1.0 out of 5 stars Audio Problems!, July 14, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Animaniacs, Vol. 4 (DVD)
This score is not a reflection of the episodes themselves, as I have not watched many episodes to judge. I score based on some troubling audio issues I have found with many of the episodes on this set.

First of all, where the prior three sets have 5.1 surround audio masters, as in five separate channels of sound, the fourth volume is only in stereo sound, AKA only two. This in itself is regrettable, but the problems only escalate.

Episodes 90 through 97 and 99 are all in bare-bones MONOPHONIC audio, as in only ONE channel of sound. Think that's not so bad? Well, not only that, but by examining past VHS copies of these episodes, it seems that some if not all of these mono channels use only one half of the stereo track.

For example, in the episode Macadamia Nut, the audio from the left channel is also used on the right, so that Wakko is on the left and Yakko on the right, you will hardly hear Yakko at all. The correct mixing is used on the VHS copy, which is how this issue was identified.

Therefore, I would advise anyone who has yet to purchase to refrain until the issues are clarified and hopefully resolved.
