Trailer 3 for Star Trek Beyond is now available as a .mp4 with AC3 5.1 audio, or an .mkv with lossless FLAC 7.1 and AC3 5.1. This is my second trailer to feature 7.1 and I hope you enjoy the result. This is not the official mix, it was mixed by me using the individual dialogue, music and effects tracks. I find that playback of the FLAC track using my Onkyo TX-NR747 175-Watt 7.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver  to be a bit lower in volume than the AC3 track, and I am not sure why. I never noticed a difference in volume levels with my Denon receiver, so I hesitate to modify anything in the audio track. It may be a setting on the Onkyo or in MPC-HC, which I have been using for playback lately instead of Plex. I need to look into it. Trailer 3 can be found at the Star Trek Beyond page.

I also want to take a moment to recognize the recent death of Anton Yelchin, who played Checkov in the Star Trek reboot, including Star Trek Beyond. He was perfect in the role, and at just 27 he is a talent lost all too soon.

  1. I find that nearly all FLAC files that are decoded in the player (like having the PS4 set to PCM) have a lower volume than when the file is bitstreamed using the native codec to the receiver (I have a Yamaha A1030). Even setting the PS4 to bitstream (dolby) increases the subjective volume by a few dBs. I’ve yet to really find a reason for this other than “yeah, that’s just what it does.”

    1. To reply to myself, the reason for the subjective volume increase *should* be because the lossy codec is compressing the dynamic range.
