Hi, I've noticed that on certain DVDs the dialogue sometimes crackles slightly in places. It sounds similar to amplifier clipping but it happens even at low volumes, and I've noticed it on numerous systems, including very high end speakers/amplification, and I'm sure it's not that. As an example I cite Star Trek Insurrection (R2), though I remember hearing it on several other DVDs as well. I wonder, has anyone else noticed this? Is it part of the recorded audio on the DVD? Or is it a failing of the playback hardware at some point? I find it hard to believe that sound engineers putting all that time/money/effort into perfecting a high quality DD 5.1 soundtrack would miss fairly obvious clipping noises - but I'm equally convinced it ain't my speakers or amps! What gives?? Cheers, Dunc P.S. - I'll list more examples when I encounter them.
