I just checked for the one instance mentioned in the review (other mentions were generally speaking and I need specifics) and based on my ears, sounds the same as the old Blu-ray which isn't a surprise since the audio was provided by MGM. And BTW, I didn't feel it was "garbled", that's just Reno's voice IMO. He has a strange, deep inflection.

If that deters you from buying, I think you're missing out. And as I said, the audio was given by MGM so it's not going to be corrected unless the studio has a different one laying around or Arrow decided to invest on restoring it.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

Yeah, I'm getting Ronin no matter what. I'm honestly surprised - and very happy - this movie is getting any kind of special edition treatment. If Arrow acknowledges the sound issues, so be it. But not a deal breaker for me.

That changes things. The way it was phrased in the review it seemed like the reviewer was saying they were defects and specific to that release. I only have the old DVD and no other review I found mentions anything about sound issues with prior releases. If it's that way on the other BD, it's possible the original soundtrack has an issue, or the reviewer just exaggerated. Thanks for checking and posting.
