    Just read over at the digital bits that Universal have fixed the Jurassic Park DTS track on new pressings of the movie. Unfortunetely, Universal will not be replacing the discs. <br />Its a shame because i really want a fixed release but its not worth buying the movie again.

    Anyway, here you go: <a href="http://www.thedigitalbits.com/" target="_blank">http://www.thedigitalbits.com/</a>

    Whats your view on this?

    In reviews people always mentioned that the bass on the DTS was lacking. I thought it was fine....that was ofcourse until i got a sub...Jurassic Park DTS was the only DVD that failed to gain much improvement by the addition of a sub. Ofcourse this is fixed by adding extra values to the sub while watching Jurassic Park. However, i heard that the new disc is suppose to be perfect and just like it should be.

    This has been coming a long time. I was at DTS last November and they were not happy with how the DVD sounded. They wouldn't be drawn on a definite answer, but the gist of it was that a new version would be pressed. It's now been available for a few weeks.

    There was a problem with the way the bass was mixed. As well as a lot of the bass being moved from the LFE channel to the L/R mains, it was also 4db lower than it should have been.

    The problem is, Universal have made it very difficult to spot the new pressing. The ONLY definite way of spotting the new disc is to look on the inner most part of the DVD itself and check for "D2R2". The original disc had "D2R1".

    Well it looks like all your scepticism is misplaced. According to the digital bits Universal are going to replace the defective DTS discs. Can you believe that Universal are actually going to help out their customers, this must be a first.

    I will be calling them today to see if I can get my disc replaced, even though it will probably be cheaper for me to order a new one once I have paid for postage and packaging. Oh well at least Universal are making the effort.

    More info can be found at the digital bits

    The defective disc is their fault, so they should pay shipping costs!
