This is scandalous. How dare you exclude the kitchen sink?!

It broke sync for everything else when I muxed it in…I think I just needed to cut the end off since it runs a bit longer and it seemed to be in sync at the start, but I didn’t bother investigating. If I had an Atmos setup I might be able to better tell if it was “worth it” or not, but from the few bits in the movie that actually utilize surround effects that I checked, at least on my regular 7.1 set-up:

  • It is better than the “2021/4K version” of the Hypersonic mix
  • It didn’t sound very different from the “classic” 5.1 DVD mix at all
  • I still preferred the 2009 Hypersonic mix

Pretty sure my AVR automatically enables PLIIx for 5.1 sources that aren’t explicitly DTS-ES flagged.

Yes, I know you’re being sarcastic.
