Warner Home Video has revealed that the upcoming Blu-ray release of 'Risky Business' will now include a Dolby TrueHD track instead of the previously planned Dolby Digital track. Last week, Warner admitted that some press material was being sent out with incorrect details and it appears this Blu-ray release was one of those titles affected. No other specs were affected by this change.
Way to go Warner, if you're reading forums like these that is great there will be a change in the sound formats available. I think every single release should have a lossless track, whether it be an older classic (even in mono) or a new film. I have been selective of what I have purchased because of which tracks are available to me, if lossless is not there many times I did not buy.
One last thing, if you are reading these posts Warner, please reissue titles like Superman Returns, Phantom of the Opera, Happy Feet, Battle of the Bulge, and the other titles released early on that only had lossy tracks, with lossless audio versions. I have so far held back on Superman The Movie, Superman Returns, Superman the Donner Cut, Phantom of the Opera, Happy Feet, The Ant Bully, and several more. These are important titles that have wonderful soundtracks and we would love to hear/own them without compression. That is when I will buy them.
Yeah, I've just got to say that if this movie - originally recorded in MONO - comes equipped with a TrueHD track and Speed Racer gets shafted with DD 5.1 only, it'll be the one of the biggest travesties of home entertainment I've ever seen.
Well done Warner for admitting to a press release mistake, but unfortunately there seems to be so much confusion around Warners titles having lossless audio. This isn't good for blu ray, they need to make a lossless audio standard and stick to it. At least this will now have a lossless audio. Step it up Warner otherwise you wont be known for quality.
Everybody pays for quality over quantity. Thats what blu ray is all about, pure quality.
