DTS-HD MA 2.0 track on 'Evil Dead II' UK Blu-ray release
Hi everyone,

I don't know if a lot of people are aware of this, so i apologise if this was already a known fact. But apparently the UK 25th anniversary edition blu-ray of 'Evil Dead 2' has a DTS-HD MA 2.0 track. It isn't listed on the back of my own UK copy, and what is also strange is when you go into the menu and look trough the audio options, you can select it as a "2.0 LPCM stereo" track.

I know it can happen sometimes.. that you own the region 2 blu-ray copy of a certain release and it does not include one (or more) audio options, like the UK blu-ray of 'Duel (1971)' not having the mono track, only the 5.1 remix. It can be quite annoying actually. But this time it seems it's the other way around, where the US release doesn't have a certain audio track. At least it looks that way when i check all the audio options via caps-a-holic for the US blu-ray:

Could anybody please inform me if this was already aware amongst the people here. I haven't been around here for that long you see : )
I think it sounds really good as well, especially when comparing to the (in my opinion shitty) 5.1 track. And A/B comparing it with a mono laserdisc rip they actually sound really similar.

And btw... wasn't 'Evil Dead II' originally released in mono?? ( because when inspecting the track in waveform you can sometimes see some sounds coming in from the right channel and vice versa..

And for anyone who only owns the region a blu-ray of this, just let me know if you're interested.

wasn't aware of the UK release including it but see that it's confirmed here

just need to confirm that it isn't a fold down of the 5.1 mix. I know this happens on Shout releases but not sure about Studio Canal releases
