Linear PCM Audio??? Ugh!

"Although the video quality of the DVD itself is very good. The audio tracks are on the verge of being unlistenable. It sounds as if the content was mastered for an internet multimedia release, such as a Real Audio or Quicktime video stream for 128K or lower speeds. Yes, the audio sounds that bad. After returning a copy of the DVD (thinking it was defective) and getting a replacement, only to have the same audio scratchiness coming from my speakers. I noticed on the back of the packaging in small print "Linear PCM". Well, that explained everything right there.Consider this (pardon the pun). A good majority of the material on this DVD was already available on VHS release. Whereas the extra material had been broadcasted on various websites as streaming media feeds. Would it have cost Warner less money to remaster all the extra footage up to at least the standards of the material from the VHS release? Or, to simply downsample the VHS material to the audio format of the additional footage? "...and when the heist was over, I guess I got burned."Both Warner and the band's management should be ahamed of themselves for allowing something with such poor production quality to be released.Unless you MUST have everything related to Filter. I would recommend passing on this DVD and getting the Phenomenology VHS release instead."
Great Footage, but is the audio supposed to sound like this?

"This disc is chock full of Promo videos, Live clips, interviews, and behind the scenes footage. Too bad they couldn't include the Take A Picture video as well. Maybe this was so they could get the disc out on time. The video is of really excellent quality, especially the live footage from Madrid and San Francisco. The audio, however, is a different story altogether. It has a harsh, distorted quality that sounds almost like digital clipping. Was this intended by the artists/producer? At first I thought that it was intentional for the Welcome To The Fold video. But I noticed that the whole disc is this way, even the interview segments. Has anyone else noticed this? Let me know if you have. 1 star off for the bad audio. Later!"
Great dvd but....

"I finally bought my copy of this DVD last week, and I mean *finally* considering it has been 2 years since it's release, and didn't have a DVD player beforehand then, and I am also somewhat a fan of both NIN and Filter, but anyway, I didn't seem to have any problems with the audio like everyone else, but.... I was disgusted that I was mis-lead to believe that "Title of DVD" would consist of more interviews and material of everything since Brian Liesegang's departure (Sep.1997) up to Title of Record (Aug.1999), basicly starting with everything after Phenomenollogy release, instead I feel that I basicly bought Phenomenology on DVD, I mean, I already have the VHS version release, I'm sorry to slam the DVD like this but I am honest as hell, but I think that only 10% of it is Title of Record videos and material, also if I were Ricahard Patrick I would have waited until I was finished with the live touring of Title of Record that year (Sep.1999 to Late 2000), then announce the release of Title of DVD, that way there would be live videos of the track listings from Title of Record, but poor Richard didn't think of that though :-þ But anyway, I also noticed that the DVD didn't have as many music videos as it should have, both Take a Picture and The Best Things videos were not on this DVD, and not to mention (Can't You) Trip Like I Do was not placed along-side with One (is the loneliest number) video, I'm reffering to the *supposedly* Soundtracks section of the DVD, but thanks to WindowsMX.com I have all the music vids. But oh yeah I forgot the band wouldn't be able to do any of this anyway considering they already consumed most of the available space of the DVD with Phenomenology B.S. But anyway, overall this DVD was OK, the Desert Donuts is funny as hell, and it had Welcome to the Fold video, and the VERY brief but entertaining interview of Title of Record, but like the other reviewer mentioned already on here, if your a DIEHARD fan of Filter you should buy it. Yeah I agree to that, otherwise wait until the release of "Title of DVD part II"."
Should be better...

"This DVD has some great music, but the sound quality really sucks, which detracts completely from the experience. Also, the title of the DVD is very misleading, since almost all the music comes from their earlier work, not Title of Record. Still, if you're a fan, you're gonna wanna have it."
