every rip i have done has been with a 5.1 audio track and i am quite happy using dual channel stereo. i am currently ripping Dead Alive (which is by far the best movie i have ever seen) and this is the 1st instance i have run into feeble audio. what should i do?

AC3 T01 2_0ch 192Kbps

im not clear on whether i should apply dual channel to ALL encodes or change it up.
**note: i am ALWAYS encoding in 128Kbps

any help would be greatly appreciated. thx.

hey,
me and my friends once had a Faces of Death marathon which we followed up with Dead Alive to lighten things up Glad to hear this movie's out on dvd now- I still remember the lawnmower scene I think you could get by with joint stereo or mono for that one - Sorry I don't have any good advice on that- just wanted to chime in because u and me are probably the only people in this forum that has ever seen this

right on! RENDALUNIT,

its welcoming to hear someone appreciates that culty type of movie genre. all my friends think im a complete wierdo. i remember seeing faces of death 1, 2, and 3 when i way a boy and it was pretty warped stuff. its all good tho. i think its avaliable on DVD, but no where, id think its rentable.

thanks for trying tho. i think ill just keep it on dual channel unless i hear something different.
thx.

"stay back boy, this calls for divine intervention... i... kick ass for the lord!"

I always encode with dual channel, bitrate 160 kbps. The final movie size is usually 30mb bigger than a standard encode but usually will still fit onto 1 cdr. The audio quality is always really good and not tinny sounding like some of the rips I've done at 128 kbps. I don't know about anybody else but when i encode in joint stereo the central speaker on my surround sound system doesn't function, but does with dual channel. I hope this is of some help.
