When I sat down to watch the Blu-ray review copy of the hit DreamWorks animated feature Kung Fu Panda 3 at the weekend, it didn't take long to realise that something about the audio sounded a little 'off'. A quick look at the disc's Set-Up sub-menu revealed the problem – the only English language track available (as with the multiude of other language tracks) was presented as 'lossy' DTS 5.1! Which seemed rather strange given that the previous two Kung Fu Panda films had been chanpioned for the dynamic lossless multichannel soundtracks that accompanied them on Blu-ray.
