    I've got a 925 as well, and I agree that DTS and DD sounds better than it does on DVD. I believe Laserdisc uses a higher bit rate for the compressed audio, which would explain the difference.

    I find that DTS in particular has a clarity and sense of space on LD that is missing from DVD.

    I still have a pair of 925s (to save my weary legs) and have to agree that the sound is better but I was under the impression that it was to do with greater dynamic range. Is this a space problem on DVDs (i.e. lack of) or a deliberate attempt to save our ears?
