Hi i was just wondering what sort of prices these sell for?
I've never been able to buy one but was loaned one by my installer - frankly it was quite a dissappointment., with the pod race scene from SW 1 (thats Star Wars not south west London) being the worst. Horrible grainy picture and overblown bass.
No i just mean, i may be able to acquire some that i wont want
Ah well then, about 50P
Seriously if you can give me a PM.
Still dont know what the going rate is though
oops Hope I've not screwed up a sale for you.
Nah ive not got anything to sell yet.
I have no idea what they retail for, couldn't see anything similar on Ebay to judge from. If you can find out more put me down on the interested list too please.
I think there are different THX demo discs, with some selling for more than others. Last summer, I saw some going on eBay for £10-£15, so I presume they were the better ones. Although you have to bear in mind that there are a lot of nonces on eBay who have more money than sense and frequently pay over the odds.
I assume they're gonna go on the trading forum then.
If you get Lilo & Stitch R1 then there is a THX test on that. Tones from different speaker, phasing and video contrast, brightness & alignment. I don't know if that is what you are looking for.
I don't think so: THX demo discs are just like DTS and DD5.1 demo discs. They are DVDs with scenes from films that are supposed to test your system. ie the podrace has fast movements and great sound and so u can see if your system handles them well, or not.
There is an official THX disc that was used for the CES 2002 show.
I have one and it's ace. To the poster who mentioned EP1 pod race; the sound was excellent on my set up and on many thers too, and the picture is horribly grainy anyway, EP1 had one of the most disappointing pictures ever!,(i'm not flaming, just wonder whether you'd seen a bottleg? They do exist, sadly).
Anyways, these discs were fetching up to $500 on ebay.com last year, (and i ain't joking!), and there aren't that many about - so try scouring as many places as you can!
Some ace stuff on there, the old THX WOW! trailer has dated but is still great stuff, as are the THX trailers themselves, love the Simpsons one
Good featurettes and music segments too.
Ahh Westy from DVD reviwer i believe. didnt realise that some have gone for that sort of money.
Is this some kind of subclass of a bootleg
I have the THX Surround EX demo disc which has:
THX Broadway 2000 Trailer (The Audience is Listening)
Jungle Sounds (Audio Only)
Austin Powers: Spy Who Shagged Me (Trailer)
The Astronauts Wife (Trailer)
Broken Logo Trailer (Extended for Surround EX)
Channel Setup (Female Voice)
Channel Setup (Male Voice)
Channel Setup (Broadband Pink Noise)
Channel Setup (Bandpass Noise)
Aside from the trailers (which are crap) the rest of the material is excellent.
Where did you get it from?
I want this
Thats the one ive just got. maybe able to get a couple more soon.
I'll have one off you then
What about DTS demo discs, they worth anything?
