[Request] The Taking of Pelham 123 (1974), Original Mono
#1
According to the B-R.com forum, Kino's The Taking of Pelham 123 UHD sports a 5.1 remix and a 2.0 mono downmix of that 5.1: https://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php...st20747347

The 2011 MGM BD has a 2.0 (original?) mono, while the 2016 Kino BD has a 2.0 that sounds different: https://forum.blu-ray.com/showpost.php?p...tcount=119

Has anyone compared the various BD/DVD/LD/VHS releases to see which original mono sounds the best? I vaguely remember seeing a post around here before but can't find it through site search now.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks! Do you know if this is already synced somewhere, or if the unsynced track is available?

there's very clearly been some form of noise reduction used though so finding something better is very possible.

there's an HDTV rip floating around that sounds very similar to the DVD, pretty much strictly worse, but it does have much better fidelity and less NR during the opening and closing music. been meaning to make a hybrid but wanted to wait to hear what the LD sounded like.

Is it certain that the UHD mono is a downmix?
I wanted to buy that disc... Undecided

not only a downmix but devoid of bass compared to the old DVD
