More HD DVD releases from Studio Canal...

Previously, we've posted that Studio Canal has plans for Babel HD DVD to be released on June 4, but according to latest information, it has been delayed to June 25. What's probably significant about this HD DVD release for Babel is that it is the first time a lossless audio track is included for this title. So if you're looking for lossless audio track with this title and having no luck with Paramount in terms of lossless audio, then this may be the release to get but only French subtitles are provided.

I'm sorry, but there are many, many more HD-DVD titles with DTS-MA. For instance, according to Xploited Cinema, these 15 titles have DTS-MA 5.1:
Basic Instinct, 3 Days of the Condor, Brotherhood of the Wolf, Enemy at the Gates, King Kong '76, La Haine, Mulholland Drive, Rambo 1,2,3, Terminator 2, Elephant Man, Fog, The Pianist and Total Recall.

In fact, the first high-def release with DTS-HD Master Audio is the limited edition HD DVD of 2046, which was presented to the film's director at an event last year.

I'm glad you brought up the poor phrasing problem with the post. I was typing the post just as I was "half-awake".

It should be clearer now...
