Default The Raw statistics of Blu-ray audio vs. HD DVD audio

Blu-ray:
LPCM 42.73 %
DTS-HD:MA 13.39 %
TrueHD 8.08 %
Total lossless: 64.2%
http://www.blu-raystats.com/

HD DVD:
LPCM 0.80 %
DTS-HD:MA 0.27 %
TrueHD 20.27 %
Total lossless: 21.34%http://www.hddvdstats.com/

Ouch!

So you can see, like just about every other measurable thing, Blu-ray WHOMPS HD DVD on lossless audio.

Yes that's nice but just tell me if you can hear any difference between DD+ True HD, PCM and DTS HD when an HDM player is plugged 90% of the time directly to an HDTV. Worst, HD receivers that can handle HD soundtrack have a 1% penetration market actually...

Having a DD+ track beat out all those lossless tracks for best audio for a HDM title --- priceless.

Do you also have the stats for blu-ray exclusive vs. hd dvd exclusive releases?

Paramount (33 titles on blu) and Warner have brought down blu-ray lossless audio stats by a significant percentage.

Everyone forgets, we're now in the iPod generation. Low fidelity audio has become acceptable and common place.

1% penetration, ok sure I will believe you...but give us facts, links, not your own speculative findings

And for your information, any Dolby Digital 5.1 capable receiver can accept uncompressed PCMs...you dont need a fancy shmancy Denon or Onkyo Receiver to accept uncompressed PCMs via any Bluray player.

So yeah if you just have an HDTV and no receiver, no speakers, sure you might not tell the difference, other than the overall stereo track volume on the TV speakers being louder with uncompresses PCM.

Now my next question to you is (with using a typical 5.1 surround sound set up) can you HONESTLY tell me that you cannot tell the difference of lossless uncompressed PCM versus the over compressed Dolby Digital? by the way, this is PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE to deny! You would actually have to be a DEAF MUTE to say that you cannot tell the difference in clarity and overall output.

Thanks for continuing to dumb up the consumer electronics consumers by making statements like...people watch/listen to their highdef movies on their 10-watt TV speakers

Thats news to me. I've been listening to lossless before Blu-Ray even came out. Guess you didn't read what I've got in my sig.
