WOW what a difference. Even though my setup on decodes regular 5.1 over optical, somewhere along the pipe they added some extra "oomph" to the TrueHD track. My setup sounds like a fricken movie theater. TBH I'm enjoying the sound quality improvements more than the video improvements. The HD sound really puts you in the movie.
You talking about compared to a DVD? Because yeah, DVDs bitrates aren't as high as even the core of a TrueHD track.
