Star Wars Music Altered for the New DVD Release

Star Wars Music Altered for the New DVD Release.

Apparently there are a few flaws in the way the music has been mastered for the new DVD release on A New Hope. The music on the surround speakers has been flipped left/right, so that eg. a violin might come from the front right and rear left speakers, rather than the front right and rear right.

There is also an issue with the music during the first dive to attack the Death Star, whereby the music is not audiable from the front speakers, therefore making it practically inaudiable for about 15 seconds, instead of the strong Force theme music that used to exist there.

Lucasfilm deny it is a problem and claim that it is a creative decision.
