Audio on Master and Commander

Has anyone heard this disc, I know the film isnt great but the opening battle has to be heard to be believed. Even on quieter passages all the channels are alive with the creeking and squeeking ship hull. Straight into my reference demo line up!

Yep, the audio is brilliant. I enjoyed the movie also.

The creaking and groaning of the ship all around is excellent.

I have to agree about the audio,the first time I watched it I thought the wall behind me was coming down .
Army Bloke most of the movies I have watched lately the display shows it as 6.1 surround or THX Surround EX.....on my Denon A11.

Probably because you have the surround back channel switched on in the set up menu...

Watched this the other night Thunder and totally agree, the sound really is amazing. Didnt think a great deal to the film it was alright but am contemplating keeping it just for the reference quality sound track.

Chard,

Is that DTS ES Matrix or Discrete 6.1 ?

I heard this with smurfins set up. I have to agree it sounded and felt excellent. Definately a demo disk. Only watched a bout 5 minutes.

haven't watched the film yet, but will definatel buy it for the sound alone. I will hopefully make my setup sound as good as Smurfins, or somewhere near it anyway.

Its DTS ES matrix, but a very good one :) I had to knock it down from my normal -10db to -15db as it was quite loud at the beginning.

Cant see how my question is off topic????

I made a simple query whether the 1 disc edition is DTS or not

It is not off topic, you are talking about the audio :confused:

Anyway. the 1 disc version is just the first disc with the film. So, it does have DTS.

anyone have a problem with the DTS soundtrack for the first 15 seconds of the movie? on my disc its dropping out a lot, then it settles and is fine for the rest of the film.

yep great soundtrack only let down by the dynamic range being so damn big, I kept having to turn it up for dialogue scenes and down for battle scenes, which is always annoying. I loved the below deck scenes where you could hear people walking on deck above, really excellent how they managed that.

Oh and I loved the film.

My R2 single disc version has the same problem on the DTS soundtrack that you describe. Those of you that say you don't have the problem, do you have R1 or R2 discs?

grease monkey: where and roughly when did you buy it?

sounds like there might be a dodgy batch around. a couple of ppl on the hitchhikers meridian site have also reported similar problems.

Watched mine yesterday but the sound was great but I thought it was hard to tell what they was saying also, and I didn't think there was as much bass in the opening battle as I would have liked.
I might try and turn the bass up a couple of notches and give it another go.

dave H, There is serious bass in that film, I heard, no felt it when I went to pick up a sub from smurfin. My setup, whilst very good, couldn't do what smurfins SVS did, his sub is a beast!

The sound is aswome on that film though, especially the use of the surrounds. have top agree with James45 concerning the below deck scenes, awsome effects, the sound engineer must be the best in his field to achieve that.
