Features :

The 70mm 6-track sound mix used for this AC-3 disc was mixed for SENSURROUND release as a test because Fox was considering adopting the MCA SENSURROUND Special Effects System after the failure of their "Sound 360" system. However Fox decided to go with the cheaper Dolby Stereo System instead, but the 70mm SENSURROUND mix was still used with some theaters employing SENSURROUND horns for their 70mm showings. Thus, this disc has deep, infrasonic bass that isn't present in any other video release. It also has some different music cues making it a one of a kind version of the film. The 2 channel Dolby Stereo MP Matrix surround mix on the LD's digital tracks was monitored using the modified Tate DES surround decoding system.



Due to the large volume of inventory I have, I am not able to test every disc. All items are untested unless stated otherwise. Because all items are vintage new old stock or used/secondhand, there are no returns. However if the disc has laser rot or your order arrived damaged, please contact me for store credit. If you are unhappy with your order for any other reason, please send me an email describing the issue and we can work something out!



Please note that disc photos are my stock photos, unless stated as otherwise, and actual item condition may vary from these photos

All discs/covers are graded along the same lines as the Goldmine Record Grading Scale


Tested discs with any signs of laser rot will be graded along the LDDB laser rot scale:

  • 1/5 - Light rot: a few speckles, hard to notice, might be a scratched master
  • 2/5 - Medium rot: still can be watched but speckles are becoming distracting
  • 3/5 - Heavy rot: multicolored snow all over the screen
  • 4/5 - Critical rot: analog sound is distorted, digital sound clicks and pops
  • 5/5 - Death: disc cannot be played anymore

If you have specific questions about discs and condition, I'm always happy to answer questions and provide photos! Feel free to email me!
