No it typically is in 16mm. Relative to - hell relative to anything

It can be acceptable, especially if you limit dynamic range. But, you
know, even something like MP3 smokes it OTOH.

I've thought about solutions, and have tried them (DTS). But in the
face of comparatively little serious interest in the issue of 16mm
projection and sound quality......

IOW some solutions are potentially there but at a time when 16mm
projection itself is becoming an anomaly.

How this plays out in the longer term with 16mm becoming a very
specialized projection format (hey it's pretty much "just us" who are
interested) I don't know.
