Now if only Boston would say what the return address is for Amazon on the packages he gets. Is it Lexington KY or something else?Keep Physical Media Alive, Just say NO to digital "ownership"

Funny you mention that. It's Lexington KY but sometimes I think I've seen NH in there.
I haven't checked recently but I know I've seen Lex KY more times than I can count and I purchase a lot from Amazon

Finally getting around to diving into Knight Rider.
Well, this is the Mill Creek that I know.... low budget. For starters, not only is it lossy audio, but it is very-lossy audio. Think AC3 at 448kpbs. An average DVD pipes audio at 640 kbps. I never did note what the audio bitrate was on the dvd release of this series from years ago but that one was not a Mill Creek release. For point of reference though most people that have mp3 audio going on, those are very rarely at 320 kbps or higher. Most common is probably 192 or so. For picture quality, there certainly could have been a little more care (and probably bit rate) but this is still the best this series has ever looked so if you're a fan of the series, there are certainly enough positives to merit purchase still. And even with the lowlights here, it is better than streaming.
I find it ironic that they chose to use DTS-HD MA on Miami Vice, which has always had pretty bad audio to begin with.Keep Physical Media Alive, Just say NO to digital "ownership"

It seems that what Mill Creek has done here is use the DVD encode for the audio without re-authoring it.

Straight from Dolby:
"In addition to Dolby Digital Plus audio, Blu-ray Disc can
also output for the first time a Dolby Digital bitstream at its maximum
of 640 kbps, which all existing Dolby Digital consumer decoders can handle.
This means better performance on legacy playback systems compared to DVD,
which is not able to carry Dolby Digital bitstreams of more than 448 kbps."
