And as Paul said, the sound is much improved.
But yeah, it's not something I'd recommend picking up unless it's really cheap.
You may well be right mate but it was the first ever BD I bought and watched after buying my PS3 years ago and I was so diappointed after expecting this leap in quality. I'll put it on again at some point as I'm sure there is a slight upgrade that I just hadn't noticed at the time.
As for AQ I never notice any difference in sound on any releases I have as I'm still stuck with plain old stereo, no surround sound for me. I can just never tell the difference at all, some releases can be quieter than others but I just adjust the volume accordingly. I'm not a very techy person so don't realise if I'm missing out when it comes to sound quality, I tend to scroll past any AQ sections on reviews.
