    My holy grail with my HC has been making sure I get the maximum amount of bass possible from what I have ( and not forgetting a great clear sound as well :) )

    I have tried LOADS of things ( just look back on here ;) ) but I think that I have just found the ultimate test for checking.

    Its free ( well should be to the majority of DVD owners ) and its easy.

    Just get hold of a Universal Pictures DVD ( such as American Pie 2 or TFATF ) and play the universal trailer, the one which starts with George Clooney clicking open his Zippo lighter.

    Try it

    I know what you mean... my favourite studio logo.

    And to think people complained this wasn't as good as the original Universal Globe. It's fantastic... I turn it up as loud as possible everytime... DUM DUM! DUM DUM!

    Never thought about using it as a test before but last night the difference between small and large was HUGE using this demo.

    With all speakers set as small and bass just going to my REL, the DUM sounds were deep, with plenty of slam and depth, never was a sound over blown, it was lovely sounding and controlled.

    However when speakers were tunred to large, the drop in the amount of bass was noticable straight away

    I have to agree, it is a good demo.

    Always had my speakers set to small, bass to sub.

    Gives me the best performance in my setup.:D

    What intro?

    I am probably being thick, but I have American Pie 2 and can't find a 'Universal Intro' like you described.

    Where does it live on the disk?

    Is it classed as an extra?

    Looking forwards to finding out....

    :D

    It's the studio house trailer that always comes on before any film. The Universal Globe is the same as the Warner Brothers Shield, the Paramount Mountain, the Columbia Lady, the Fox... er, thing with spotlights. :D

    Ahh.. I see.. Not the univeral logo you get when you put the disk in, but when you start the film.

    I havn't actually watched the film yet (on DVD anyhow), so will take a look tonight

    Cheers

    Jon
