I believe the new DVDs include other audio differences besides just sample
rate/depth. Multi-channel (surround) for one.. combining that to stereo
would have some sonic difference as well even if A/Bing on stereo only.
Setting the Bluray players up to play blueray disks 1 or 2 db louder would
be enough to make them sound better... Just remixing for surround is a
remix and the mix will probably be "just different". That difference is
"Fresh" and new to the listener. People who buy a new system also have a
new set of speakers generally, to handle the extra channels if nothing
else. Too many new/different things for a good test.
Testing using a blueray player would not be the way to go, rather testing
each of the different tech changes from one to the other with known
program material at known levels.
