  2. 2. Recommendation?

Recommended Posts

Children of Men (5.1 DTS-HD MA)


Level        - 3 Stars (109.04dB composite)

Extension - 4 Stars (14.5Hz)

Dynamics - 5 Stars (36.47dB)

Execution - 4 Stars


Overall     - 4 Stars


Recommendation - Buy


Notes:  Huge dynamics really make the bass content in this sound a lot bigger than it is.  It's not super deep, being rolled off steadily from the mid-30s.  I really like this movie.

Whoah!  36dB dynamics!


This was a film I liked, but I saw it on the old-old HT, with only a single 12" sealed sub.....may have to give it another spin...

Some graphs of the big scenes:


Cafe Bombing:



Zen Music:



Car Ambush:



Tank Firing:



Building Bombardment:



While I was looking at the file in Audacity I noticed the track has some noticeable clipping during the ending sequence, even in the surrounds.  The center channel is the worst though:

Thanks for the scenecaps minnjd!


Yup, the center channel almost always gets clipped first, with so much content that gets put into it.  I wish more mixers would monitor that stuff more closely.  It can be done without clipping, Check out Fury, and XMen:DOFP.
