[Request] Whole Nine Yards (2000) any decent audio?
#1
This movie was never released on Blu Ray, but there are okay HDTVs and one WEB-DL that looks pretty similar. 

The HDTVs have the 448 kbps DVD 5.1 AC3 audio. The WEB-DL is a slight upgrade, with 640 kbps E-AC3 5.1. 

But, is there anything better out there? This is kind of a shame really, I think it's a fun movie. I know I once had a VHS tape of it. I don't know much about VHS, but I read there was some "HIFI" technology that was supposedly rather good? I have a good audio interface. Would some cheap HIFI VHS player allow me to get a good analogue capture of the audio? Would probably be Dolby Surround then I guess, which is fine by me.

Don't see any LDs out there.

Might have a Cinema DTS somewhere in the far depths of the internet? Probably not, as it's not really that popular a movie I guess, seeing as it doesn't even get a Blu Ray release. So strange.

DVDs all seem to have the 448kbps 5.1 AC3, or some rather low bitrate AC3 2.0.

It is streaming on Netflix US at the moment... Looks good and sounds good to me (though I hadn't even seen the film since it came out on VHS). The audio was definitely DD 5.1 (384 kbps, I believe)... though I am sure that it is the same mix as the DVD/HDTV/WEB-DL.

Sometimes you can get lucky and find film prints on ebay with the DTS discs included... I vaguely remember seeing a 35mm print of the film on ebay some time ago, but it's possible I'm mistaken. With that being said, there are other user(s) who have acquired/shared/synced Cinema DTS audio for other projects in the past... Maybe they could be of assistance?

Thanks nafroe. At the moment I don't see any 35mm prints. I know about the Cinema DTS discs, but this movie doesn't appear on the list on OT.com, so I assumed it wasn't available.
