I've been in Ottawa since '75 and don't recall The Maze finding it's way here either, and I was a voracious TV Guide scanner in my monster kid youth...

Certainly not after 1980 or so, when it would have been on my radar. I only caught up with it in the last 15 years through a fellow CHFB member's generosity. I'll be getting to see Bob's fine work tomorrow night at my friend's place. Should be fun as he's never seen the movie and I haven't watched it in at least 5 years, maybe longer.
That is all thanks to our brilliant audio engineer in Germany, Mr. Eckhard Büttner.ryanbrennan wrote: I don't have a 3-D set-up so can't watch THE MAZE in depth. The 2-D picture looks great, of course. However, the stereophonic sound on this disc is simply amazing. This is a fantastic recreation of the 3 channels with a rich, broad, deep sound stage. The music seems to stand apart from the effects and is wonderful while there is plenty of directional sound trickery that adds greatly to the presentation. Kudos, gentleman!
Thank you, Mr. Furmanek! I seriously doubted it was the disc/restoration, and I don't pretend to be an expert of any kind when dealing with home theatre set-up.Bob Furmanek wrote: Chuck, the three-channel audio replication is VERY dynamic just as the original magnetic stereo would have sounded in the theater.
If you are absolutely certain that you have your sound equipment properly calibrated to left/center/right configuration (run test tones to be sure) and still have a problem with the levels, I would suggest opting for the mono audio track instead.
Many people do not have their sound properly calibrated. Our restoration of IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE (from the original three-channel magnetic) also has a very high dynamic range and some people reported problems with that track. It turns out, many were not getting the correct LCR channel balance.
In other words; it's not the restoration or the disc!
