The Blu-ray release arrived yesterday and I did a comparison spin against the Box Set's DVD.
I acknowledge and recognize that I do not posses the mastery of acoustical science that so many members on this forum posses. Still I love surround.
With that said, I have to say that I like the way my system decodes the DVD over the Bluray on the same player.
It might be in my head, but I feel there is a subtle difference in clarity and depth with the edge going to the DVD.
It is not enough of a difference where I wouldn't vote the same score for the Bluray as I did for the DVD ( a 9 by-the-way) but it is enough that I think I will revisit the DVD more often. I know that I am lucky enough to have both formats.
If you like the genre, I really do recommend you picking up a copy of the Bluray before they disappear (the price is right).
The mix is good and the source material is an underrated jem.
Not sure if it means anything but the DVD offers the following audio channels on the menu: DTS 96/24 5.1 Surround & Dolby AC3 5.1 Surround.
The Bluray lists: DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 & 96/24 5.1 LCPM
The DVD's AC3 format decodes out to dolby digital on my receiver and that is the one that seems to sound the best. Again, maybe its me and my system.
