Somehow yet again I was able to convince her that Star Trek would be the better watch. She really enjoys watching movies in 3D. I would suspect Pitch Perfect will be watched this week at some point.
Maybe she just really enjoys spending time with you

Thanks JQueen. I'd like to think she does and as she always tells me she likes being the accommodating wife. She's a good woman.

Ok, so the 3D version of Star Trek Into Darkness won't play the lossless audio. This is a deal breaker for me and in goes the regular Blu-ray version. The audio is more important to me than watching this in 3D. Just sayin…

What?! You can't have both? Did they run out of space on the disc? Is this common?

I'm with you on this one - I would choose lossless audio over 3D too.

I've read that with some versions of 3D the lossless audio isn't available but until now haven't experienced this. I would imagine it is a space issue but for me I would much rather enjoy the Dolby TrueHD audio. I spent the extra money but in a way feel cheated.

I just finished watching Star Trek Into the Darkness and I loved it in theaters but for some reason the audio was lacking for me. It was Dolby True HD but for some reason it seemed a bit lackluster. Is it just me or did anyone else who has seen this movie notice the soundtrack seeming a bit flat? I was expecting more. I may need to watch it again just to make sure

I found the audio to be impressive once I removed the 3D Dolby Digital version. The Dolby TrueHD version was very immersive with some really good LFE.

I think I've been messing around with speaker placement and setup way to much the last few days. I recalibrated my system just before watching the film tonight and I'm thinking that may have had an effect. I will watch it again this weekend once I get the setup tuned again for the treatments I put up. I think I might be going crazy! Lol

I completely understand your frustration. It's a constant fight to get things just right and even when you do you're always wanting to improve the sound. I'm very happy with the sound of my system but on occasion I still get the tweak and tinker bug.

It's a symptom inherent to the audio bug sickness. I have it too. And yes, sometimes I think I might be crazy. My wife has no doubt in her mind about it.
