the waveforms don't tell the whole story but they don't lie; the actual content in each channel of the respective discs is different (please see my additional comments in the edit of my previous message).Perhaps visually NOT ....... but AURALLY ..........YES! The MLP DVD~A 5.1 is a stunner, at least on my system ...... and I own enough DD/DTS dualdiscs to KNOW THE DIFFERENCE!
edit: sorry Ralph, i don't want to shut down that aspect of the conversation altogether but i feel the "lossy vs lossless" debate is not relevant in this particular instance; the DualDisc multichannel mixes exhibit greater differences than anyone might perceive by taking any old lossless 5.1 mix and encoding it with a lossy codec such as Dolby Digital. if you want i can do just that and "turn" the Britney MLP 5.1 into Dolby Digital 5.1 to illustrate the point (not right now though, i'm away from the computer just grabbing a quick bite of dinner
edit: upped vote here for the Britney DVD-Audio to an "8" and voted a "5" in Jon's new Britney DualDisc Poll.
