Did you know Netflix cripples the audio on BD rentals??

http://www.avsforum.com/t/1430959/ne...-1-instead/360

I'm reading this discussion thread on AVSforums.com. It's a strange practice by the rentals like Netflix, Blockbuster, RedBox, etc.

Original BlueRay comes with the lossless format of DTS-HD Master Audio, but when they produce this BD for rental, they will remove the high quality audio and replace it with a lower quality 5.1 or similar instead.

Strange practice. You are renting a BlueRay for the high quality of the video AND the audio. Those that have a nice audio system can definitely hear a difference. Besides, your expensive audio system sits there not utilizing the most sophisticated parts of it. What a waste.

Seems like a questionable and sad practice to me.

Comments?
