    For $20 they sure don't tell you what's on it. Can you post everything that's on the disk?

    Default What's on it

    It has a Dolby channel check for tuning your speakers for DD, DS, DDEX. The water fall trailer is made for DDEX and wow it sounds awesome. There is 8 Dolby Digital theatrical trailers. 3 gaming trailers, some other Dobly previews the audio check up has all there formats with a channel check and bass management setup. But in all it's the Dolby trailers that will leave you saying wow, well worth $20.

    Yes, I'm the DOLBY fan and I own the older version of DVD. I bought the DOLBY DIGITAL plaque, 2 hats (DOLBY DIGITAL & DOLBY DIGITAL SURROUND EX in D.Blue) and the DOLBY DIGITAL DEMO DVD DISC.

    Still, can't see it being worth $20, $10 maybe, besides, I've already got dts demo disks 2-6, those will outdue any dd demo disk. Full bit-rate dts tracks cannot be beat.

    If you really want to demo your HT, go to ebay and try and find some of the dts demo disks.

    As far as bit-rate is concerned I'm sure DOLBY is using 0% or least amount of compression in there Demo Disc to put the best sound and video for the presentation. Bit-rates and compression has more to do with DVD Movies where DVD space is an issue. Since the Demo Discs are not too long bit-rate is not a major issue.

    Check out the bitrates of D-VHS movies. D-VHS uses Dolby Digital only with 0 compression. Also the HD video is 0 % compressed. DOLBY beats all DTS DVDs there no question about that. To say DTS is better than DOLBY what most people say is non-sense.

    My point is simple both DOLBY and DTS are great to listen if they get fair treat but as far as bit-rate and compression is concerned in case of Demo Disc it should not be an issue.

    Default Your missing something

    Your missing something Ron, this is a Dobly everything disc. Everything from Dobly Pro Logic to Dobly Digital EX, so if your setup will allow you to demo each format in thier true form, it can be pretty amazing. On the Dobly Digital, DTS debate I have to go with the leader, Dobly Digital all the way, then THX, and last but not least DTS.

    I see your point, but I am stuck in 5.1 land so anything other than that is useless to me.

    Also, THX is not a sound codec, but rather a set of specs that must be met. If your gear meets Lucas's specs, you can pay him and he'll give you a sticker to place on your gear. That's it.
