I am just happy we have a REAL step up in audio with Blu-ray!!! I have been able to A-B DD/DTS to MC PCM and the difference is HUGE! I can't wait to get to fire up the new Denon pre/pro and run DTS MA HD to it!!!!!!!!!
I am also amazed at the difference between DD/DTS and Lossless MC PCM. I am hearing small details in the soundtracks that I never could hear as clearly before. Not to mention the dynamic gains.
I switched from a B&K Ref 20 to the Denon 3808CI both used as pre/pros. Night and day difference. The new codecs are awesome! The more titles with DTS-HD MA released the better for us early adopters.
