Thumbs down let's let the Consumer decide (?!?)

who really wants the average consumer to decide this war? the average consumer is uninformed, and doesn't care about the things that we do. if it was completely up to them, we probably would just get the cheapest HD solution possible, without any lossless surround.


anyway, this was just on my mind, so i thought i'd post it.

How many of you can actually tell a MEANINGFUL difference in the lossless sound?

I ask this as a person who has spent tens of thousands of dollars on his audio system.

In fairness it was the average MID-WESTERNER who voted for Bush. Cali and NY still know how to represent.

But I think BD supporters have the same thought process as a Bush supporter.

"Kill all competition! We must have HUGE restrictions on our product so the bad guys don't win!!! Victory in Iraq, mission accomplished!!!!!!"

Honestly, one in the same.

It's NOT a subtle difference. Once you've heard lossless, you don't want to go back. More open, more dynamic, clearer, you name it. DD/DTS sounds muddy in comparison.

Ask the same question to the guy who claims he can hear differences between TrueHD and uncompressed PCM. I'm actually skeptical on this one, I suspect an issue with proper TrueHD decoding.

HD DVD is cheap for the trailer trash people who voted in bush. blu-ray is for the people with a education and has a good job. see I can make stupid arguments also.
