OK this is an amazing DTS Demo Disc.
full film is on 3 sides, playback is perfect.
all the mint marks are different than the ones listed here on LDDB.
disc one has some issues with the label and light scuffs, disc 2 is much better.

looking to sell this super rare disc, if you want to make me an offer PM me.
i will donate the proper % fees IF this sells here on LDDB so Julien will get his cut.
thanks everybody :thumbup:

i don't own the mass produced release, but i believe its just an early pressing with different mint marks and labels, sleeve etc.
it has the full film with analog and static/DTS on the digital channels.

and only a handful would have ever been made for demo purposes

I have quite a few test pressings of music LDs done with various sound and picture levels that I got from a former employee at one of the Pioneer plants over in the US. He had a whole box and sent me them for free when I bought some other stuff. I'm sure many of these leaked out over the years.

tested the DTS playback for??
but to answer that, no i didn't test it, my setup no longer has a digital in the amp.
i don't see any issue with the DTS playback at all, it was just static when played on my setup now.

I have this same disc. This is not the same disc as what was issued officially from Universal through Image Entertainment. This is essentially the original THX release (42580) with a DTS soundtrack added. The THX trailer at the beginning DOES NOT have any DTS audio, and there is no DTS trailer.

My copy had a huge label on side 2 so that you couldn't play it, but with a little care, it pealed off no problem.

this didn't have a sticker on side 2 of the second disc.
i believe disclord ended up buying this from me in the end.
so i can't tell you if it has the trailer or not, i don't remember this pressing with a trailer?

The label on side 2 of the first disc is what I'm referring to. It extended nearly 3/4 of an inch into the playable area to make it so the laser couldn't focus to start up. When I pealed it off, I was happy to find that the disc played correctly.

Finding these "one-off" discs is great fun. I know that Disclord enjoys having them too. I've got a handful of Warner Bros. films that are on LD, Full Frame, designed for PPV playback. The same program is on both sides, so to watch the film, you have to change discs (rather than sides). There are no Home Video logos, side bumpers, trailers, chapter stops, nothing - just the film from beginning to end.

Side 3 has a different reference number: 20-950 and a sticker on the back: "Warning: This is not a licenses THX demo LaserDisc. Please do not demonstrate chapter 1 starting with the THX logo."

Likely this is the first DTS LaserDisc. The official release of Apollo 13 was about a month after Jurassic Park. I assume this Demo was before Jurassic Park.
