I also love Master and Commander. It's my go-to disc for demos. However, I need to buy it on DVD to compare to the BD version. Supposedly the BD version has a 25hz filter on it, and a lot of people say the DVD sounds better because it has much better(lower)bass. I'm sure a lot of you guys have read that thread on AVS. Has anybody compared the DVD to the BD?
My new amp arrives on Tuesday. I'm thinking I need to buy a new Blu-Ray to test it out once it's hooked up. If I buy one new demo disc, what would you suggest?
Sounds like you're looking for a movie with great sound then (vs. justa music source?). If so here are some greats!:
"Master & Commander" "Saving Private Ryan" (has anything beat that D-Day beach landing for audio yet?!) "Cloverfield" "Crazy Heart" "Slumdog Millionairie" "Taken" "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" "The Hurt Locker" "The Town" "War Horse"
Enjoy! (And be sure to report back your experiances! )
The disc was made by an AVS member, Scubasteve. That's where the name came from. I'm sure if you goggle it you can find a bunch of links pointing you towards it. Here's a couple of screen shots of the main menu and the sub menus:
I found references to the project on the AVS site. From what I gather, you have to have burning and authoring software and download it to your hard drive. Even if I had a Blu-Ray burner, this looks to be quite a project. Can the disc be purchased?
You used to be able to purchase it, but i think copyright laws started coming into play so he stopped selling the disc. To be honest after buying my copy a while back I stopped following the thread so I'm not exactly sure how things stand now.
