Bad Audio on Quantum Leap Season 2 (R2)

I recently bought the Region 2 Season 2 set in a heartbeat after I read that the original soundtracks are intact. Sadly the sound is irregular and warbly on some episodes. It's noticeable during music pieces like the opening theme. It seems that only the music is affected - both songs and score. Dialogue and everything else is fine, but the music does have glitches and it is irregular and warbly on some episodes.

I haven't watched all of the episodes on the Season 2 box set yet, but so far the glitches show up on "Disco Inferno", "Blind Faith" and "Good Morning Preoria". Anyone else have the same problems with their R2 Season 2 box sets?

I have not got the Region 2 Season 2 set yet so cannot comment, but a thread on another forum seems to indicate problems with music. If you read here from post #66 it seems it could be universal.

Thanks for the link GCampbell. These are the problems I was talking about. There are very noticeable jumps in the music in some episodes, so it seems that Season 2 was indeed pitch corrected, therefore the littlle pops in the sound.

Annoying, but at least the songs haven't been replaced.

It wasn't pitch corrected, the region 1 set also has pitch problems, but oddly on different episodes to the R2 ones.

It's possible the sets were put together by idiots. I suppose we should be grateful for the correct music though.

Way ahead of you John. Actually, looking at the QL season 2 thread, my comment is about 8 posts up from your contribution to the thread! Not wanting to sift through a dozen pages I can understand, but not being able to look back 8 posts?? I even mentioned some of the same episodes you do.

You're right though, we should be grateful for the music being there as the show just isn't the same without it. At least the picture quality is superb (for a show of this vintage) by way of compensation for the audio glitches, although I've read some reviews that say it's awful! I wonder if folk have gotten so used to pristine transfers of the latest movies that they can't fully appreciate the look of an older TV show like this one...

Actually I did see your post but didn't read it, as I assumed (after reading the subject) that it only dealt with the music not being changed. Sorry, my mistake.
