    Just recieved my disc from DTS and it rocks!

    One sequence is from TITAN AE and sounds sublime, does anyone have this on disc and what is the film story like,is it worth a purchase?

    By the way the demo disc is only for trade puposes and not available to the public.

    Titan AE has a fantastic DTS soundtrack and I thought the film was excellent

    Folks,

    DTS demonstration discs aren't just for the trade, DTS are willing (anxious) to give them away to anyone who should ask. They even tried to give me a whole box of #5 at CES.

    Just telephone or E-mail DTS at: 0118 9349199 or dtsinfo@dtsonline.co.uk and ask politely.

    I e-mailed them (asked very nicely) and got the following response;

    'Thank you for your email and interest in DTS. Unfortunately we are unable to
    provide demo discs for members of the public, this is entirely due to
    contractural obligations. These discs are only available for people with
    links to the industry. If you would like a consumer information pack then
    please let me know.
    Kind Regards

    Well I have a link to the industry, I buy their products!!!!

    Well Mr Robinson or any any of you nice "insiders". Why not take a box full and dish them out to us scroungers on a first crawled first come basis? Or how about competitions? Surely it would be a popular choice of prize for the site.

    Guys,

    I'm amazed DTS won't send you demo #5, everywhere I go they're handing the discs out with reckless abandon to anyone who stumbles past their booth. As a last resort I suggest sending an E-mail to Sabrina Heraux (sheraux@dtstech.com), she's usually responsible for this type of thing.

    After a little investigation, it turns out that my organisation does have approximately 130 copies of DTS demo #5 so given the apparent demand we'll need to come up with a method of giving them away that will a) cost me nothing and b) not be seen as a promotion for DTS.

    Ideas on a postcard...

    I tried contacting DTS regarding a free demo disc last Year and was given the same reply as above....in fact it was the EXACT same response as above so they must be asked this question quite lot if they have a standard reply for it.

    130 discs!!!!! Wow...I am sure we can all come up with some 'cunning plan' to get them...lol
    I would be quite willing to send a stamped self addressed jiffy bag along....it is just the DTS promotion bit that has me stumped.

    They're just posh coasters, or if you prefer, Drink Table Savers aren't they? [​IMG]

    SAE seems a sensible option.

    You're not promoting DTS. You're just trying to shed some light on the whole DD/DTS debate by giving people a chance to hear for themselves...

    I would also like a copy, p&p paid etc.

    I can't see how it can be a DTS promotion if you only give your spare discs to those who request one.

    Thanks,
    Adam Hamilton.

    When I emailed David DelGrosso (DTS Marketing chap), I took the opportunity to ask whether we could have some copies to give away in a competition.
    Maybe that will come to fruition and some people would then get a copy free.
    We should know in a few days.

    I recieved my DTS Demo Disc 5 today. Yes gotta agree that Titan AE clip is fantastic. I am sure the Lost World clip sounded better than the original, cant compare anymore as i only borrowed "The Lost World".

    It'd be nice if they had a new trailer on there but i dont suppose they had the time to come up with another one.

    Yeah Gareth i too was a little disapointed that there wasn't a new DTS trailer. I'm tired off the flying Digital experience one, and the Yamaha piano one is a little dissapointing.
    I remember that when DTS was first introduced to cinemas there was a bumble bee type trailer,but i've never seen this or if it actually exists. Any one seen this.

    Now all i want are the THX trailers inc. The Simpsons one.But i gues we will never see these on DVD.I looked for years to get my hands on the THX wow LD, with no luck.

    I also put that bit in about the discs being for trade only because i had trouble for years getting my hands on things from DTS inc. those replys above.In the end my supplier has the same surname and i'm sure this is the only reason i get them when i ask. Sorry.(BTW Surname IS Hin**n)work it out from above post.

    Re the "free" DTS demo disc that no-one is giving away bcos its promotion ...
    I think they should be taken out of circulation immediately and if you send one to me I promise to wear it out by continually playing it in my DVD player - Can't say fairer than that ...
    PS I too will pay P&P for the pleasure [​IMG]

    Folks,

    When I mentioned not wanting to promote DTS, the reasons why should be fairly clear; I would not like to bias my position by promoting one company or their products over another.

    That said, I've come up with a way to give away all the DTS demonstration discs without recipients of said discs having to pay for postage and/or packaging, I feel that's only fair since the discs were originally given to my organisation.

    Allow me a few days to iron out the specifics and then discs will be allotted on a first-come first-served basis. I don't think there's much point turning this into a competition of any sorts.

    I hate to break this to you, but there is a DVD that contains all the THX trailers up to 1998. Produced by Lucasfilm to celebrate their 15th anniversary and produced in very limited quantities, it contains 'Broadway', 'Cimarron', 'Grand', 'The Simpsons', 'Tex' and 'Tex 2- Moo Can'.

    [​IMG]

    There are two further THX trailers, 'Broadway 2000' and 'Tex 2000' (both remixed in Dolby Digital Surround EX with the second elongated) and they're available on the THX Surround EX demonstration disc, also produced in very small quantities.

    I'm a bit late into this thread, but how about a transport relay ring ?.
    I for one would be prepared to drive say 20 miles from base to convey a few discs, and it would be interesting to meet fellow enthusiasts.
    Is this viable or am I verging on the saddo side ? [​IMG]
