Awesome review, looks like I'll be hanging on to the old release for the extras.

Which English dub is used for the English audio?  The original one from the old Criterion Laserdisc/VHS releases or the re-done one that was on the DVD releases?  Or dare I hope, BOTH?  Of course I prefer the original Japaense audio with english sub-titles anyway, but it would be nice to have everything together for completeness' sake (plus he old dub is somewhat nostalgic for myself and many others)

One glaring error I need to point out - the film was released in 1988, not 1998.

It only has the newer dub that Geneon produced in 2001.

I am a tad confused. I too have a PS3 and a Onkyo TX-SR605 Receiver. When I select the Japanese TrueHD track on the Blu-Ray, use Bitstreaming for the audio feed from the PS3 to the receiver, and select Direct for sound processing option on the Onkyo, all I get is the front 2 channels. Are you doing something different than I am?

I have checked my user manual and avsforum.com. People on the forum seem to have said that the 605 cannot process 192kHz TrueHD streams.
