FUNimation’s official Twitter stream has just been updated with the following tidbits:
The DBox will have Jap voice track w/orgnl Jap music – mono (default track) and Eng track w/orgnl Jap Music in 5.1 surround.
More on the DBox — The Eng track with TV broadcast music has been removed.
It appears that FUNimation’s upcoming “Dragon Box” sets will contain two audio tracks: (1) the original Japanese language track, and (2) the slightly revised English dub with the original Japanese musical score (previously released on the faux-“remastered” season sets).
The previous faux-“remastered” season sets contained three audio tracks: (1) a slightly revised English dub with the original Japanese musical score [stereo], (2) the English dub as broadcast on North American television including its musical score [stereo], and (3) the original Japanese track [mono]. A surround-sound 5.1 track for the broadcast dub had been included on the previously-released and midway-canceled “Ultimate Uncut Edition”. With FUNimation’s upcoming “Dragon Box” sets bumping the episode count from six on the Japanese releases to seven on their own and even more audio tracks, there had been concerns over compromises to the visual quality of the sets, arguably their most important attribute.
