Default BD dominates again with audio!

From High Def Digest's review of The Host:

The two other tracks on this Blu-ray are shared with the HD DVD -- a DTS-HD 5.1 surround track (1.5 Mbps) and a standard Dolby Digital 5.1 surround mix (448 kbps).

In a direct comparison of all three tracks, the PCM mix sounds significantly stronger than the other two, showcasing crisper voices, deeper ambiance, and boomier bass. To be fair, on its own merits, the DTS track holds it own, but the standard Dolby Digital track is a let down, with tinny voices and peaking issues.

HD-dvd supports will come in say not a big deal. But the fact is the hd-dvd already has limitations . What if on LOTR they dont have lossless cause of bit rate problems or disk space
