Very glad you brought this over here Dr Pain. Will this be left open for discussion too or movies hand picked by you? Either way is good for me as I know you can pick the bass heavy movies.

I'm in the need of some new good bass movies.

Hey Pain,

What is your subwoofer system anyway? I don't think I've ever heard what it is. I'm getting visions of SVS Ultra for some reason...:dunno:

When reading the complete list, all the movies are specified as a certain version.
example:

2 Fast 2 Furious HD-DVD DD+
3:10 To Yuma DTS Blu-ray 16 Bit LPCM
5ive Girls
28 Weeks Later DTS Blu-ray DTS-HD:MA
30 Days Of Night Blu-ray TrueHD
300 HD-DVD DD+ TrueHD Blu-ray 16 Bit LPCM TrueHD
1408 CE Blu-ray TrueHD
10,000 BC LE Blu-ray TrueHD


Does this mean you have to purchase, rent, or otherwise obtain this exact version? Reason being I havent bought a Bluray player yet.

I wont buy a bluray player till they fix the problems with the HDMI technology either.

Many - if not most - of the listings here show multiple versions that have deep bass.

For example, from your excerpt, the film 300 is listed as having deep bass in the HD-DVD version's Dolby Digital + and TrueHD soundtracks and the Blu-ray version's LPCM and Dolby TrueHD soundtracks.

Less obviously, the films that state an audio encoding (such as DTS or DD) before listing a disk type - examples from your post include 3:10 to Yuma and 28 Weeks Later say that the DTS soundtrack on the standard definition DVDs of those films (some films were released as alternative DVDs with DTS rather than - or in addition to - Dolby soundtracks), and then go on to identify which tracks on the high-definition disks have deep bass as well.

PS For a fun example of deep bass use, check out the scene in Men in Black where Will Smith first shows up at the "lobby" of MiB - the fan room for the tunnel system. The sound depicting those huge fans really shakes the room! In fact, without that sound effect, the intended deadpan humor in the lobby guard's blase attitude is completely absent.

I have a dvd of an older movie that has the lowest bass I've heard yet because it's hitting the low notes on a pipe organ. This movie definitely deserves a mention here. It's called "Return to OZ". I don't have the time into the movie, but it's probably about 20 minutes into the movie, as 2 girls are running from a house in fear to the river and they fall into the river. I can hear pipe organ in the neighborhood of 20hz here.
