    I don't see this thread anywhere, so I'll start it off (move if necessary)

    What Blu-Rays do you use to demo your system?
    I use:
    Master and Commander - Intro (Great Surround effects, ship creaking, clanking etc)
    Master and Commander - The first battle with the Acheron (just WOW)
    Finding Nemo - Darla (Sub Demo / ARE YOU AWAKE?)
    Polar Express - When the Polar Express Arrives (Pretty Cool that it sounds like a train arrives in my living room)
    Cloverfield - Throughout (Sub Demo)
    Disney/Pixar - Display Demo

    Dirt it may surprise you but the regular DVD of Master and Commander apparntly has better sound than the lossless version. Seems when they were mixing the Bluray they enacted a lower frequency limiiter so no signals below 25Hz get sent. So the regular DVD actually gets real low in the bass impact.

    I would say my list is

    Baraka (picture)
    POTC 1 and 2 (picture)
    Cloverfield (bass)
    The Orphanage (for surround duty - real good)
    Up (the balloon house to the sky scene is really colorful)
    Casino Royal (opening chase is a overall sound sensation)
    XXX (the snowslide is a 2 minute great use of deep mid bass)

    Seriously? Hmmmm...I think I have both the DVD and Blu-Ray versions. Last time I played the Blu version
    I remember thinking to myself *self...did that cannon shot from the Acheron not feel as powerful in the chest
    as last time?* and I may have used the DVD version prior to that. I'll have to run that check.

    Thanks for the info Matt.

    Yeah there was a whole thread over at AVS on that very issue and somebody posted a chart showing how M&C has the
    Limiter enacted

    How to Train Your Dragon for bass, surrounds and picture quality (that makes it all :) )

    Se7en was just released and the reviewer in Home Theater Mag says he rarely gives perfect 5's but on this 20 page booklet version, he gave it a solid 5 for perfect picture and 7.1 lossless audio

    For music, kd lang's "Live in London", the picture is stunning even though it's 1080i.

    Picture, I suppose,Baraka, but I'm still learning what to look for.

    Bass: I don't know; the movies have the huger low kick and I'm more a music person... :shrug:

    1080i on blu-ray? That's a first for me.
