Hands On With DTS HD Master Audio (Page 4)

Final Thoughts

I tried a few more discs as the night progressed; titles such as 'Ronin', 'The Simpsons Movie', 'X-Men 3: The Last Stand' and 'Speed'. I was not disappointed by the new found sonic benefits of any of them. And they all uniformly displayed the same kind of attributes I found as with 'Independence Day', and 'Die Hard 4'; that is, more detail and depth to the overall sound, slightly more detail in the vocal clarity, and much crisper bass performance.

To say I am impressed is an understatement. What's more, it's made Twentieth Century Fox's decision to rail against almost every other movie distributor, and use DTS HD MA on every title; a wise one, and one that will pay dividends to their overall quality standard moving forward.

The days of lossy audio in home theatre are over; now the onus is on home theatre fans to embrace these new technologies, and if they truly love the art form, there is absolutely no reason why they shouldn't.

I look forward to reviewing movies for TweakTown for a long time coming, and as hardware keeps progressing, I hope I can continue to stay on the forefront and help guide your home entertainment decision making. But for now, an investment in a PlayStation 3 is one of the smartest moves you could make. Join us in a bluer world!
