I have to disagree, the audio on the blu ray is disappointing as the bass is filtered. It is very much a mix for the home. I've still got the THX laserdisc and although only a lossy DD5.1 it totally blows away the blu ray in terms of sound. When we first see Maverick and Goose it sounds fantastic on the LD but poor by comparison on the blu ray. The LD has the bass where it's needed and never encroaches into the music, a proper cinema audio experience. I managed to get my LD player working again a couple of years ago so was able to compare with the blu ray and confirmed how good the sound was on the LD, picture quality was terrible though.The audio on the Blu-Ray is certainly fantastic and the fact it included both a TrueHD and DTS-HD MA track was something of a rarity but have a feeling the new Atmos track will blow us away
Also glad to read it’s apparently getting a new remaster but hopefully the colour will be a little more subdued than the one they did for the 3D release.
Even on VHS it was my go to movie for a surround sound demo. The Migs flying past and the sound from the rear speakers was great and my setup at the time was a 29" Toshiba surround sound TV. I blame Top Gun for getting me hooked on home cinema.Haven’t watched it for a few years but certainly found it wasn’t lacking in the bass department but before the BD I had only watched it on DVD and VHS in stereo haha
