The audio on the Library of Congress' copyright deposit print of the 1977 Star Wars film

I read an article about someone seeing a copyright deposit print of the 1977 Star Wars film on the Save Star Wars website. This made me become curious, is the audio on that copyright deposit print in mono, or is the audio in stereo?

Hoping someone can answer my question.

Nobody here knows. Shoot an e-mail to LoC and ask them. After they reply to you, come back and post your findings in this thread.

Finally, make sure to apologize for the shitstorm you caused.

A picture is worth a thousand words. Post 102 is worth more.

I’m late to the party, but I think this is the best song. Enjoy!

 Ok, they tell me the print has a stereo optical track, non-Dolby. But I don't believe there's any noticeable difference between Dolby stereo and non-Dolby stereo (if there is, please correct me if I'm wrong).

Wow. Just wow.

You come back here like nothing happened? You could at least publicly apologize for that little archive.org stunt you pulled first.

Interesting. I'm not sure what they mean either.

Thanks for following-up with this information.
