the pirates movies...not sure why.

Is the matrix trilogy on blu-ray?

little difference when the transfer's ****, say like in a title like talledega nights.

but these are reference titles which ive seen in action and many others. the best of the best in terms of picture quality for both pirates and matrix

also the sound :eek: matrix comes with truehd and pirates with 24bit uncompressed sound!

dvd is no match in sound at all unless your running a bose 3-2-1 system :laugh:

btw putting a dvd in my setup and only that is like buying a lambo and putting 87 octane :P: my setup retails close to 20 grand so i am not gonna skimp on the source material :cool:

Blah.... SO?

I hate both of those movies....


Is uncompressed really that good anyway? There is a limit to the amount of compression the human brain can even hear. Uncompressed audio seems like a bit of a gimmick especially since the players and receivers that they have out there are very much none hi-fi brands....

(besides Denon, but even Denon is a tad limited and I find contempt for it over other processors/receivers)

if my ears can hear a difference between dts and uncompressed then im sure yours can

some tracks are 16 bit and some are 24 bit but thats where it gets hard to tell the difference.

only thing is if you have neighbors that hate loud music then truehd might not be for you, dialog say you turn up like a regular dts track but during an explosion gets hella louder and undistorted (well at least in my setup)

theirs also an sq difference. but when i was running my old receiver i really couldnt hear much of a difference from a truehd track to a dolby digital track.

if your into movies and your equipment has analog inputs or hdmi (ps3 doesnt have the ouputs for that but some hd-dvd/blu ray players out put trueh through hdmi or analog) then i would recommend looking into it. if not then fudge it lol.

if you do demo if possible get a movie like the wild,casino royale and compare both the uncompressed tracks and compressed and ill guarantee you theirs a difference in sound (if the system is up to it at the place you demo it)

ive seen people who after demoing something like that make threads asking why their expensive system doesnt sound like it and that they doubt its cause of the lossless tracks but it is..

docutech whats your thoughts on blu ray playing an uncomporessed track and say dts?

i dont know the settings you run on your receiver either but i just run the manual eq and have the receiver on "pure direct" with no other processing

The Matrix would be very tempting. I only really like the first matrix and the Animatrix.
Know if they'll be making those HD seperate?

PS3 does have HDMI. The 60 gig model has HDMI, and you have to go into the systems menu to make the sound go through it.

I will probably do the matrix but not pirates. And for those that say there is little difference between hd / blue ray and an upconverting dvd player, you must be watching movies on a 17" screen or have never really watched a movie in HD. My god there is a MASSIVE difference. Newer titles on blue ray are amazing picture quality wise.

and omfg the sound is just amazing. i was hoping a little more picture wise but it was also amazing. probably best thing ive seen picture quality wise but i stil lwanted more lol

lots and lots of bass :)

HAHAH, Im right there with you on that. I have giant 27" panasonic, I think this d@mn thing was made in 1996 or sumthing, sum of a b*itch weighs a ton. The worst part is that I have a PS3 and it makes the games look horrible.

PS3 - $700

Casino Royale on Blu-ray - $38.00

lol....

"this one is filmed in HD, and this one is filmed in H Double D!"

and :fyi: - the matrix ****** balls.

I want an HD player, but im not investing any money in one until a clear winner between the two is apparent... It looks like Blu-ray is winning ATM (i was hoping Hd-dvd would win so I didnt have to buy a ps3 :lol:), but im still not investing until there is a clear winner, or the prices drop to $50-75 for each player.

blu ray did get a big 2 to 1 sales jump when the p3 came out

but it has died big time! their toe to toe right now

you got to think about all those ps3 owners not all own hdtv's so they probably bought a movie or two in hopes of seeing a difference but didnt.

and at $40 per fox title and no extras at all and their lowest quality disc's (bd 25-mpeg2 no uncompressed track that is usable)

people arent gonna keep buying those.

and now that fox and disney have delayed ALL their titles just makes things worst for blu ray

and universal is releasing like 100 titles from this month to like 3 months and blu ray gets like 20 if that lol

btw the matrix was just AMAZING i got back from exchanging my broken disc and watch the last movie and wow if you dont like the matrix i dunno what you like!

i did get pirates 2 on blu ray though but im watching that one tonight.

I can tell a difference in sound from the PS3 and my Oppo. THe difference is mainly in the special effecs (explosions, ambient sound, separation etc) I also have my receiver set to "Pure Direct"

I dont own a HD player so I couldnt tell you what it sounds like compared to what I hear.

****it I wish The Matrix would come out on Blue Ray!

well for $250 you can get one (hda2 plus you get 5 movies):naughty:

the picture quality is a tad better on most titles on hd-dvd but blu ray has more titles with uncompressed tracks.

oh yah their $299 at best buy and you get the 5 movies from toshiba and if you buy the matrix at the same time htey give you 2 more movies on the spot!


btw every time neil and mister smith where fighting the bass would shake the ish out of my chair! a good amount of 20-30 hertz bass

oh yah did you pick up pirates or not a pirates fan? i only picked up part 2 just for the hell of it. i really cant wait for teh spidy movies to hit blu ray but that wont be for months

hmmm. so HDDVD could still come out ahead :)

id like to see that. I still dont see why microsoft doesent start incorporating the HD DVD drive into the 360. seems to me like it would boost the consoles popularity, and also HD DVD's popularity.

regaurdless of that though, thats some good info to know, i still thought it was blu all the way :)
