In 1987, I attended the unveiling of Dolby Digital for 35mm film. The 
demonstration was very impressive although one could tell when the sound 
was switched, back & forth, between DD and the analog sound track which 
was Dolby SR encoded. Afterwards, I pointed out (at the time) to David 
Gray & Tom Scott, that there were less than a dozen theaters equipped to 
play an SR encoded track....world wide. This meant that the vast 
majority of theaters that installed DD, would be playing an SR encoded 
soundtrack through a system designed to play Dolby A.........UGH!

David pointed out that Dolby had done several focus groups &, much to 
his surprise, the listeners couldn't tell the difference or, didn't care.

My $0.02
