Ok, this isn't music or a film but please could we add the following to the 'To Rate' list?

 

 

Supersonics - Just Jets All Audio

http://www.amazon.co...uct/B00066EL4Y/

 

Round Sounds Vol 1, Featuring the Unique Sounds of Radial Engine Aircraft

http://www.amazon.co...uct/B000C7P9C0/

 

 

I was just playing the first one at -3 with the windows slightly ajar (you can hear the birds singing in the background on the CD before getting deafened by a passing jet lol) then went outside to get something from the car, and my neighbour was outside looking at the sky, saying "Did you hear that?"  LOL

Nice...the website is:

 

www.aircraftrecords.com

 

Lots of selection there, the air racers would be pretty cool.  Hope none of the stuff is clipped.

I need to re-listen to it to see if I can notice any, but I'm hopeful too :)

 

 

The audio legend guy who passed away recently (Tom Nousaine??) mentioned the second of the two in an article I read by him so I thought I'd check them out :)

which scenes in "9" is most worth mentioning?

I'm thinking about watching a few scenes just to get the basslust satisfied, but I just don't feel like watching the whole movie... Even though it's a pretty good one :-)

Goes for a fair while and starts about three quarters of the way through the movie 54mins-59mins and 1hr 4mins-1hr 8mins. A couple of epic scenes in this awesome movie.

Sherlock Holmes was a decent flick with great audio and very good bass content. Enjoyed it.

Rio (5.1 DTS-HD MA)

 

Level        - 1 Star (102.4dB composite)
Extension - 4 Stars (13Hz)
Dynamics - 5 Stars (28.12dB)

Execution - 3 Stars (by poll)

 

Overall     - 3.25 Stars

Recommendation - Rent (by poll)

 

Notes:  One effect at 13Hz gives it the rating.  Most other content is 30Hz and above.  Surprising lack of bass levels and effects given Randy Thom's work on this mix.

Rio 2 (7.1 DTS-HD MA)

 

Level        - 1 Star (98.98dB composite)
Extension - 3 Stars (19Hz)
Dynamics - 5 Stars (30.16dB)

Execution - 1 Star (by poll)

 

Overall     - 2.5 Stars

Recommendation - Rent (by poll)

 

Notes:  Incredibly low levels, which is odd for a Randy Thom mix.  I expected a lot more - not sure why, after the first one - but there's basically nothing here.

Just saw Rio2 today at the theatre. Didn't seem like there was much there. Hercules trailer showed some promise though.

10,000 B.C. (5.1 TrueHD)

 

Level        - 3 Stars (109.8dB composite)
Extension - 5 Stars (1Hz)
Dynamics - 5 Stars (29.77dB)

Execution - 4 Stars (by poll)

 

Overall     - 4.25 Stars

Recommendation - Rent (by poll)

 

Notes:  The mammoth hunt (11.35 - 15.45 mark, see graph below) has massive content from 1-35Hz.  The rest of the movie is pretty ho-hum for bass, and I thought the flick was mediocre overall.

5 Days of War (5.1 TrueHD)

 

Level        - 4 Stars (110.97dB composite)
Extension - 5 Stars (1Hz)
Dynamics - 4 Stars (25.88dB)

Execution - 5 Stars (by poll)

 

Overall     - 4.5 Stars

Recommendation - Rent (by poll)

 

Notes:  Absolutely truckloads of content below 20Hz, with some of it shockingly high-amplitude.  Unfortunately, most of the hottest content is below 2Hz, and likely filtered out by our signal chains.  Terrible movie.

Notes:  Besides one scene with a few 16Hz hits, this is a 30Hz film.

I really noticed the low levels. Posted about It in the AVS bass thread. I had it at -10 and it was still lower than most movies at -20.

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Slayer, weird title, weird movie, entertaining though with good LFE but nothing spectacular.

Noah (7.1 DTS-HD MA)

 

Level        - 4 Stars (110.68dB composite)
Extension - 3 Stars (16Hz)
Dynamics - 5 Stars (28.58dB)

Execution - 4 Stars (by poll)

 

Overall     - 4 Stars

Recommendation - Rent (by poll)

 

Notes:  Another blockbuster with a rolled off low end.  While it's not severely rolled off, the content is centered around 35Hz.  There is stuff below that, but it's significantly lower level.  And, ya know, a biblical flood movie really should have the super deep bass content.  Good visuals, decent audio, so-so movie.

At least the shelf filter left the ULF only 15-20dB down, not -40dB like other blockbusters.....
