Just think about how much better it would have been in PCM/lossless. Guess we'll just have to wait until the Blu-Ray comes out.

I believe Ice Age 2 was MPEG2 and that was awesome.

I do have a very nice system, nothing that touches Kenny's but nice.

And their it is! SACD and DVD Audio were huge advancements in sound quality but since J6P thought MP3 was good enough it died. Here we have an opportunity with BD to ALWAYS have PCM/Lossless for those that can hear the difference and DD+ or 1.5 DTS core or dolby Pro-logic surround if you prefer for everyone else. It comes back to space and BANDWIDTH.

And Lotus I'm sorry your "golden ear" is not quite good enough because the difference is there and it is beautiful.
