I haven’t finished downloading this yet but I have some questions about the audio. Sorry if they’ve already been clearly answered, I’m too tired to read through the thread at the moment.
What’s the difference between the optical audio track packed in the mkv file and the “cleaned” one?
And are there any digital tracks that actually matches the theatrical stereo audio? I see the 1993 LD track is there but weren’t all the 1993 LD mixes altered? The 1983 Japan and US sources, are they from LDs too?
The image quality is great by the way, managed to preview a bit of it. 😃
TN1 didn’t include a LD capture of the 1983 mix in the released MKVs because the optical audio from the print itself was very high quality with nothing missing (unlike SW77’s optical audio, which wasn’t complete from a single source). I guess they thought including an LD cap of the same mix was redundant.
Personally, I think the LD audio sounds better, and Schorman provided PCM copies synced to 4K83 over at the 4K## forums, so I remuxed the MKV with one of those.
Also for clarity, the hairy_hen 5.1 with added music was included by mistake (HH explained that it was his personal version and meant to provide the “accurate” one for inclusion with the MKVs). Personally I really like the added music in the Obi-Wan scene, but for those who want the new hairy_hen 5.1 with no added music, he’s made that available for remuxing as well.
