A while back we bought the rear lounge room a new big screen and surround sound system, I dutifully set it all up, that included, the following.
1 x AMP and system
Speakers for every god dam corner,two massive kick arse sub-woofers and your normal front, centre and so forth speakers. Not a bad package and a pretty good price. Then of course you have to hook up, the FOXTEL IQ system, the DVD / HDD recorder and make everything work. YEAH FUCKING RIGHT.
Solution, cough up 100 bucks, just piff that oh so fucking rare green slip at some other bastard and ..PRESTO..it all works.WICKED.
NOW!, here is the new bit. Like most people, we listen with Dolby on, you know what I mean, and thats 5.1 or 6.1, IF, you are prepared to play with the settings. BUT, here is a little trick I was shown recently and the results…WELL, IT SHITS THE FUCK ALL OVER THAT 5.1 type shit.
ON you settings for the DVD player, find the audio button when the disc is in and Punch that button. Odd are it will show 5.1 on the TV. Now push it again and cycle through and see if the letters DTS come up. IF they do, leave it on that setting. Assuming of course your surround sound system is DTS compatible, which most late stuff are.
If you DO not believe me, that the difference is out of this world, flick back from DTS to Pro Logic and see for yourself. DTS, will turn your audio listening world up side god dam fucking down. ITS HUGE!…… give it a try, well worth the effort, because what this will do to the home movie experience is fucking unbelievable…..
UNLES of course you pay mega bucks for some THX theatre system..like the movies..but hey..NOT ME
