The uncompressed formats do make a dramatic difference if you have a subwoofer capable of going into the below 20Hz range. I also find that the dynamics of all the channels is better. Try Prince Caspian as it has the full 7.1 uncompressed channel mix and is amazing!

You will get the same results from the DTS MA encoded BluRays movies.

Can someone please do me a favor and tell me if there is a big difference in terms of bass extension when watching the Matrix films in Dolby True HD as opposed to their standard definition counterparts with lossy DD soundtracks ?

I can imagine the quality of the sound improves tremendously, but I was wondering if, as some have said, the bass depth improves dramatically, if the differences are huge. I've ordered the Matrix blu-ray, and I've got the remastered first Matrix (SD). Any input ?

Regards,
My personal opinion is that Yes, there is a difference. But you need a good speaker setup to hear it. If your sub in particular doesn't go below 20Hz it really wont be a dramatic as it could be.

TruHD audio movies have a strange function in that it automatically turns on the night mode (DRC) in most receivers and needs to be manually turned off once the movie starts playing. You will notice a huge difference once you do that.
