LaserDiscs needed for replacing BD audio
The Pink Panther.

Shout BD has 5.1 remix, lossless 2.0 remix, and lossless mono. The latter is screechy, over loud and has much of the noise removed. The DVD mono is far better and has the natural noise, but the LD mono is even better.

Not sure if it belongs on this list, but related to my little search in the other thread: The DTS laserdisc of Armageddon (1998) is exorbitantly expensive (I saw one offer for $1000, although probably no one pays that) and rather rare. Supposedly the DTS audio is very good, and this is the only laserdisc of Armageddon with DTS. Might be worth preserving, if one happens to get one's hands on it for a reasonable price.

Does this apply to all of the Pink Panther movies or just the first one?

So far I've been able to fully compare all but Revenge as I don't have that LD. Each film save for Return sounds better on LD. Return is a port of a European bd and is fine. The others are dated masters and the bd mono is ok but not as good as the LD mono.

Strikes Again is a mess of a disc. Bad transfer and bad off pitch sound. I gave up and watched the LD instead. Also of note is that all the dvds are boosted in contrast.

Some have said there a slight audio mix difference on Revenge in comparing the LD to all later issues.

Son of the PP looks and sounds fine but I had forgotten just how bad it is.
