So far I've mostly seen Disney transfers, but they're the best transfers I've seen of any next-gen HD disc, and I have nearly 100 HD-DVD's now and just went neutral. Pirates blew my mind.

I voted disney, but you know, now that I think about it, Fox is damn close if not better. Every movie I have from Fox looks incredible, plus they all have DTS-HD MA. While I don't have the ability to hear it yet, I'm positive they will sound incredible when I do. But, I can hear the PCM from Disney, who's movies also look incredible, and I also own more Disney/Buena Vista then Fox.

Fox is good but laid a couple eggs along the way that lowers their score but Disney pretty consistent.

DTS-HD MA is the same information you should get on PCM or TrueHD if the studio chose to use either of those instead. The real difference in Fox's soundtracks is whoever is mastering the audio or whatever equipment they use. The Encoding method doesn't change the master because they are all lossless.

That still doesn't let me hear the DTS HD MA. My reciever does not decode it so I'm only getting the core DTS while I can hear the PCM on the Disney tracks. Thats all I was saying. Wasn't comparing the 2.
