Glad you got your set, X, with no hassels this time.
If you read my full review, it does mention the sound issue on "Bonanza". However, I feel it is still an improvement from past releases. My TV is hooked up to my Denon receiver and is played through Infinity speakers, so I played the old and new release of the short, and there is an improvement at the drop out point. The sound change is so drastic, that it may appear that it is no better because it goes from rich sound to flat rather abruptly, but it is still better than before.
