    Hey Lush about that thread on LD vs DVD Audio quality you had almost 3 years ago, I converted lossy dvd tracks to Flac using Foobar 2000 & they sound equal to laserdisc tracks. i posted links to the flac files in this thread at avsforum.

    my name is Dingane Walker on that thread

    Foobar2000 stribs the dialnorm/drc metadata

    Dialnorm was truly a bad idea. The compression algorithim used on dvd is actually higher than the one used for the theater. They added dialnorm for consumer use

    Hi LuSh -- Have found your posts on the Melior/Museatex Bitstream DAC. I've had one since 2003 or so, had the mods done in 2006. Was hoping to compare notes a little with you. And wondering if you have any photos of your board. I have some before and after but will be taking better ones of after, today. Thanks! I have to use the Visitor Message approach because I just joined the forum after finding your post. --Ecaroh (Steve)

    Hey LuSh, check out this link:

    Dolby Digital is a lot better than we think it is. Dolby knows the secrets, but won't tell us how to get maximum fidelity from our DVD's

    Ever wonder how a DD 320kbps 5.1 track can sound like a DTS HD Master audio track in a movie theater?

    I read online that Dolby Digital is Heavily Encrypted. I guess DD sounding so low in volume is Dolby's Anti-Piracy measure to combat Piracy. When a DD file gets encoded, all the levels of the master soundtrack go unchanged. Dolby knows what they are doing. I think it's a decoder issue not so much about the bitrate. Dolby has the hardware & the software to fully resolve DD tracks, but they won't release it to consumers.

    I'm at my computer right now & I'm switching between DD 5.1, DD 2.0 & DTS tracks on DVD & listening to their LD PCM counterparts, & a lot of the mixes are the same.
