    Underworld Extended Edition Japanese DTS-ES

    Arguably the loudest, most aggressive soundtrack I've heard/own.

    The Haunting DTS region 1 version ( best ever for constant bass and dynamics to test your speaker system )

    Hero - Region 3 fullbitrate DTS version
    Cutthroat Island - Japanese edition ( picture quality sucks because of excessive edge enhancement but soundtrack is dynamic and hot )
    Dinosaur - 2 disc collectors edition ( bitrate is lower on the 1 disc edition as it contains a fullscreen version of the film on the same disc )

    Usually its the soundmix being different which determines the quality of the DTS soundtrack when the soundmix is identical ( Blade 2 as an example ) differences are negligible on a well set up system.

    They've been said before but you really can't go wrong with Jurassic Park, Blade and Blade II, Gladiator, Saving Private Ryan, LOTR trilogy and T2. Anybody second these?

    • Kill Bill Vol 1+2 set (R2 Japanese Edition - stunning musical soundtrack, esp. Vol 2; eerily realistic sound effects, again esp. Vol 2)
    • Predator SE (R2 - loud; very slick directional and background effects particularly in the guerilla camp scene)
    • Hellboy (R1 Director's Cut)
    • Pirates of the Carribean (R2 - typically loud Bruckheimer; great score; booming effects)
    • Lost In Translation (R2 - the soundtrack is amazing; the karaoke scene in particular "sounds like you're there" to give it some marketing spiel :); this isn't big on effects obviously but the audio clarity is astounding)

    Just bought a music DVD at the weekend of Paul Simon in concert in Paris called "You're the One". Splendid widescreen picture and a superb audio soundtrack (DTS and DD are provided) one of the best I've heard on a music video. Very big backing band with a wide range of percussion as well as a variety of acoustic and electric instruments, all superbly reproduced.

    Checked the bitrate too and it seems to be a constant 9 meg or more. :smashin:

    :offtopic: a superb, but "questionable" joke refering to a "spat" between two members was removed by the author :D (it was funny though)


    on topic - band of brothers R1 DTS: episode 6 - the LFE will level the house and is far and away the best LFE track i've heard, i was scared, really scared.

    Crikey just a few then!!!

    I have the LOTR set, Behind Enemy Lines, Black Hawk Down, Hellboy, Alien v Predator, Gladiator, i-Robot, Hannibal box set and x-men 2. Still trying to hunt down Saving Private Ryan that isn't a stupid price. So far I'm most impressed with my Band of Brothers box set and Behind Enemy Lines, the sound is just awesome on these two. My system is a Panasonic TX32PD50C hooked up to a JVC TH-V70R cinema system. I find that a DTS soundtrack is fantastic when compared to a DD so I would like to expand my DTS library. Keep the suggestions coming people.

    Hi mate, I'm not sure how much you want to pay for Ryan DTS but CD-Wow are selling the DTS R3 version for £7.99 [link] (being CD-Wow, you'll get at least 50p off again with the array of discount codes on the net) and Bensons World are selling the 2 disc SE R2 for £10.99 which apparently includes the DTS track too [link], both with free UK delivery. Hope this helps!

    Cheers,

    Colin

    On the way back from work tonight we popped into Sainsburys (East Kilbride store) where I picked up Behind Enemy Lines for £5.99! I couldn't resist jumping to the scene where they get shot down and it's incredible - a fantastic showcase for DTS if ever there was one with super-sharp effects and flawless steering but I feel the need to wait until the neighbours have gone out and ramp the sub waaaaay up :devil:

    They also had Enemy At The Gates for £5.99 and Master and Commander (Single Disc Version) for £5.99 too so you can pick up a few top titles on the list everyone is recommending for about £20! You can off course get some of these titles online at or around this price but next time you're out picking up the shopping, it might be worth checking the DVD counter :)

    so true! the flyovers are awesome and you can feel the plane fly _through_ you, the amount of bass it kicks out. my first film with a "proper" subwoofer (not cheapo starlogic at a mates house!), boy did that justify my purchase :D

    No mention of Monsters Inc? Great DTS track with no speech or music, just effects and foley, quite a subtle test.

    yeah they didn't allow it through - still £6.99 is still a decent price.
