PR disc arrived in the post this morning, unfortunately I won't be able to watch it properly until tomorrow, but I've just put the first chapter on and O-M-G:eek: :eek: :eek:

Utterly stonking soundtrack. Only tried DTS, but if the rest of the film holds up like the first few minutes, we're in for a treat. Wonderful use of surrounds, with an atmospheric mix that sucks you in immediately, deep yet subtle bass and a shift in dynamics that will have you sucking in your breath.

I played it back at -5db and all I can say is :eek: :eek: :D :eek: :eek:

Can't wait to watch this properly - review should be up by Sunday.

Are the review discs exactly the same as consumers will buy as regards sound and picture detail ?

Cdwow are showing the R1 version of Master & Commander having DTS, and not the R2 version- Does the R2 version have DTS as well:confused:

Well it was blasting out in my cinema room in DTS this morning:D

Picture quality is a different matter to the sound though:(
