In theory, the quality of TrueHD and DTS-HD MA should be the same, so it doesn't really matter.

If by quality you mean they are both lossless then yes they will be, but it doesn't mean they'll sound the same. Different encoders will be used for each format. Whether the difference is noticable is another matter but I'm sure there will be those who say they can hear a difference.

Makes me glad this whole war is over. Universal/Paramount seem to put more effort into audio quality than they did on HD-DVD. Is this due to the space limitations on HD-DVD I wonder.

I always thought each track was handled by an engineer for each format, so the differences are dependant on the engineers choice.

I very much doubt that for instance, Gary Rydstrom, would have let another sound engineer, engineer the audio for one of his films due to it being encoded in a different format.

I was initially surprised by the announcement, but then I remembered that some of the very first DTS DVDs were from Universal, as was the first DTS movie (although that was down to Senor Spielbergo more than anything).

It's a good move IMO, as the core + extension implementation saves space on having separate lossy/lossless tracks, which will be vital if Universal continue to cram on as many alternate language tracks as ******* possible for non-US discs...

Whatever happened to Universal using DTS on DVD's?

The supermarket dvd buying brigade aren't interested in DTS as they view all their DVD's through the Scart cable on their CRT TV in Stereo.

Good news but how long do you think it'll take for them to start releasing Battlestar Galactica?

Anything surfaced regarding a release date for the Bourne movies yet? I don't really want to have one under my TV, but I might have to pick up the now Ł19.99 360 HD-DVD add-on if they aren't announced soon.
