Bass Hunters Episode 19: The Abyss – Taste What You'll Hear on 4K Disc with our Kaleidescape Review!


(February 28, 2023) On the latest episode of Bass Hunters, brought to you by our partners at Kaleidescape, Sutherland AV Marketing, and Ascendo, we dive into the deep bass-rich waters of James Cameron's The Abyss. We've made few more tweaks to the overall presentation of the show, so come check it out and see what kind of audio you'll experience when The Abyss launches on disc in two short weeks!

Is that amount of infra-bass something you find very often?

No… but I think a lot of that is something that’s (a) an interaction with the room and (b) how the spectrogram is presenting information. I’m checking with the software’s author for clarification.

Wow, big difference from True Lies.

Hopefully you have the new Aliens Atmos in the queue ;)

Probably not for lack of trying. If the studio won't issue it to them, there's nothing they can do about it. Would be nice to see those options pop up, tho. Agree!

Perhaps! Honestly, after True Lies I wasn't interested in either of the other two films. But, perhaps, Aliens needs a run!
