    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 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

    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

    Re: tommorow is a good day for high def owners

    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

    Well... Then I believe you... But, I am sure where the real difference is would be in the general dynamics. Which are a good thing to have...

    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.
