[In progress] True Lies - open matte, film regraded
(2020-08-06, 12:36 PM)spoRv Wrote: About English tracks: I have them somewhere at home in Italy, dunno when I'll be there again though, maybe I can ask some friend to get them and upload somewhere for me. They are:
DTS 5.1 from D-Theater
DTS 6.1 from DVD
Cinema DTS 5.1
I have also the DTS laserdisc, still it should be captured personally, unless someone else has done it already!

Fantastic selection of tracks!

I have the DTS-HD MA from the Spanish bootleg. I don't know if it's any good compared to the above, because I believe I read it was sourced from the D-Theater. If indeed that's the case, then you already have the original.

My bet is that the Cinema and LD track should be the best, it that right?

So, Sporv, will you erase the burnt-in subs as considered before?

From the late Disclord. The AC3 LD audio will be of most interest as it is a remix. Other audio releases are the theatrical mix untouched at different bitrates.

Quote:I have the AC-3 LaserDisc of True Lies plus the DTS LaserDisc and the Pan-Scan AC-3 LaserDisc - I also have the R1 DVD.

In terms of picture quality, the DTS is the clear winner - it has less edge enhancement and the Kuraray mastering and pressing is sharper and has less noise than either two of Pioneer's AC-3 pressings. An engineer at Fox told me, back when the DVD was released, that they used the same D1 master tape, that had extra edge enhancement, to make both the AC-3 LaserDisc and the DVD release. However, the sound on the DVD used the same 18-bit DA88 master tape that was used to make the DTS LaserDisc release. The AC-3 LD's used a 16-bit master that had been slightly remixed for home use whereas the 18-bit master used for the DTS LD and AC-3 DVD was an exact duplicate (bit-for-bit clone) of the theatrical mix used to make the 70mm prints and DTS/Dolby Digital 35mm prints.

Its a shame that True Lies is only available in HD on D-Theater because this film needs a state-of-the-art HD transfer and release on BD - even for the time its LaserDisc and DVD transfer was not that good. But the sound of the DTS LD is truly amazing - it's another film where the sound mixers recorded real multichannel backgrounds and such to greatly increase the realism of the audio.

This is contradictory to the article I posted that said the DTS DVD audio track was a new mix specifically for the Fox 5-Star Collection.
