    Just finished with the R1 disc, which is identical to the Jap R2 in terms of picture and sound (inc dts) however the extras are more comprehensive on the R1 disc. Have not seen the R2 (uk)disc.

    I looked there on Friday and it is not showing anything at all for X-Men 2. I find it a bit of a bad site to navigate is it still there?
    By the way what does R3 output NTSC or Pal and is there any speed up compared with R1?

    As deanjamin says it seems to have been sold out now... :(

    For what it's worth R3 is NTSC, and I have never found any difference at all between PAL and NTSC in terms of speedup, and I don't really see how a 4% change can be heard by the human ear anway (certainly not my human ear!).

    :confused:


    I find it hard to believe that 4% can be detectable, but if people say they can hear it then I guess it must be... Certainly doesn't bother me in the slightest though :)

    I suppose it if you are use to something rather than hearing it speeded up or slowed down all the time.

    The other week I dug out a 45 single that I had not heard for ages and put it on my Linn record deck, (if you know how they work the motor runs at one speed for 33 and 45 rpm and the speed is altered by a larger sleeve that fits over the drive wheel. I had not got it on right and the belt was being driven of the tapered bit) I instantly noticed it seemed slow and the singers voice was deeper, this was 15 seconds on 4 minutes. I’m not saying it was bad but as I knew the piece of music also at one time I was able to write music from just hearing it, near enough perfect note for note.

    So as Squirrel implies musicians may pick up on it more when comparing rather than not comparing, or never to the untrained ear.

    As regards the DVD I think I go for the better picture over the better sounding one if there is not much in them.
