Excellent program, lousy Audio
on 10 March 2012
Unfortunately, while the subject matter is excellent, the quality of the audio on the DVD leaves a great deal to be desired. Episode one is so bad (really bad clipping on sibilance, probably because they boosted the audio too much) that I couldn't listen to it. As unfortunately I have every good high frequency hearing even at my relatively advanced age I just couldn't listen to it for any length of time. In comparison, episode two to four are not perfect but they are bearable. On line friends who have bought copies of this also say the same about the audio quality. If I hadn't known how to rip and 'repair' the audio to make it listenable and remux it back in with the video stream I would have had to return it as unsuitable.
Note, if your high frequency hearing is below average the poor audio quality might not bother you as I have friends who can't hear the clipping even on Episode 1 or if they can it is at such a low level that it is no problem for them.
So I give it 5 stars for the content and 0 stars for the Audio.
To add ato nd alleviate my criticism of the audio somewhat, at least from the sellers point of view, after reporting the continuing audio problem back to Canny Store, even though the audio quality is something beyond their control, they offered me another OU DVD series, 'The Gene Code' gratis in compensatioon. You can't get much better service than that.
